Earth, Wind & Fire

On Saturday night we saw Earth, Wind & Fire Live at the Garden. Peter put his name in to get tickets through work and won! The seats were unbelievable. The typical Live at the Garden experience involves packing a picnic and throwing down a blanket in the lawn then watching the show on one of the two screens. It's really very pleasant.  However, the tickets Peter got were in the table section and included access to a food and drink tent. It was unreal! We were just four tables from the stage. As for the show, Earth, Wind & Fire was a blast. There are three original members still performing but their energy level is on par with, if not greater than, the young guns who have joined along the way (and I'm not the only one who says so!).

After the show, we went to Alchemy for a bite to eat and some drinks. It's worth noting, not just because everything there is delicious, but because it's a bar friendly and accommodating to the nondrinker. When I asked the waiter if the bartenders would make a mocktail for me, he replied, "Certainly. What would you like?" Apparently Alchemy has over 30 purees and can make dozens of delicious combinations with them. Additionally, the bartenders will gladly adapt the drinks on the cocktail menu. Having been to a handful of bars without creative drink menus and even less creative bartenders, it was a refreshing change of pace for this expectant momma.
