Hanson Day Weekend Day 2

Hanson Day Weekend Day 2

Day 2 was a relaxing day for us. We had decided to skip out on the bowling tournament.  It’s been fun in the past, but it also takes up a lot of time….so we decided not to do it this year.

Instead, we went to brunch (were headed to Dilly Deli but found out they were remodeling) at McNellie’s.  A mimosa and eggs later and we explored Tulsa!

The weekend in Tulsa is a busy one- Mayfest, The Blue Dome Arts Festival, and Hanson Day.  We decided to hit the Blue Dome Arts Festival where there was music and tons of art vendors.  We bought jewelry, art, clothes, and saw tons of neat stuff.

We also took some time to visit the Hanson Art Gallery.  The paintings and photographs were great.  I’d love to own a painting someday- but they sell fast at Hanson Day.  Instead, I just bought a booklet featuring the artwork to keep.  They were also selling some photographs- but since they featured the band I didn’t think Tyler would want them up in the house. ha!

After that, we headed down to Brookside and hit up Antoinette’s Bakery (yum!), Ida Red for some fun stuff, and then had lunch at Hop Bunz. It was SO good.

After lunch, we made a pit stop by a liquor store to buy some of the hard root beer we had at Caz’s.  It was delish and we each went home with a 6 pack. 🙂

We got to Cain’s to wait in line for the state of the band talk.  We didn’t wait long, but somehow ended up with 3rd row seats.  We got lucky this weekend with great spots!



At the State of the Band, the guys talked about an upcoming tour in October (dates to be released in June!), the possibility of playing at Epcot in the fall (I hope so!), and other fun projects.  They also took questions from fans and handed out the Moey awards.  I hope I can go see them at Disney and on tour!


After the talk, we got in line for the concert.  While we waited, Tay and Kristin went to get coffee at Chimera.  We got in for the show and had a great spot center stage about 10 people or so back.

The show was GREAT. They played a ton of fan club songs, and even an unreleased song! The setlist is available here.

Some highlights of the show for me were Rock and Roll Razorblade, Scream and Be Free, and White Collar Crime.  We had a GREAT time.




After the concert, we walked down to Hey Mambo for some fancy pizza.  I’m so glad – we got there right in time as the rain started POURING.  Tons of fans were still waiting outside Cain’s for the afterparty…but we were safe and dry.  There was actually a tornado warning and sirens going off, but we found out we were west of the main storm.  Fans got SOAKED before the after party.  We decided to skip out on the afterparty since we had missed so much due to waiting out the rain.

But we saw on Twitter that it was a fun time (even if they did play Another One Bites the Dust 3 times! ha!)

We had a great day…and it marked my 10th Hanson concert – so that was super fun. 🙂

More on Day 3 tomorrow!
