GAFFIGAN, BABY!!!

We are huge fans of comedian Jim Gaffigan. We saw his stand-up show live in August 2008 with Nichole and Ben (Bischmann) and had a blast. Before we went to the show we went to McCormick and Schmick in Oakbrook (which was amazing) and then up to Waukegan to the Milwaukee theater. We had so much fun that when we heard he was coming back to the area, we got tickets right away. This time we went with Jeff (Cozzo) and his girlfriend Deana. We had such a good time. Gaffigan did some of his old stuff and mixed in quite a bit of new. Afterward, we met up with a friend of Joe's, Megan, whose fiance is an agent or on Gaffigan's staff. So, we were able to score two backstage passes to meet the man himself. Awesome! And after a quick pitstop at the Renissance Hotel for a drink, we went to a sushi restaurant for some sushi and wine. Great night! WONDERFUL weekend!!!
