Maroon 5 at Verizon Center

Last night Jeff, Katie, Lauren and I went to the Maroon 5 concert at the Verizon Center. A concert that was probably 4 to 1 girls to guys with all guys there either on dates, engaged, married, or the fathers of 13 year olds.

Looking around the audience, it was definitely a mixed crowd of 30 somethings out on girls night out, parents with their junior high kids, young couples, old couples, you name it. While the music was great, the lines for drinks were ridiculous with one line taking Jeff and I a good 25 minutes for a very strong mixed drink.

Since I forgot my camera last night, I had to borrow this photo from "MeetJustin" on Flickr, but it's a pretty good representation of what we saw from our seats in Section 102.

Besides a great show, the other highlight of the evening was dinner at Zengo a Latin-Asian fusion restaurant next door to the Verizon Center. While the food was a little pricey, it was EXTREMELY tasty and I definitely recommend it to anyone who is down in that part of town looking for something new.

All in all, a great night... though a very late night...
