Empty Out Your Wallet

We’ve divided this week into the old, the in-between, and the young because we felt that the myriad of choices out there this weekend needed some sort of random pronouncement that really means nothing at all. Sorry ‘bout that, we may have just watched too much CSPAN yesterday and lapsed into nothing speak.

The Old

2007_04_mika.jpgWe already mentioned the Amy Winehouse venue change that opens up more tickets. Those go on sale at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday. Genesis added another date to their old guy tour. This one is October 4 and the presale is going on now, or take a chance and buy them Monday at 10:00 a.m.

All those dates in June made us a little excited about the beach, booze, and general summer fun. Enjoy Saturday’s 70 degree weather, we know we will be outside grilling and drinking! We already have the pork chops for the grill and a case of Shiner on ice.
