Y’all, let me just tell you that this weekend was perfect. For my birthday, DG got me tickets to The Lion King at DPAC in Durham. I am really feeling Durham these days so we made a night of it with dinner first. Saturday, we went on a walking tour of Historic Oakwood in Raleigh. And Sunday, my BFF was in town so we met for brunch and mimosas before she flew back to Tampa. I paused at one point and thought about how much more I’m enjoying my time now that I’m not being pulled in a gazillion different directions.
Friday night, we headed to Basan for dinner prior to the show. I tried Basan the first time for my birthday and was so impressed. It’s such a convenient restaurant for DPAC shows but also for Bulls games. Their sushi is delicious and if you’re there the night of a show, they give you 10% off your tab if you show your tickets.
It’s a short walk from Basan to the show, but we got to catch a pretty sunset over the American Tobacco Campus.
I’ve mentioned before on here, but I cry a lot during The Lion King. So, we got our picture taken prior to the show starting before my make up got smudged.
