Saturday marked my seventh straight year going to see the Trans-Siberian Orchestra here in Greenville at what is now known as the Bon Secour Wellness Arena. This year I managed to score 3 pairs of tickets so Tessa and I were able to take two couples who have never experienced the wonder that is TSO! Joining us this year was Rob and Michele Young who own Borderlands Comics and Games as well as my old friend and former bandmate C.C. and his wife Jill.
Since we were going to the afternoon performance, we all met up at Borderlands around 2 pm so at least one couple could carpool with us. The show, as always, was absolutely amazing and I got to enjoy being able to share the experience with not just two newbies but four all of whom loved it!
After the show, I hit the merch table and picked up a tour tee and a TSO beanie! C.C. and Jill had to head back to Seneca while the rest of us grabbed some dinner at Grill Marks downtown. I had the amazing burger of the week, the Sawmill Burger!
After dinner, we roamed around downtown hitting places like Mast General Store and Poppington's Gourmet Popcorn. Tessa grabbed her a sweater blanket and a mug from Mast and we got some sea salt and dark chocolate popcorn from Poppington's - the latter of which is no longer accounted for! Oh well, it's not like we're going to be losing any weight this week with Thanksgiving in two days!
