One week ago today was my birthday and I spent the day on my own…
When last we met I had caught you up to Saturday afternoon. Here comes the story of Saturday night – and the initial reason for this entire trip: we all went to Stone Mountain Arts Center to see Kathy Mattea. Woot!
You know I’m a sucker for twinkle lights and this place had tons. And so much charm, too. We got there early and settled in with drinks to wait for the restaurant to open.
We wound up with a fabulous table right in front of the stage – which happens to be decorated with more twinkle lights and candles.
The rest of the restaurant is just as beautiful and the service was terrific – and fast!
I love this pint glass, there was definitely a tree theme going on all night.
And the food was wonderful. Kim and I had mac and cheese that was out of this world. Ken had an incredible looking salad and Dale had spaghetti and meatballs. All of our meals came with wonderful corn bread. And there was plenty of beer and wine, too.
Of course the highlight of the night was seeing Kathy Mattea and, as I said, the show was wonderful. She did all of our favorites and when she asked for requests from the audience Dale immediately shouted out Green Rolling Hills – and she did it, much to his delight.
We chatted with her afterwards and Dale posed for his photo with her as he always does. She’s kind and funny and beautiful and talented and I’m so glad we got to experience her music in this incredible venue with our dear friends.
Okay, one more post and then we’ll wrap this thing up – but you’ll have to wait until next week!
