What I’m Listening To || Hozier

This one just keeps staying stuck in my head.

You know I like my chicken fried…

This past weekend ‘s adventure took us out to San Bernardino, CA for a Zac Brown Band concert.
20141018_173916Tim is not a big fan of concerts, but this was actually his idea!  His boss got him hooked on Zac Brown a while back and we had heard he is amazing in concert.  So we bought tickets the day they went on sale. (we are just going to ignore the fact that tickets showed up on Groupon a week before the show…)

We headed out there early to eat and stuck with the country theme with a BBQ dinner.

The concert was at San Manuel Amphitheatre. We had no idea it would require such a hike from the parking lot,  but we got to walk off our meal.

Most importantly, the concert was so good!  They played all of our favorites and some surprising covers like Metallica and Red Hot Chili Peppers.

If you like Zac Brown Band and have never seen them live, we highly recommend it.  We both agreed we would go again and would even pay more to sit closer.  They had some really fun stage tricks and design elements we would have loved to see close up.

What a great night!

Orange County Night Market

This weekend we spent some time at the Orange County Night Market with some friends of ours.

I guess night markets are a big thing in Asia, so a group decided to bring them to California.  It was only the 2nd one ever hosted at the Orange County Fairgrounds, and it was great!  Part cheesy carnival, part art walk, and the food! Oh, it was all about the food!    Miister Potato
There were a ton of food trucks and food vendors.  A majority of the food vendors were from Southern California shops and the whole event was heavily Asian inspired.  There were some really weird things… like popping fish balls (Tim says these were awful!), BBQ squid, and… D-Cakes… Yes, dick cake. Penis shaped cake. On a stick.  That made for some great photos that I just refuse to show you. :)

There were, of course, some delicious food options too!  Some highlights for us were Kobi-Ahi’s kobe beef sliders (devoured these well before we could get a picture) and macaroon ice cream sandwiches from Dolcissimo Bakeshop.  Tim is a much more adventurous eater than I am… He had the BBQ squid.

My favorite part of the night was the custom portrait we got drawn of us by Jessica aka Miss Mindful. It’s oh so cute, and has now become this blog header :)

Overall, we had a great time and definitely recommend visiting the Night Market the next time it’s in town.

Lessons Learned

I shouldn’t have dated the guy from the FedEx Printing Shop by my house because now I have to drive to a far away one when I need something done.

Quotables

“You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don’t try to forget the mistakes, but you don’t dwell on it. You don’t let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space.”

||Johnny Cash||
