Always a fun event! I made plans to go this year with my friend Khanh. Figuring it was easy to Metro, I took a Lyft to the Ballston Metro since it was on the Silver line and I wouldn't have to transfer anywhere. We actually met up in the same Metro car at East Falls Church, so that was really convenient! We went downstairs to the food court and I had a bi bim bap from the Mixing Bowl, I love that place! She got a snack and we walked around for a few minutes before heading back upstairs. We were sitll a bit early, about 45 minutes till showtime, but we hung out on the lawn and played a bit of Boggle! Then the band came on and we got closer to the stage for a better look. Still the same songs as last year including Madonna's Like A Prayer, The Bangles Walk Like An Egyptian, Beastie Boys You Gotta Fight For Your Right To Party, Bon Jovi Livin On A Prayer, and of course closing out with Journey Don't Stop Believin. Unfortunately she had to leave early to catch the last bus home but I stayed through the first set up until their encore when they started playing ACDC and Guns N Roses. Beautiful weather and such a fun day! After the show I went over to Bloomingdales and finally used my $250 gift card! Wohoo!
