Adventures in Happiness: Harry ♥

Harry Connick, Jr is my favorite. I love everything about him. I love the way he looks. I love the way he sounds. I love his sense of humor. I love his musicianship and talent.


If Harry Connick, Jr. performs within a 100 mile radius, I try to be there.

Last night, my best friend and I treated each other to yet another Harry concert. (Happy BirthdaChrismaKwanzakkah, Kristin!) The concert was held at Wente Vineyards in Livermore. The venue was breathtakingly beautiful. The grounds were absolutely lovely. Upon finding our seats, we decided to partake in the local libation, ordering a bottle of  their 2008 Riva Ranch Chardonnay. {Mmmm...... tasty adult beverages.} Our ticket price included a buffet dinner of  grand proportions; including a variety of delectable choices (of which my favorite was of course some ultra-tasty mashed potatoes!) We had wonderful table companions, none of whom who had ever seen Harry before, so it was particularly exciting to tell them of everything they were in for! Everyone enjoyed discussing our celebratory reasons for attending the concert, while we savored a mouth-watering dessert (included in the meal!)

As if the meal itself was not a wonderfully fabulous experience, the concert was.... it was.... my happy place. The acoustics were outstanding. I could hear every instrument, beautifully orchestrated and mixed for the ultimate listening experience. And, of course, there was Harry. *happy contented sigh* Harry. He is amazing. Every single time I go to see him, the show is better than the last. He played all of my favorite songs, in new and exciting arrangements that only made the song better and more enjoyable than the original recording. ( I only wish I could have a recording f last night's version of "It Had to Be You." *swoon*) I just.... I can't.... words cannot describe. Seriously, it was that good.

Oh, Harry! I took photos of you with the camera I was not supposed to have. 
Did I mention he has a super-HOT alto sax player? Holy cow. 

I was so excited to be so close! I could not hold the camera still. Sorry! 
Yeah! That's Harry's bum! He's shakin' it! (Jill is one lucky woman!)
