Tonight was the last of the twilight concert series. Calexico and the French Kicks performed- both were awesome. It was so much fun. I had seen Calexico perform once before, they opened for Iron and Wine and I loved them then. I also love them now. Mariachi meets a little rock and roll and it makes my heart happy. I was so excited to see them again that I went to the "Lunch Bunch" today with the kids I work with and put my blanket down at 1pm to secure a spot (we normally go on Mondays). I actually didn't get a chance to put my blanket down because I had to leave, but this really nice guy put my blanket down for me. At the end of the night tonight, the guy came up to me and said that I owed him a kiss for putting my blanket down- he was very drunk and I was very appreciative- so I kissed him twice . . . on the cheek of course. Thanks Greg! Here are some pictures of tonight's festivities.
This is me and Sarah, not sure what we are doing. You can see the guy I kissed in the background. Chris and Aliah. Did you know Aliah is a professional model now? Ask her about it. Oh, I am a model too. . . totally.
Me and Brad- pausing briefly from dancing like crazies. Sarah is still dancing like a crazy in the background.
Calexico. I am kinda in love with the trumpet/maraca player.
There is ALWAYS an after party. This one happened to be at Alberto's and involved a chicken chimichanga.
But my favorite thing of all was very early in the night. There was a man dancing and dancing and dancing. I was able to catch him briefly on video. I wish he had come and danced by me- I would have danced with him- I really would have. It turns out he is a rocket scientist up at the U or something. I love to watch people dance. It made my whole night.
I didn't even get a video of his best moves, but you get the idea. Tonight was a good night.
