How to Rock and Roll your way into Greek Easter

Wednesday, April 18, 2012

It's Wednesday and I'm about to post about my weekend, ya think I'm a little behind? I'd say so.

I'm going to attempt to make this brief but be sure to note that the length of this post doesn't properly correlate with all the fun that was had.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2012 Induction Ceremony at Cleveland's Public Hall will most likely be the highlight of my year, and this isn't hyperbole, you guys. It really was. I didn't have the best seats but it didn't matter, I was in the room for the speeches, the music was heard and absorbed into my core - hell, I was breathing the same air as Carole King.  I was a happy woman.

My friends Becky, Tim, timmybennett and KJ all joined CK and I at my house for some concert pre-gaming around 5pm - little did we know that we wouldn't be walking out from the show until after 1:45am. Good thing we have some friends in high places that let us into The Greenhouse Tavern for an ultra rock and roll late night - oh so fitting and awesome.

The view from our seats, it wasn't close but the acoustics were awesome and we dead center. I can't wait to watch it up close and personal though when it airs on HBO in May
Becky, CK, some new friends who traveled all the way from the UK for the ceremony and Tim at Greenhouse late night + a couple of random dudes dress up as the Beastie Boys a la Sabotage + Becky and Tim looking swanky as ever
My head not hitting my pillow at 4am wasn't going to make it for an easy Sunday, especially an easy Easter Sunday but I'd do it all over again. Praise goes going to the entire Rock Hall staff for all their hard work, long hours and sacrifices - it was because of them that we got to experience an amazing week of events. Can't wait to do it all over again in three years when the ceremony is back in Cleveland.

As previously mentioned, Sunday was a bit rough but not for too long because it was Easter! Greek Easter in fact which meant the little one, CK and I headed down to Canton to celebrate with my big fat Greek family.

Fun times were had by all, quality family fun time was had, we ate tons of delicious food, the kids big and small enjoyed their Easter egg toy hunt thanks to Thea Joanna and we laughed, A LOT.

My family is one of the best things I have going for me - this is a fact.

Things that I were most excited about on GrEaster were on the left, the giant dinner table and the giant plate of lamb. Things that the kids were most excited about on GrEaster was the giant toy hunt in Thea Joanna and Uncle David's backyard.

My beautiful family: Suzanne, Criseyda, Cara, Cathi and Jenna + the always hilarious and adorable little one
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how to Rock and Roll your way into Greek Easter - I'd say it was a success.

Happy Wednesday, kids!

  9. They decided to fight back by creating a new religion, one that would claim to be the fulfillment of the Hebrew "Old Testament," yet would bring back the pagan lies in a new disguise.
