In August 2012, we were lucky to have made the trek to Toronto to see Bruce Springsteen at the Air Canada Center with 4 of our nearest and dearest friends. One of my friends surprised her husband for his birthday a couple of years ago with tickets to see Bruce Springsteen in Florida, it was spur of the moment and just the two of them. They said that it was THE BEST CONCERT that they had ever seen and we made a pack that the next time he went on tour, we would all go see him together as he was on B & my concert bucket list. When he announced that he was tourning again in 2012, we kept an eye on dates and locations but we couldn’t seem to find a time that all four of us could take the time to go to see him in one of the many US locations that were announced. But then in May a few Canadian dates were announced for the summer and plans were made to take in a show in Toronto! So the four of us along with another couple made plans for a weekend in Toronto. We flew up on a Thursday evening, the concert was Friday night and we made plans to eat in Restaurant 360 in the CN Tower.
The concert was AMAZING!!! Bruce Springsteen is 60 years old and played for 3 hours and 45 minutes, non-stop! It was unbelievable to watch, he probably could have gone on longer but the stage had to be dismantled and transported via truck to New Brunswick for Saturday night show at Magic Mountain. I agree that it was up there as one of the best concerts I have ever seen!
Dinner at Restaurant 360 was another highlight of the weekend. The food, wine and service were great. Probably the funniest comment of the night was from B during a phone conversation checking up on the kids at home was “I think we’re moving.” Up until that moment, he didn’t realize that the restaurant rotated!
On the way up to the restaurant, you can have your photo taken as a momento of the night. Here’s a layout that I made with that photo to commemorate the weekend:
Lots of misting, patterned paper and washi tape going on in this one. I used some travel themed wood veneers and buttons for embellishments and I just love the color and font of those chipboard letters!
And those wood veneer cameras are some of my favorite embellishments to use these days! The background paper is from the Basic Grey Basics line.
All in all, it was a great weekend spent with great friends. Looking forward to lots more of these weekends and trips in the future!
