Last Saturday night we saw Jason Isbell and Amanda Shires perform at the Capital City Amphitheater in Tallahassee. We started at The Southern Public House for drinks and appetizers before the show. The food was great and I enjoyed the atmosphere. Outdoor seating was full so we sat inside at the bar which worked out well because we were able to watch the end of the Masters. From there, we
hiked walked to the amphitheater. My friend told me it was not far but I was wearing new clogs so it felt like five miles.
The Capital City Amphitheater is located at Cascades Park, a historic Florida landmark. It is a beautiful spot. The sun was setting as Amanda Shires opened the show with her beautiful voice and violin. I walked down from our seats to get a shot of her on stage. I could not believe how close we could get!
The show was amazing. I know that word is overused BUT he played so many great songs and almost every one I wanted to hear. During the encore, Jason and Amanda covered Merle Haggard's song "Sing Me Back Home" as a tribute to the legend.
After the show we walked up to The Edison. The restaurant is housed in the historic City Electric Building and has been renovated to perfection. We had a delicious bottle of wine before our epic Uber ride back to Southwood. Our driver sang and danced at the top of her lungs the whole way home from Billy Joel's "Uptown Girl" to Eddie Money's "Two Tickets to Paradise". I could not even breathe I was laughing so hard.
On the way home from Tallahassee, we stopped in Santa Rosa Beach to pick up our new puppy. We were so excited and the kids asked me every 5 minutes, "How much longer to Pearl?" It has been a crazy week trying to crate train and do all the other things that a new puppy requires. She slept all night last night so I am hoping that happens again tonight!
