Most of March has had me stressed out and anxiety-ridden. Not knowing where you’ll land next in your career is scary, especially when you have a mortgage to pay and Boo Radley is too busy sleeping to get a job.
With that being said, a few weekends ago I took some time to push my worry/ stress aside for an evening of fun. + laughter. My friend and I were BEYOND excited to see Chris D’Elia at Goodnights Raleigh. But first things, first… dinner at Cantina 18! Sangria + queso is ALWAYS a good idea.
Upon arriving to Goodnights, it was clear the show was sold-out and most of the people in line were college kids. I was basically right about my theory. When I got to the bathroom the first thing I saw was some girl’s ID, credit card + 2 airplane bottles. #blessherheart. Luckily for her she was still outside the bathroom when I exited and basically jumped me when I returned her belongings. She also begged me to take a shot from the airplane bottle. After declining her requests, I knew she wouldn’t let it go so down the hatchet it went. The funny part of it all was that she was 23… I’m 35. I’m pretty sure she thought we were the same age.
I got back just in time for the opening act, Michael Lenoci. He was a pretty funny dude, so no complaints here.
No spoilers here, but Chris D’Elia was H-I-L-arious! I haven’t laughed that much in quite awhile (especially since my job was recently eliminated). I had never seen Chris D’Elia’s stand-up before, but his Vine videos (back when Vine was relevant) and Instagram posts made me laugh. When it was announced he was coming to Raleigh, it was a given that we HAD to go see him. We might have splurged on VIP tickets and got to meet him.
P.S. he’s a tall MF!
If you want to laugh your face off, go see him if he’s performing in your city. In the meantime, I’ve got to find myself a job.
