Saturday’s Adventure Full of Cars & Food [Photos]

On Saturday, I was at Family Fare in Wyoming for a live remote and at the same time was the 28th Street Metro Cruise so I decided to stick around afterwards and check out some of the cars and indulge in some food truck food. There were lots of people and lots of different classic cars cruising up and down 28th Street and parked in the Rogers Plaza. But, of course, I had to begin my adventure with a corn dog which was so good I forgot to take a picture just to show you how amazing it was.

Christine’s Review of Aerosmith

Last minute I got invited to the Aerosmith concert last night by the same co-worker I went to Bryan Adams with. I was wishy-washy and didn't know if I really felt like going because I had a lot to do but Johnnie said he would buy me food if I went so I agreed. (Side note: food is the way to my heart) 

I'm just going to say that I am totally happy I agreed to go! Aerosmith is a legendary band and they rocked the hell out!!! My ears are ringing until now.
