I had the best weekend. Ever. So much so that blogging before 10pm was not even an option and even now there are hardly even pictures to go along with the recap. I guess living life will do that to you. Here's how it went down.
Friday night my roommate made the most delicious chicken enchiladas the world has ever seen and then we busted out the tequila and played drinking games on our ghetto RubberMade-upside-down-bin-turned-coffee-table for the majority of the night.
Saturday day was spent frantically doing things I never do: laundry, vacuuming, dishes, massive amounts of Arrested Development, etc. in an attempt to
stop my stomach from exploding with butterflies stay busy and perhaps ward off a possible hangover. There was even a pretty elaborate emoji convo that went down with my girl Emma as a distraction technique. There was also an awesome eye-opening moment where I realized that I had seven new Snapchats and they were all from bloggie friends I've never actually met IRL. #besties Eventually I calmed down and headed to Oakland where I ate delicious goat cheese flatbread with some lovely people and effectively dyed my mouth red by stepping out of my white wine comfort zone. It was a wonderful night.
Sunday. Oh. My. God. Remember this post? Yea, I pretty much died and went to heaven when I realized that this bar in Berkeley not only had bacon vodka (or habanero tequila) but it was also MEAT SHAKE SUNDAY, so this masterpiece had steak on it in addition to a piece of bacon and lots of various delicious pickled vegetables. If you're ever in Berkeley, definitely stop by the Acme Bar & Company. Not only were these bad boys delicious, but the bartenders were awesome and there was a photo booth (which may or may not have been taken advantage of). This was the stop before the Fun. and Tegan & Sara concert (insert fangirl scream here).
The concert was at the Greek Theater, which is an epic venue first of all, and the show started exactly at 7pm, so we climbed up to the top of the hill to enjoy them from afar. They were super fun and awkward and just perfect. There was even a moment where we observed that the night sky was actually changing overhead at the exact same time they sang the lyrics in "Closer." Just perfection. Then we thought we would fight our way to the front of the stage so we could be as close to Nate Ruess as possible.
"Fighting" our way to the front turned into just walking to the front with no problems (have I mentioned how much I love Berkeley?) and eventually a stream of light beamed down on Nate, Jack and Andrew, all looking incredible in tuxes, and rocking the shit out of the "Some Nights" intro. It was amazing. I totally freaked out. This was the fourth and absolute best Fun. performance I've seen. Their energy was intense, Nate was working the crowd, dancing, smiling so big, messing around with the other band members and singing like a damn angel. They even covered Springsteen's "Born to Run," and I think I actually had a seizure from excitement (thanks for still being seen in public with me, friends).
I was legitimately sad when they finished their encore, but the old person in all of us was relieved since it was a Sunday night and all. But of course since it was only 10pm, there was plenty of time to hit up Acme for one more drink, right? 10pm quickly turned into 5am and the one-hour nap I got before work was totally worth it. Seriously, you guys, some most nights life is awesome.
