Another Norah Jones Concert!

Kevin and I had extra tickets to the Norah Jones concert so we invited our friends Tom & Victoria to the show. As part of the deal, they needed to take us out for dinner before the show. We chose b: A Bolton Hill Bistro as our dinner location. We'd been there before but it was a first for Tom & Victoria. Tuesdays are half price wine bottles and we decided to have two! We had a great dinner there with a cheese plate appetizer, entrees and yummy dessert! Off to the show at the Lyric Opera House, our first concert there. This location is nice and the sound was pretty incredible inside. We had great seats! Center state, first row in the upper balcony. The crowd was definitely older, like much older. Which meant that during the show it was extremely quite and a polite applause was given at the end of each song. And then it would get really quiet before the start of the next song. Really strange. But, show was good and the new band is pretty talented.

Here is the set list:

1. I Wouldn't Need You
2. Tell Your Mama
3. Light as a Feather
4. Chasing Pirates
5. Even Though
6. It's Gonna Be
7. Broken
8. Waiting
9. Sunrise
10. You've Ruined Me
11. Back to Manhattan
12. Sinkin' Soon
13. Bull Rider (Rodney Crowell cover)
14. Man of the Hour
15. Don't Know Why
16. Young Blood
17. Stuck
18. Come Away With Me
19. Strangers

Philadelphia - Day 4 & Day 5

Day 4 in Philly was a Monday morning. We made no rush of leaving the hotel so we slowly made our way to Reading Terminal Market to do some shopping and to EAT! This market is very similar to the Lexington, Broadway and Cross Street Markets in Baltimore, but this was much nicer and cleaner! Since we were a bit early for lunch we strolled through the isles to check out all the food offerings. I got sidetracked along the way by a tea shop and bought a bit of tea to bring home. Some of the Amish/Mennonite shops were not open on Monday so we did miss out on the infamous pretzel place. However, we did get to eat at DiNic's. We shared a pulled pork sandwich with peppers and broccolini. It was delicious! Still hungry we continued our lunch at Hershel's East Side Deli with a hot pastrami sandwich on pumpernickel and a kosher hot dog with kraut. After all this we were stuffed! Since the weather was nice, we decided to walk off lunch around downtown, walking through a few more neighborhoods before taking it easy the rest of the afternoon at a coffee shop. Reading, drinking tea, relaxing. We spoiled ourselves with dinner at Zento. I got to try toro (tuna belly) for the first time! Every time we've tried to order it, it's always unavailable. So yes, I had my first taste of $10/piece sushi. Ridiculous in both price and flavor. It was our last night in Philly so we splurged a little. After a delicious dinner, we had a few beers at the bar next door, Eulogy. It's mostly a Belgian beer bar and restaurant but we ordered from the huge beer list they had. We weren't a huge fan of this place since the beers were pretty expensive, but the selection was impressive.
Day 5 in Philly was spent with both of us working in the morning, followed by a nice lunch at Farmicia. After lunch, we were off to the train station for our ride back home. Overall, we had a wonderful time in Philly and can't wait to get back!
