The Hollywood Bowl

            Last night Joel and I went on what felt like our first official date since we've been engaged - and let's just say it did not disappoint.

We got tickets in May for Ben Harper at the Hollywood Bowl as everyone told us a concert at the Bowl was a must.

Parking was a little annoying but once we took our seats, we realized what everyone had been talking about.
The bowl is nestled into the Hollywood Hills with a cool view of the Hollywood sign and a spectacular spot to watch the sunset. What I loved most about the venue is that you can picnic. It's bench style seating, so it's a little awkward, but you can bring your own wine, glasses, and food galore. Dinner and a show!

Last night was a leased event, so no outside alcohol was allowed, but we were able to bring a smorgasbord of cheese, prosciutto, bread, and swedish fish.

We cheersed over Coors Light and watched Ben Harper play an unbelievable set.

My night at the Hollywood Bowl has moved it's way up to the top spot for "Favorite Things I've Done in California" - and if you are ever in Los Angeles during the summer, no matter who is performing - Go. You will not regret it.


  1. You look adorable! The Hollywood Bowl is amazing, couldn't agree with you more!

  2. So fun!

    And it's official. I need some white pants. Love them on you!

  3. Ooooh that looks like the perfect summer night! Love that you can bring in some picnic items, and the setting is gorgeous. Perfect outfit on you for the night!

  4. First of all, you look crazy gorgeous!!! Love love love your outfit. And SO JEALOUS it's cool enough to wear that without dying of heat stroke.

    And what a fun venue... I think I need to come visit, I don't have family in SoCal anymore, boo hiss!

  5. You had me at BYOW! I'm SO jealous that you got to see Ben Harper...in the summer...at such a beautiful location, which is my way of saying it looks like fun.

    P.S. That outfit is amazing and you look FABULOUS.
