I’ve hinted at it here and there but I don’t think I’ve ever really come out and said it. Jeff (aka Waff) and I are heading over the pond next month to visit our guy, Bruce Springsteen at the RDS Soccer stadium in Ireland!!!!!
One night over our christmas break, we semi drunkenly purchased two tickets to see Bruce in Dublin, something that we’ve always dreamed about doing. It was one of those things where we didn’t really think it all through, it just sounded awesome, so we did it.
Over the course of the last six months we’ve saved and purchased actual airline tickets to make it offish, booked hotel rooms and planned an itinerary. We’re heading out in just a few short weeks and I can barely stand the wait. It’s all starting to finally seem real.
We visited Dublin back in 2007 and have a decent feel for the city. We will probably do a lot of what we did last time; sit in pubs, eat, drink, visit the Guinness brewery gravity bar, stop by the Jameson distillery, go see Bruce, spend a night with Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros and maybe catch the new Wes Anderson flick. We’ll just be going for a short stint so we’ll be packing it full.
We haven’t had any time off since Christmas and we are ready for a break away from the kids. Lucky for me, my folks are totally awesome and going to come watch ‘em. CAN’T. THANK. THEM. ENOUGH. They totally rule for taking on these bunch of crazies.
