Yesterday I had the unbelievable luck of receiving two free tickets to see Regina Spektor. Being so last-minute I couldn’t get a babysitter, so I decided to take my older daughter to see the captivating Russian chanteuse. All I can say is wow. WOW. Regina is spectacular; her music virtually matchless, like a rare champagne popping in your ears. Her level of talent is awe inspiring, and yet she manages to come across as a very mischievous, insanely witty friend. Maddie really enjoyed the experience as well. We both liked the opening act, Only Son, and we had a fun time just hanging out sharing a bag of twizzlers (which taste surprisingly good with beer). A young woman stopped me in the ladies room as we were leaving and commended me for bringing my daughter. I laughed and thanked her. A sweet ending to a very memorable evening.
