Pies Descalzos

So this past Friday I went to go see Shakira at the United Center. My buddy T-bags, aka Tracy, came into town and we went together. We weren't going to go because neither of us had gotten tickets at this point but then we figured we couldn't miss it...

So we were gonna get tickets from a scalper but believe it or not we couldn't find any. So we went to the box office thinking we were just gonna get nose bleed $20 tickets. Well to our surprise the guy at the box office was like I have 2 tickets in the 3rd row off to the side! What! Yes we got awesome seats! It was a great show. The last time I saw Shakira was at the Aragon ballroom in 1997 when Pies Descalzos first broke in the US.

Anyhoo...she gave a great show.



She only did maybe 5 songs in English, and the rest of the show was Spanish language hits. She gave a great show, and I had a blast. Uhhhhhhh I had a blast having Tracy in town as well. I hope we didn't annoy Rob too much w/ our geeky banter. We ended up going out for margaritas afterwards and the day after we went for Chinese and walked the streets of Logan Square.

Unfortunately I have had a cold the last few days, and it is finally just going away but it's going to suck because I have 3 days to get a huge project done due Thursday. Ugh.

I gotta go. My boo boo cooked for me. Yummy :)

Even though I couldn't understand 75% of the show, I still had fun! (especially watching "Stripes", "Teen Scene" and the other cast of characters)
