Happy Elf

Eva went with momma to the mall to the Bare Essentials store so momma could get her Christmas gift to herself, or from me, not sure. When she came home she handed me a small bag and said she’d give me the receipt tomorrow so we could enjoy our night tonight.

Tonight we went to the Loren and Wally Comedy event at Foxboro Showcase Live at Patriot Place. The event was a fundraiser for Camp Harborview in Boston. Loren and Wally are the morning guys on WROR 105.7 in Boston. I had been listening to them each morning on the way to work because unlike other morning shows I enjoy these guys and they also play classic rock. But come November the format switched to “Boston’s Best Christmas Song” What! In November! Forget that, I went back to the local country station.

The Showcase Live venue was a decent one but the event was oversold and we were lucky to get seats. We did get seats and it was decent after all. The roster consisted of Tony V., Kelly McFarland, Rich Siesler, and then The Kevin Connolly Band, Tom Doyle did some townie toons and then after that Lenny Clarke took the stage and rocked it. The show ended with Kevin Meaney.

Kevin’s set ended strong but it was punctuated with so many moments of uncomfortable silence that it wasn’t the best set for me. But we had a good night none-the-less.

Before the show we had a great meal at Portabella’s downtown. It is a very nice Italian restaurant that has been around for a year or so now. This was our first time there too. Tonight was our celebration to ourselves for our 3rd anniversary.
