Thursday we drove down and it was the perfect day for a drive (especially the kind of long drive with no AC.) We just rolled down the windows and it was a nice 5+ hour drive, just felt good to be on the open road and get outta town.
We got a great deal through Hotwire and stayed at the Sheraton downtown, we had a good night just relaxing and flipping through the channels on TV...we don't have cable so we get way too excited about watching random shows we don't normally watch, like How I Met You're Mother...
Friday we went to check out Opening Bell Coffee where Dave was playing later that night. It is the perfect location for live music! We ate lunch there and it was fab, I had the roasted garlic tomato basil soup- SO yummy.
We then headed to Ft. Worth to go get my bestie Erin, that's when the lack of AC finally caught up with us. The traffic was stopped and it was HOT. It wouldn't have mattered as much but we were all dressed and ready for the show that night- oops.
|This is how I feel about no AC|
In Ft. Worth we went to Yucatan Taco Stand for dinner to have some time to catch up with Erin before heading back to Dallas for the show. I got the vegetarian tacos and they were amazing! I was so excited because, being a vegetarian, I usually don't get tacos out anymore (except fish tacos on occasion.) Dave had the Mahi-mahi and it was really good too. Then we rushed back to Dallas for Dave's show.
The show went really well and the place was packed! Dave will definitely be doing another show there soon. We got to meet our Twitter friends Maria and Steve Manning (@Maria_Manning and @SteveManning) for the first time! They are such a sweet, cute couple and I'm so glad we finally got to meet in real life :) I can't wait to meet more of our twitter peeps when we start traveling more for shows this summer! PS~ if you're not following us, I'm @MallorieOwens on twitter and Dave is @Daveowensmusic...
After the show we drove back to Ft. Worth and stayed up way too late drinking wine, watching funny youtube videos, and just hanging with my bff...it was perfect :) I'm still beating myself up that I didn't get any pictures though! ...next time.
Saturday we woke up and went to lunch at Spiral Diner, it's a vegan place...delish! And my kinda place :) We checked out a coffee shop in Ft. Worth and talked to them about Dave playing there and then it was time to head home. The drive home was a super hot and sweaty one, it took a little longer to get home because we needed to stop and get cold drinks and cool ourselves off a few times. We were sad to leave, but happy to know we'll be back soon :)
