Hi friends, guess what?!? Last night Mr. Hungry and I went to a reggae concert (that’s why I wasn’t able to get a post up last night) I mean Reggae isn’t my thing, I don’t really LOVE it or HATE it, but Mr. Hungry likes it so I figured why not go on a little date. When I got home from work we changed and headed out to Tempe because we weren’t sure how long it would take to get there. Turns out it didn’t take that long so we got there really early, which was good because I was starving! Since Marquee theater doesn’t have food we headed to downtown Tempe and settled on the quickest thing we could find which was Which Wich. I’ve been trying really hard to reduce my intake of food that is on my food sensitivity list so I opted for the cordon blue with ham, chicken, mustard, tomatoes, and cucumber “lettucewiched”
It was delicious and super filling despite the fact it was really just lunch meat and vegetables. I was definitely glad we ate because I would have miserable standing for four hours without some sort of food in my belly. The concert was awesome, I enjoyed it so much more than I thought I would!
The opening acts were okay, but for some reason I just can’t understand what they are saying… it’s like Reggae lyrics are a totally different language. However, the actually band totally blew me away. It’s like a cross between Bob Marley and John Mayer, not only could I understand it, but I actually enjoyed it a lot. I loved that they had multiple different instruments including the saxophone, my fav. So there you go, you can always try new things! I thought it would be a bunch of stoned high school kids, but the crowd was pretty diverse. As for the venue, Marquee theater isn’t exactly impressive, it’s all first come first serve. I was happy we ate before because there is no food served and no coffee (I sound like I’m in my 20’s with no kids right? ha ha I guess I’m more of a homebody then I thought.) We did share a really strong drink though, which was really just enough!
Hope your having a good week!
