So my sister has always been inviting me to her shows and performances. Typically I commit, but when the time comes I usually freak out and bail. This time I decided to push through my social retardation (using my cousin as a crutch) and go see her new band playing at Rockwood Music Hall.
The show was at midnight...I can't remember the last time I stayed up that late for something. My cousin and I planned to meet up at 10:30 to grab something to eat at a nearby place that we like, then head over to the show and make an appearance.
My cousin texted me that she was going to take a nap at 7, so she could make it through the show without falling asleep. This was a smart move. I unfortunately decided to panic and go to the city early and start drinking. I don't know why I get nervous over these kinds of things.
Top Hops Beer Shop has some great beer.
Luckily I didn't freak out too much, and met my cousin at Cafe Katja for dinner (and another drink). After that we made our way over to the show.
I am so happy that I went. The show was great. My sister definitely knows how to sing. I wish I hadn't left my camera in Colorado, and I'd like to think I would have been able to get some good pictures, but I probably wouldn't have had the nerve to get up and take pictures. I got one, basically hiding behind my cousin. Ridiculous.
A better one from my cousin...someone with a spine...
After seeing the show, I immediately regretted not seeing the other two. I can definitely say that if there are more events that I'm invited to, I will push myself to go.

I ended up getting home around 3:30 in the morning, and slept until 8. I haven't slept that late in a long time.
Bloody mary and a breakfast burrito from Del Frisco's for brunch the next day hit the spot.
