We had a terrific night last night! We all met at Maumee Bay Brewing Company downtown Toledo and had some great food! Maryellen was coming off of working 2 straight 12 hour nights, but she was awake and in a good mood! Leslie brought her new bf, Tom, who was really nice. We had a couple beers while there and then headed over to the zoo.

The amphitheater was packed. A New Orleans guitar player opened up by playing a few songs and then Harry and his band came out. The man is just an incredible entertainer. His voice was incredible, his rapport with the crowd was genuine and hillarious. He told some stories about how they got there early and toured the zoo first. He got hugs from an elephant, kisses from the same and an orangutan painted him a picture (Which he had retreived from the bus and passed around the audience). He even changed a few lyrics to mention Louie, the zoo’s baby elephant.

The people watching was top-notch, the company was great. The band was HOT and Harry was cool…it was just a great night of music and friends!! If you have the opportunity to see Harry Connick, Jr this tour, do it…you won’t be disappointed.
