Reggae Night at the Bowl

I typically hate concerts.  But I LOVE the Hollywood Bowl.  Why?   You can bring your own food and more importantly, your own booze.  You're outside, the weather's perfect, and if you're lucky enough to score box seats, you get this little table that you can put your little picnic basket on and if you're feeling particularly Martha Stewarty, you bring a little table cloth to put over the table.  

So we went for Reggae night to commemorate our friends' departure from the City of Angels...

Our friends left LA on Monday to go back to Michigan (they were here for a year - M was doing a fellowship).   We had some sandwiches, fruit, cheese, crackers, cookies, and of course Red Red Wine.  Good times.  

Me and N:

Opening act.   They were really good and got the crowd on their feet.  Unfortunately, not everyone could dance very well, but even that didn't bother me.  I was feeling particularly magnanimous and it was nice to see the audience happy.

Headliners - UB-40.  I was disappointed that they didn't do that Red Red Wine rap... you know the one - "Red, red wine you make feel so fine... you keep me rocking, all of de time..."  That's my jam!

Perfect way to spend a summer evening...  We'll miss you M and N!  :(

Omg, how could UB-40 *not* do the Red Red Wine rap?! That's such a key part of the song.

I KNOW! I felt cheated. Drinking more red red wine helped though.

I'm with Ann Marie on this. You should've thrown things at them.
