The Concert-BareNaked Ladies

We had a blast!
We left here at about 2pm. Got downtown and parked by the old Woodwards building (that is now gone) and went to The Met for a beer. After we walked over to The Cambie and had a beer there too. We walked back to the car and drove to the library and parked the car for the evening. We strolled over to Richards st were the Kingston is located,(just a warning,the front door opens easily,I flung it open and thought the window was going to shatter) and we were seated right away, even tho we were early. The Dine out menu looked tasty. So we all ordered from it. We each ordered a different appy to share. The main entree we all ordered the steak dinner(it was very yummy) and dessert was chocolate cake or key lime pie. Only 25.oo for each of us. The guys had beer and I had wine. The place filled up quickly. As we were leaving there were no seats left and there was a line at the front door. This time Gregg almost broke the door.

With our tummies pleasantly full, we waddled up the street and followed the crowd. It was still a bit early to go to GM Place so we made a pit stop at Moxie’s Bar. It was full. We each had a beer(which I never drank since it tasted terrible(Moxie’s home brew)) and found a corner to stand in. Gregg polished off my beer and his and the 3 of us were on our way again.

The streets were full of people. I think the R.V. show was at B.C. Place. There were a lot of people walking in that direction. We entered G.M. Place and just flowed with the wave of people. I found the T-shirt stand right away and bought one. Glad I did, cause after the show the line ups were huge. Our seats were pretty good. We were in section 107 row 25 seats 103-105. I would of loved to have been closer but those tickets were all sold out.

As we watched the opening act “Tom Swick” we had some drunken woman entertain us. I guess she was sitting in someone else’s seat and had to move. Where did she move to? right next to me! She started to talk to me but I couldn’t understand a word she tried to say…LOL.
Finally her boyfriend showed up and moved her over a seat and he sat next to me. Now I really need to go into this topic for a moment. This woman was so drunk and out of control it was funny at first. She asked a few people sitting around us if someone had rolling papers cause she wanted to smoke a joint. No one had any, thankfully. But a few minutes later a man walked up to her and flashed a badge and said”hand over the pot or I will take you out of here”. She did and then complained to everybody. (I’m not sure if he was a real cop).Her boyfriend sat and drank beer the whole night.(I counted 7 for him and 4 for her) She danced to every song and even danced when there was no music. I got tired just watching her! Oh yeah, she did call me a snob at one point cause I wasn’t talking to her…LOL.

Anyways, we had a great time. The music was fantastic! I love Steven Page’s voice. He can really belt out those notes. They do a lot of improve thru the show. Loved the “bald men” song they made up…LOL. I took a lot of pics and a few little video clips. Most of the photos are posted on our Flickr site . Here is a video I took of the stage lights. It was not a fancy stage but once it lit up it was awesome.

After the show we left Vancouver and headed home. It was still early so we stopped off at the Boulevard Casino just before the Port Mann Bridge and had a drink. We were all so dehydrated that Diet Coke was the drink…LOL. We walked around and watched all the people gambling their money away. Finally we were heading home. We got home at about 1am.

So there you have it! Our fun evening. I’m sure Gregg will go into more detail when he does his blog post. I know I probably left out a few things that he will talk about…lol.
