A typical Sunday night for me involves last minute shopping and dinner out at a familiar favorite place like LaNopalera. Tonight LB surprised me with an event he TEASED me with last year. The “Happy Together” Tour.
With dinner first on the agenda, we left the house at around 6PM and headed downtown…
We checked into the Burrito Gallery. The Burrito Gallery is located at 21 East Adams Street in downtown Jacksonville. Although it is new to me, it has been around since 2005. There are also locations on Riverside Avenue and Beach Boulevard. LB and I enjoyed a tray of toasted tortilla chips with a hearty sampling of salsa, guacamole, and Queso (listed as Trio on the menu under Starters).
Then we walked about a block to the Florida Theatre for the Happy Together Tour 2017 concert. The Florida Theater is a beautiful building, the architectural details are amazing.The concert began with Ron Dante, one of the voices of the Archies who sang Sugar Sugar and a few other songs and commercial jingles like this one that he helped to make popular. After Ron, the Cowsills took the stage. The Cowsills are a family of singers that were the inspiration for the Partridge Family. I was not familiar with the name Cowsills, but definitely familiar with some of their songs. As a matter of fact, one of my favorites last night was “I Love the Flower Girl“. Even today I keep singing ‘I knew I knew I knew I knew’ in my head. Although I had not been familiar with most of the artists, I fully enjoyed the concert and every song that was performed.
And last but not least, Flo and Eddie of the Turtles began their set with “She’d Rather Be with Me” and wrapped up the event with the 1967 hit “Happy Together” with all of the artists coming to the stage to join in the song. Every song that was performed tonight made me feel happy!
