Monster Mash-Jam

When living in a small town you should do as the locals do.  When Shayne found out that Monster Jam was coming to Vancouver we knew that a date-night was in order. Shayne was in charge of buying the tickets and I got us a hotel room at The Georgian Court. We were excited for our 2nd Monster Jam experienced for a 2nd year in a row. Yes, we went last year….

The Georgian Court was really nice and gave us a welcome treat and tuend our bed down at bedtime. However, they got my gender confused:

Mister Blair?

Well, after we were all checked in we decided to head out for dinner to Abigail’s Party. Due to not living in Vancouver anymore, I was unaware that is it Dine Out Vancouver and at 5:30pm the whole restaurant was reserved and we were unable to use our $100 gift card. So, we sauntered over to Hapa Izakaya  in Kits for Hapa Hour. This is recommended to all. Affordable and yummy Japanese cuisine.

We finished our meal and taxied to Monster Jam. Our tickets, purchased from Ticketmaster, were in the  “Club Seating” area. The seats here are in the middle of the arena, cushioned and have a bar/lounge area. Due to Ticketmaster’s failure at sending us the right tickets, Shayne and I did NOT have seats together. Date night fail. Luckliy there was the lounge and we watched the show from bar. Too bad these were “expensive” tickets.

Seat Fail. Ticketmaster Fail.

Seat Fail. Ticketmaster Fail.

The trucks were loud and the coolers were expensive.  I’m talking $8.50 per cooler expensive….we had 3 each which came to $1000!  After watching crashing and speeding and crashing and wheelie popping, the show came to an end with Grave Digger winning.

Here is 5 minutes of Grave Digger:

So, Monster Jam is now a tradition and I suggest everyone go. It’s cheap family fun, minus the booze and always double check your seats, even if you have a responsible partner.

To follow my skiing journey, check back every Wednesday (or sometimes Thursday) and read about my learning adventure. It is okay  to learn to ski at any age. If I can do it, so can you! Please share your skiing tips and comments below. Cheers!
