In the pit, but it was good!!

This weekend, we went up to visit my girlfriend, Eva and her family.  About 5 month ago, she called me and said she had tickets for the Lee Brice, Dierks Bentley and Miranda Lambert concert and asked if we could go.  We went up on Saturday morning: she lives outside of Saratoga, so about 3 hours away.  it was great to see her and her family.

We went out for dinner to Carrabba's.  It was my first time there and it was really, really good...surprisingly!  We will go again!

Then we headed to Albany for the concert.  She said she thought we had good seats on the floor.  When we got there, we headed for Floor Access and after the security people checked our tickets, they kept telling us which way to go.  We kept going forward and forward and forward.  Then we were in front of the stage and getting special wristbands put on.....REALLY???  We were in front of the stage!  No seats.....it's called the pit and it was OMG close.

The first artist was Lee Brice (I drive your truck, Love like crazy):

This is how close I was....no zoom, rip in the shirt, sweat on the shirt, sweat on the fans close!!!!
Dierks Bentley up next......no zoom.......
Miranda Lambert - no introduction necessary, I don't think - She was great and the headliner!
Two of her band members...
Hubby and I  (standing for over three hours - it was tough, but worth it!!!)
The Locked & Reloaded banner before she came out!  

It was the best concert I have ever been to....I don't think I will ever get that good of seats again (and they weren't even seats!)

After the concert, we headed to the Racino!  A Casino at the Racetrack at Saratoga!  There are no tables, just slots, but we had some fun and we actually won a few a dollars!    I went to bed at 1:45 am, the latest I have been to bed in months and months (and months)......And the best part of the weekend, is when I got home, my daughter was home from college!!  For  a whole week!!!
