Jack Johnson is amazing. So is Cafeteria Boston & Healthworks (while we’re at it…)

First week back from vacation in one word: busy.

Saturday night we had the Jack Johnson concert, in one word: amazing. ALO played (great band. Their song “Girl I Wanna Lay You Down” is one of my all time favorites) and Glove played as well, so it was a perfect line-up.

I’ve been a huge Jack Johnson fan forever, yet this was my first concert of his and it was just so damn good. He is one of the bests live performers I’ve ever seen. We started our evening out with some sandwiches, chips and beers. :)

ALO

Glove

Secondly, you all know how much I love a good deal. And if you read my guest post over at the Foodies at Work you probably know that I love a delicious burger even more {there’s just nothing more satisfying than a good burger.} Last night I found a fabulous combo of the two; a good deal and a delicious burger. Now, you know I was in heaven, right?!

I met Nicole (my work best friend from my last job) for dinner at Cafeteria Boston on Newbury Street. They have perfect outdoor seating, but it was raining on and off so we sat inside at the bar. We started off with some sangria which was so good, very refreshing. Neither of us knew if we wanted red sangria or white sangria, so the bartender (I am a jerk and am forgetting his name which I’m sorry for because he was so friendly and we really liked him!) let us taste a little of each to help us decide. Ultimately, I chose the white (although they were both very nice) and Nicole chose the red.

Mmmm sangria

Lucky for us, they had $5 burger special! You know I had me some of that. It.was.perfection. The burger was cooked just the way I like it – it wasn’t too small, wasn’t too big or overwhelming, and it had the special Cafeteria sauce on top which was a tasty little surprise. It was honestly so good (and I was insanely hungry) I wanted to order another burger but I had to control myself/didn’t want to embarrass myself…

We also ordered a side of Parmesan fries which was big enough to split between the both of us (I mean I could have finished a whole side by myself, but we were being good.) All their dishes are created using organic grass-fed beef and lamb along with local, organic produce – you gotta love/appreciate that.

I’d like to send a HUGE thank you out to Demetri from Cafeteria, he was so great to us! I’m definitely going back!

Tomorrow I’m hosting a dinner party for Christine’s birthday (I missed it while I was in Ireland) so I’m really pumped about it. Hopefully all goes well – more details to come! I can’t wait for the weekend. You?

And last but not least…I hope you took advantage of Healthworks Free Workout Day today – it’s the best gym ever! And on Friday Healthworks Back Bay is hosting a Les Mills launch for Body Jam and Body Pump, you should check it out. They’ll have prizes from Redbones and City Sports as well as refreshments from the Healthworks cafe!

Jack Johnson Here I Come

So, today is the day. I am a HUGE Jack Johnson fan, I have been for years now. I own every album and whenever I listen to his music it’s a guarantee to instantly make me happy. JJ puts out some great feel good, make you smile, laid-back, relaxing music and I can’t get enough of it.

The thing is… I’ve never seen him in concert! Never. So lame. I “studied abroad” in Hawaii and figured I would absolutely, 100% get to see him play live there, but that was a no go. However, I did get to see him live, just not playing a show. My friend Jen and I (our last week there) met him at the Pearl Jam/U2 concert. It was amazing – we were on the will call line waiting for our tickets when BAM! Jack Johnson walked by us. Since he didn’t come over to say hi (so rude) I decided we should go over and say hi. He was extremely nice and even took a picture with us!

Needless to say, even though I didn’t get to see him play live in Hawaii, I was pretty happy with the fact that I met him, shook his hand and took a picture with him (he put his hand on my lower back while taking the picture, no big deal…)

Me, Jack and Jen!

So tonight is the night I finally get to see him play live! I am more than pumped. To top it all off, glove and ALO are playing as well – two more great performers. :)

Well, we have our sandwiches, snacks and beers all set – Colin and I are off to the show! Have a great Saturday night and I’ll have plenty of wedding posts coming at you this week. Simply put, it was beyond amazing! xo
