My hubby and I had a real date night on Sunday. You know the kind...when you dress up and go out for a night on the town. We dined at our all time favorite Chicago restaurant, Joe's Stone Crab, and requested our favorite waiter, Nicki, because we knew we would be treated well. We ordered crab bisque soup, John Dory flown in from Australia, giant scallops and grilled asparagus. We left just enough room to split the Key Lime pie for dessert.
After dinner we strolled past the new Trump tower, over the Chicago river and arrived at the Chicago theater. We had tickets for the sold out David Garrett concert. David is my new musical heart throb. It is the kind of music that really "rocks your soul". You know, like when you act like Tom Cruise in Risky Business, dancing alone like a fool in your living room with the shades drawn and the volume way up. Come on, you know what i mean!
David is an accomplished classical violinist from Germany. He started playing the violin at age four and has never stopped. Several years ago his career took a detour when he enrolled at Julliard to study musical composition. He is now a renowned "cross over" musician and his violin is now an electric one. He combines rock with great classical element. He plays both Bach and the Beatles; Beethoven and Guns and Roses, all musical genres and "makes it his own" as Simon Cowell would say. And boy, does he do it well!
It was one of the best concerts ever. Not only is his music amazing, but the combination of his German accent and good looks made every girl in the audience swoon. And to the delight of all the single woman, David did mention several times that he just broke up with his long time girlfriend.
After a two hour performance and two encores, our date night was over and it was time to go home.
But oh, what a night!
