Jersey Boys are Boss!

As we had, indeed, planned, we wound up going to Ma & I for supper. We all ordered sushi as an appetizer (me getting California roll - yum!). judiang and I both ordered tofu pad thai and elsaf ordered shrimp lad nar. Very yummy. Then we cabbed it to Bank of America Theater to watch Jersey Boys.

I've heard music by Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons but didn't always know it was them. But I recognized more than half of the songs in the musical and enjoyed it all. A very fun musical with lots of good music. I did miss some of the dialog in the show (but heard more than Judi, who figures she understood 3% of the dialog). While watching it, I kept wanting to get on Wikipedia to read more about Frankie Valli et al. (Joe Pesci? Really! Wow!) I am SUCH a geek. But I feel a little vindicated cuz Judi admitted the same. :-)

After the show, we took a cab back to where we're picked one up before the show. Cuz we had some ice cream to be eating! Good ol' Marble Slab is open late, so we got ice cream for the walk back to Judi's apartment. I had chocolate swiss and pistachio. Yum!

Now I'm watching Olympics and we're all geeking. I have a couple of photos from our bike trip today, which I shall post under the LJ cut.

We paused along Lake Michigan to turn around and head back. We're on rental bikes.
