Ok. Lezz be honest.
I'm not really one for debauchery any more. I mean you reach a certain age where the hangovers hang around a bit longer and hitting up the clubs like you did back in your college hey day is just not as appealing.
I am excited to hang out with my bestie and her Texas group of gal pals, though.
You know what else gets me excited?
A really amazing country concert with a good meal, some drinks and the best group of friends. I mean, we really do have the greatest group of friends. And man, oh man, are they fun.
Let's get to it, shall we?
Earlier this summer we planned a little outing to Stir Cove for a good ole country concert...so these are my five things that make up what it takes to have a great time at an outdoor, country concert.
This guy...Dierks Bentley. Honestly I haven't listened to him in quite some time, but it was Nick who introduced me to his music years ago and I have to say he was pretty amazing in person. Not Eric Church, Kenny Chesney or Justin Timberlake amazing, but still really good. =)

Time with this guy. I mean, how great is it to get to go out and spend some time with your main man?
This place. One of my favorite venues in all the city...Stir Cove. And could we have asked for a more perfect night?
Cocktails. Well, duh. I mean, come on when is the last time you heard about a really great night out that didn't include cocktails? And when it starts with a dirty Chopin martini and ends with a Fireball shot...it doesn't get much better.
And these yahoos. Some of the best friends a gal could ask for. Some have been with us for many years, some are family and in-laws and some are new friends, but they all make an outing like this something pretty special. Mr. Mango and I are pretty lucky folks.

There ya have it. If you want to have fun at a concert...follow these steps and I promise you, you will not be disappointed!
By the way - any Dierks fans out there? As good as he was in person, I think this boy nails it. What do you think?? =)
