Jim Gaffigan is a favorite comedian of ours, and a few weeks ago I decided to see if he was touring anywhere near us. Turns out he was performing in Denver on John's birthday weekend! I scored some great tickets and told John I was planning a surprise evening.
We got in the car Saturday night and I told him to drive north on the highway... and as we approached Denver, directed him to downtown. We parked and then I walked him over to H&M - a fabulously cheap, trendy clothing store that's new to Denver. John got some smokin hot clothes (both because of their price, and because of how good he looks in them). :) I'd like to point out that I was successful in making this stop strictly for John... I didn't look at/buy anything for myself!
|I know you can't really see him, but trust me - it's John|
Next up I took him to a great little restaurant that I had found on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives - family owned and operated, Sam's No. 3 diner. We both got yummy, greasy cheeseburgers... fries were my side, and a little crock of mac & cheese was John's. (How can you not love a place that offers a mac&cheese crock as a side??) And then John FORCED me to share a chocolate shake with him. [John: You wanna split a chocolate shake? Me: Yep.]
|I love this fella.|
Then it was time for the show! I walked us over to the theater... and luckily we didn't see any signage outside, so John still had no clue what we were doing.
|Heading into the theater - the surprise continues|
|At our seats... and now he finally knows we're seeing Jim Gaffigan|
The show was ABSOLUTELY hysterical - we loved it. He did a bunch of new material, and then closed with some of his prior stuff: bacon... hot pockets... McDonalds. (Have you heard him talk about the bonus fry at the bottom of your McDonalds bag? Oh.my.gosh. Kills me.)
Such a fun night celebrating my amazing hubby. Love you so much, babe!
