Weekend started off without a focus or plan, until Thursday around noon. I got word the local USO was distributing free Kid Rock tickets and all I needed to do was call. So, call I did and secured two for Mandy and me. Triah, Drewsuf, TJ, Melissa and Casey all jumped on the phone right after me and threw down on the free tix. The show was scheduled to start at 8pm friday and was supposed to be three hours long. 5:30 pm Friday we started the trek to the RBC Center Raleigh, NC to take part in KidFest. Shameless plug for Best Western on Capital Blvd in Raleigh, more specifically; John the Front Desk guy who was gracious enough to move us to a bigger room with two queen-sized beds whilst still maintaining our fantastic $59.99, government/internet rate.
The show was amazing. We had the aforementioned free tickets and the stigma surrounding ‘free’ is synonymous with ‘crappy’. These tickets were perfect. I could’ve if compelled, literally whip a baseball at Kid Rock. Not to mention we had our own concession area with exclusive access to bathrooms and the pretzel stand. $10 beers…but they were good beers. Sapporo was my beer of choice for this musical adventure and boy was it delicious. Light and flavorful. The show was everything you’d want to be, every Kid Rock Song I wanted to hear was played, including his entire new album:Rock and Roll jesus.
After the three hours of Rocking the Kid we ended up at Perkins for post-concert pancakes. Before I finish this story I’m going to hit on another topic. The restaurant was on a street called Yonkers Road. Yonkers sounds similar to something pertaining to ejaculate. So everything from then on was yonkered on or of or partaining to yonker. So, we ended up at Perkins eating things that reminded us of yonker. The butter was yonker, the runny eggs were yonker, everything was yonker or yonkered.
Thanks for reading.
