Hanson Day 2018: Day 1

Hanson Day 2018: Day 1

One of my favorite weekends of the year just happened- Hanson Day!  I’ve been a Hanson fan for 21 years- and for the last 10 years, they’ve treated their fan club members to a fun event and concert in Tulsa.

I’ve attended the last 6 years. This year, my friend Amber and her friend Emily all headed to Tulsa for a 3 day weekend.

We had the BEST weekend. Somehow, our timing was awesome all weekend and we only waited in ONE LINE all weekend (for the store- about 45 minutes).

Seriously. We got there and registered with like two people ahead of us.  Walked right into pictures with the band. Then we hit the store. It was a little warm while we waited, but we had a good time hanging out.

We made a stop by the mural wall.

We took a detour away from downtown to see the campus of the University of Tulsa. It was a BEAUTIFUL day and the campus was quiet without any students. It was gorgeous.

This is their library and giant lawn.

We got back downtown and parked for the Storytellers Concert.

I have deep love in my heart for Cain’s Ballroom.  Yes, it was the first place I ever saw Hanson back in 2004, but I’ve also seen other artists here (Pentatonix, Karmin) and had AMAZING nights here. It was a gorgeous Tulsa day.

In the past, they’ve done lectures for the Friday fan club event, but last year’s Storytellers talk turned into an acoustic show- so they went with that.  They played a TON of music, mostly from Middle of Nowhere or the Albertane tour (which happened 20 years ago). So much fun!

After the concert, we checked into the hotel, freshened up and headed to my FAVORITE for dinner: Caz’s Chowhouse.  Thankfully, it’s become one of Amber’s faves too- so she asked to go. YES.

Ya’ll.  I got a chicken fried steak and it was THE SIZE OF MY HEAD. And it was wonderful.  I didn’t finish it, but it was amazing.

 

After dinner, we went across the street to Glacier for chocolates!  Always a favorite.

We had a GREAT first day. More to come!
