Last Tuesday after work, Tessa and I went to Bon Secours Wellness Arena for the final tour of Motley Crue with Alice Cooper. After Alice's set, we got to go backstage and meet the man himself.
After meeting Alice, we went back to our seats and caught part of Motley Crue's set including the drum solo which Tommy Lee did on his new drum roller coaster.
Friday after work, we had Tessa's best friend, Krista and her husband, Brandon meet us at our house to head down to Atlanta for Cirque du Soleil and Netherworld. We got up rather early Saturday morning and went shopping down in Atlantic Station. We got there before any of the shops opened so we went and got some drinks at Starbucks. I had them make me a Butterbeer Frappuccino from the Starbucks secret menu which, of course, is inspired by the fictional beverage from the Harry Potter books and films.
After shopping, we grabbed some lunch at the Varsity before making our way back to the hotel to get ready for the 4:30 performance of Cirque du Soleil's show, Amaluna.
The show was quite good although the girls are more into that sort of thing than I am. However, there were some performances that were fascinating like the woman who built this boatlike skeletal structure while balancing it and not allowing it to touch the ground at any time. Had to be seen to be believed.
After Cirque, the one and only Jesse James Dupree invited us out to a swanky joint for a fancy dinner. That's right, boys and girls, I wined and dined with the chainsaw-wielding Jackyl frontman! And just days after meeting Alice Cooper!
After dinner, we made our way out to Netherworld Haunted House and met up with my best friend, Kenny. The line was insane so we all decided to pay extra and get the speed pass and bypass the crazy ass lines!
After the long walk back to my car, we were beat so we went back to the hotel and quickly passed out.
On Sunday, we checked out and made our way to the Mall of Georgia for some more shopping before making our way home. It was a fun trip but I'm ready for a weekend at home!
