Connie’s Restaurant Review

Boy oh boy did I get lucky with this one. For Restaurant Week, 2015 I got the honor to go to Rose's on Reeds Lake. I wasn't the ONLY one who got lucky though... I took a friend of mine along with me, because she had never (GASP!) been to Rose's! Can you imagine?? Neither could I.

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.
