Hi! This weekend was great! I got in friend time, boy time, and garth time. Yes, Garth Brooks!! More on that later.
Saturday, after a seriously tough bootcamp class (the 300 workout-10 exercises, 30 reps each) I met my friend at Eddie D’s for lunch. She found this sandwich shop online after reading through the many good reviews.
The menu was full of delicious looking pasta, pizza, and sandwiches. How to choose…
The place was very open which I really liked. You could see the folks making the food right out in front.
After getting seated, the hostess quickly brought over a hot meatball for us to sample. It reminded me a lot of my mother’s. Those Italians know how to make meatballs.
The menu was had so many options, which made it difficult to choose. We decided to order sandwiches and split. Best of both worlds!
I ordered The Dante. Prosciutto, fresh mozzarella, sweet roasted peppers on signature bread.
Adrielle chose the The Meadow. Eggplant, sharp provolone, broccoli rabe & roasted red peppers on signature bread.
I was a bit unsure about the sandwich she ordered (broccoli rabe in a sandwich?) but it was just delicious! The flavors of the breaded eggplant complimented the broccoli and peppers so well! My friend and I got caught up on work, boys, and planning a girls trip. With great food and even better conversation, it was a fabulous afternoon. I am looking forward to going back to Eddie D’s.
The highlight of my weekend was going to see Garth Brooks at the Encore.
I scored free tickets to the show and swanky boyfriend and I were so excited!
The boy was even more excited than me since he is quite the country fan!
Garth Brooks plays only a handful of shows here in Vegas and I have heard the tickets are super difficult to get your hands on.
Although I wasn’t able to snap pictures during the show, I have to say it was just amazing!! It was just Garth and his guitar.
He took us through a “journey” of his life and the music that inspired him. His wife, Trisha Yearwood, even came onstage and sang a couple songs with him.
The list of songs included Friends in Low Places, The Thunder Rolls, and Baton Rouge. One of my favorites of the night who just happens to be Garth’s is The Dance. Although he said he didn’t write that song, he just loved the words and wished he had written it. I loved hearing more about his life and music. Such a different style of show compared to anything I have seen.
Hoping for a speedy workweek. I didn’t realize ‘til today that this week starts
the fall line up! Yay! I can’t wait for How I Met Your Mother and Castle! You think Ted will actually meet his wife this season?? I mean, he really needs to. I don’t know how much longer I can tune in. Anyone agree?
Hope you had a great weekend!
What fall shows are you looking forward to? Do you like Garth?
