In celebration of a friend's birthday, we headed up to Kalamazoo, MI for a concert.
The band is called NeedtoBreathe, and we've been fans of theirs for a couple years, so we were very excited to go along.
First thing we did was head to Kalamazoo Beer Exchange for food and drinks.
The boys in the group consider themselves to be "beer aficionados," so this place was right up their alley. The restaurant had tons of different beers to choose from, and it was run like the stock exchange: the cost of each particular beer changed according to how many were being sold at the time.
The mac and cheese was not my favorite. I should've known that Gouda is not a good cheese to put into macaroni. Ty enjoyed his burger though. And I got to enjoy the after-effects of that burger whenever he burped during the concert. I swear that burger stuck with him much longer than it should have.
We had a good time at the restaurant and stayed for several hours.
Then after a quick walk through downtown Kalamazoo, we headed over to the theater for the concert.
The concert was amazing, and the entire show (including opening acts) was about 4 hours long. We had such a good time! It was a great way to celebrate a good friend's birthday.
