One Happy Jersey Girl

The LSH was full of surprises today.  He managed to score 2 tickets to one of the Springsteen concerts at Giants Stadium in the fall.  Bruce & the band are doing the last concerts ever at Giants Stadium, as it's going to be torn down after this season.  It's only fitting that Bruce & the gang be the final act, as they hold the record in concert attendance (56 sold-out concerts, not including the shows this fall) at the Meadowlands, the entertainment/sports complex that includes Giants Stadium and the Izod Center.  
A few weeks ago, we received an invite to a party on June 20, which happens to be my birthday.
I assumed we would be going, so I was going to RSVP.  But the LSH said "I was going to surprise you.  I got tickets to see the Mets on that day."  Yippee!  Now, I just have to decide what I'm going to have to eat at the ballpark that day,  a Shackburger, the best burger we've ever had, from Danny Meyers' Shake Shack, or the taco platter from the Taqueria, or maybe some ribs from Blue Smoke. No matter what I have, I have to save room for this from Mama's of Corona:


  1. OMG! CONGRATS!! I got tickets too! I'm going the FINAL night! I have been stunned ALL DAY! I got thru on the phone....who would have thought it....enjoy the Mets! And the food!

  2. So glad you now have tickets! And enjoy that cannoli - looks delicious

  3. I am so jealous! And happy for you. The best place to see Bruce.
    I didn't know they were tearing down Giant's Stadium. My high school won the state championship there in '77. Sad.

  4. OMG, that's just mean showing a chocolate dipped Mets-sprinkles cannoli... I drooled so much my keyboard is ruined... congrats on the Boss tix though, and Happy Early Birthday!

  5. You Jersey people have all the fun! I miss it LOL! I am visiting in June though!
