Date Night

We kicked off our beach week with a date night to the House of Blues to see Toad the Wet Sprocket.  It was the perfect start to our vacay – something Matt and I had been looking forward to for months.  The last couple months Matt’s been working tons of shifts – I think he had 11 night shifts in a row in the PICU at one point.  This concert had been a major “carrot” getting us through the end of winter here.


The HOB was a great venue (we did the upstairs seating, rather than standing room only downstairs) and TTWS put on an awesome show.  Hard to believe the first time I heard them was in 1991 when my Dad bought “Fear.”  20 years later, they still rock.  This is their most well-known song, Walk on the Ocean.  It was their encore.  (Fast forward to 1:00 minute, the first minute was just teaser.)

Um, realizing that I was rocking out to them 20 years ago makes me feel so wicked old.

I love those guys though, and I'm glad to hear they're still rocking it!
