Last weekend I went to see Florence and the Machine in concert. It all went down in Atlantic City, NJ at the Borgata. It was my first time seeing a show there and I was really impressed. The acoustics were great and the standing room made for an intimate experience.
My friend Chelsea’s family has a beautiful house in Ocean City where we stayed the night. On our way down Saturday, we stopped in center city Philadelphia to enjoy the gorgeous weather. After a nice stroll and yummy food we were Jersey bound, arriving just in time for happy hour margaritas on the deck.
When we arrived in Atlantic City later that evening the sun was setting, making for a great photo.
Then it was time for the concert. After a less than stellar opening act, Florence came out in a black cape with metallic detailing on the shoulder pads. As she twirled, jumped and belted her hits, we tried to find the best place to enjoy the show (the beauty of standing room). Our final choice was right up front and to the side of the stage. Except for a drunk girl who ran like a maniac through the crowd spilling beer all over us, our “seats” rocked; room to dance and fully enjoy Florence!
We couldn’t leave the casino without testing our gambling luck. It’s a good thing that luck was on our side ($7 worth of luck) because the cabs out of AC are a bit pricey. We managed to barter it down a bit but those drivers really ask a lot for the trip home.
All in all a great weekend activity. Great music, venue and time with friends.
