Best Weekend Recap, ever.

 So, Saturday was one of the coolest experiences I've ever had.

Friday night we found out that Joel's company had a few extra tickets to attend their VIP Zac Brown Band event.

We arrived to the Hollywood Bowl at 4pm and were escorted to a pre-sound check happy hour. We had a beer and then 50 of us sat front row at the Bowl and watched Zac Brown prep for the concert. 

They didn't allow pictures, but it almost doesn't matter because it's something that I'll never forget. It was a very intimate experience and after they ran through a few songs, all of us - including the band - went back up to the cocktail reception.

Zac and the band went around and introduced themselves to every single person in the room. A young girl asked Zac how he learned to do something on the guitar and 2 minutes later, Zac grabbed his guitar and started to teach her.

We took pictures with the band - ours didn't turn out, but apparently a professional one was taken and is being sent to us. 

After the meet and greet we joined about 100 other people and sat down at their famous "Eat and Greet"
 

Zac Brown is a chef, and owns a restaurant in Atlanta. They travel with a kitchen and chef and host a private dinner before every one of their shows.

As if that wasn't enough, they served it to us too. 
 

The food was mind blowing. Southern comfort food at its finest. Every bite was spot on - and the dessert, a peanut butter bread pudding was easily one of the best desserts I've ever tasted. 
 

I will say too, Zac Brown and his entire band are some of the kindest people I've ever met. They were so appreciative, sincere and grateful - to US! They truly are stand up men and I am an even bigger fan after seeing firsthand how truly good they are.

After dinner, we had a box decked out with cheese, wine, crackers and chocolate. I mean....I was in full blown heaven.
 
The concert itself was BEYOND. They played every one of their most popular songs and kept the crowd on their feet for the entire 2 hours.

 

Words honestly do not do the night justice and I'm still pinching myself that I was able to attend.
