# 34 Go see a concert

#34 on my list of 36 things to do when I am 36 was to go to a concert (and the ones I coordinate for my work not counting.)

Gillian Welch at the Capital Theater in Olympia. Swooon! It’s a smaller theater and after drinks and dinner got into line about 1/2 hour before they opened the doors. 4th row – awesome show!

Reuben had his phone, but wouldn’t break the rules and sneak a photo when she was singing. So the pic below is at intermission of the microphones on stage.

#3 Subscribe to a CSA

#3 on my 36 things to do when I am 36…subscribe to Community Supported Agriculture program.  Through the lovely Terra Organics I can support their local farm and receive produce that is grown here  – within 15 miles of my house.  It also has the convenience of home delivery (which is a must in our crazy busy lives) and being able to select additional items for purchase that are grown out of area.    It’s only been a week, but so far I LOVE.

It was delivered 3 days ago, but already we’ve eaten almost everything except the beets and have a little  parsley left.

They are having an ‘open farm day’ next weekend that I’m really looking forward too.  During the ‘open farm’ they open up the strawberry patches for u-pick.  yum!

#36 Roller Derby!

On my 36 things to do when i am 36 – i included attending a roller derby. Something I’ve wanted to do for a while but never quite gotten around to it.

So a few weeks ago we headed out. It was a night of intrigue, drama and good outfits! Dockyard Derby Dames had the championship bout and it was awesome. Having never been before I was not quite sure what to expect – but knew to get there early as it was open seating in one of the old warehouse buildings along the Tacoma waterfront.

One whole side was roped off as part of the beer garden – the other side “family friendly” but none under 13 allowed ringside. We kept ourselves busy with 3-Dollar Rolling Rock Tall Boys.

At one point the sun was streaming in through the top windows illuminating all of the rafters.

We stayed for the Femme Fiana and Marauding Mollys bout, but left 1/2 way through the Trampires and Hellbound Homewreckers.

I loved it and will be back to cheer those tough ass ladies on!
