The Perfect Start to Summer

Last Friday night Katie and Elaine ventured out to the LC Pavilion to see Girl Talk! We went with our co-worker, and former blog guest, Brittany Kress and her best friend/maid of honor to be Emily. Brittany and Emily had seen Girl Talk in concert before, and Katie and as you know - I are always up for something new to do. For those of you who aren't familiar with Girl Talk, he is a DJ who creates remixes. He mixes together mostly current top 40 hits, but will throw in some oldies but goodies as well.

The concert was absolutely packed. If you have ever been to the LC, you know that there is an area where you can stand close to the stage or an area you can stand on up a hill. Most of the time, the area close to the stage turns into a mosh pit, and this concert was no exception. We chose to stand up on the hill because you could see more and you weren't in the middle of the craziness. (Also you were WAY closer to the beverage station.)

It was the perfect night for an outside concert, and as Katie said "It was the perfect start to summer." After seeing Girl Talk once, Katie and Elaine would totally go again. Fun night with Fun friends!

Cheeseburger Wednesday!

Last week Katie and Elaine took Brazenhead, which is located in Dublin off of North High Street. If you live downtown Columbus, there is also a Brazenhead in Grandview located on 5th Ave. Katie and I were in Dublin last week because we were both volunteering for the Memorial Tournament. My mom is in charge of courtesy cars, the committee in charge of driving the players around while they are in town, so we volunteered for her. After taking Katie on a little tour of Dublin to get ready for driving around town, we met my mom for dinner.

We chose to eat at Brazenhead because it was Wednesday, which is $4.50 cheeseburger night. On a typical Wednesday it can get pretty crowded so you have to wait for a table, but we sat right down. There are 4 cheeseburgers on the menu, but you can also get whatever you want on it if you don't like those options. Brazenhead burgers are awesome, but they also come with the most delicious homemade chips EVER! If you order chips, be sure to ask for the white dipping sauce. We aren't sure what is in it, but there is definitely garlic - and garlic is never a bad thing.

Here is a secret tip for your next Brazenhead trip: they used to have a burger on their menu called the Western Burger. It had cheddar cheese, sauteed onions and bbq sauce. For some reason they took it off the menu, but if you know about it you can still order it. Katie and I both did just that, and added sauteed mushrooms. It can get pretty messy, but it is SO GOOD. My mom ordered the standard cheeseburger - cheese, tomato, lettuce, onion. If you're looking for a good cheap meal next Wednesday night, Brazenhead is the place to be!
