Following our performance at Vandercook School of Music, we headed downtown for dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe. The Hard Rock is in downtown Chicago (next to the Rock and Roll McDonalds that we will be visiting on another day!), and it is most definitely a (please excuse the pun) rockin place. They had a drum set on top of the bar, which was very cool.
Following dinner, we headed off to see Blue Man Group, which was very cool. Our group was seated in the first four rows of the theatre! This meant that we got sprayed with paint, what we think was mashed up banana, and all other manner of thing, as well as lots of attention from the Blue Men. You can see us below in our oh so glamorous ponchos. It really was the experience of a lifetime - it was a small venue (seating perhaps 300 people), so it was a much different, more personal type of show than what many of us who had seen Blue Man Group before had experienced. The consensus was most definitely that we had a great time - even if it meant that we got back late, and had a parade to wake up for on Saturday (and so perhaps didn't get quite as much sleep as we should...).
