Best time ever! An evening downtown with MUSE!

February 7, 2013

So had the best time ever! Evening out with my children, a lovely supper in historic Gastown and rocking out to MUSE.

Adam, Kerstie, Bryson, Chloe and I drove to Gastown, parked up and walked to the Pourhouse for supper. We were going to go to my son Jonathan’s restaurant but couldn’t because of a private party, so we went to his best friend Jonathan’s restaurant instead.

Here’s Jonathan behind his bar. I’ve known him for fifteen years or so and he’s always been Good Jon as compared to my son…

Jon made us a variety of yummy special drinks he invented…

…and we had some lovely appies to share. Some of us had made-to-order burgers, some had French onion soup and Kerstie and I shared a delicious bowl of spicy steamed clams. If you come to Gastown you should go!

We were very happy leaving the Pourhouse and decided that a good brisk walk was in order. LOL

I bought my T-shirt


We got our wrist bands for the floor and ran down hand in hand just in time to welcome MUSE to Vancouver!

I wanted this evening to last and last so I made a little movie using one of my favorite muse songs and some of the movie footage I took and uploaded it to my Media Tala YouTube channel. Here’s the YouTube link

MUSE played the best concert and after it was all over we got the munchies and drove down to Fritz for poutine before finally making it home. That was such a good time.

How many times have I transplanted my grandfather's bleeding hearts?
Round here and a result!

      It was a great time Sabra. πŸ™‚ At the end Chloe said, “Oh man, now I gotta wait for two more years before they come back!”

    You had a FAB night! I’ve seen Muse twice, some years ago mind you and I can honestly say they were the best gigs ever. I never thought a band would sound better live than on a heavily produced cd but they do…you bought that feeling back!! *sticks on Absolution*

    This looks so fun! I can’t wait to do stuff like this with my kids. (Not that I want to age them or anything… the oldest is 12, and I try to appreciate every stage… but this looks so fun!) Thanks for sharing. You’re a way cool mom.

      Thanks Julia! πŸ™‚ I think Kerstie’s first concert was BB King at age 15 and Jonathan’s was the Stones when he was about 16, so not much longer for you to wait. πŸ™‚

    OMG! I loved your video and that SONG!!!! Tell me what album it’s on so I can go buy it.

    Your evening sounded so wonderful. I love all your pictures.

      It’s a good one, isn’t it Cheryl! That’s Supermassive Black Hole off their album Black Holes and Revelations. My kids are all like, “we’re not in sync!”, and I’m like, “shut up! who bothered to take a camera in the first place!” Lol. But no, reality is that they love that I made the movie, and I remembered that I really love making these little movies. πŸ™‚
