Yesterday was my birthday. 12/12/12 = 32 for me. My uterus has been closed for business, but if I ever did have another kid, I would totally name him Buddy.
For the most part, my birthday was just another day. Work, grocery store, laundry… same ‘ol same ‘ol. Last night though, I got a little treat courtesy of Mills Entertainment Group. My sister and I headed into Charlotte to see Buddy Valastro (The Cake Boss) at Buddy On Tour.
I really didn’t know what to expect, but it was a ton of fun! It was far more interactive than I had assumed it would be and there were quite a few audience members that got to participate during different parts of the hour and a half long show. Buddy incorporated challenges/contest into the show as a way to win the cakes and cupcakes he decorated while on stage. One of the first contests was a hula hooping competition… Check out these hoopers:
I’m crazy jealous of their skills. Sadly, I’ve never been able to hula hoop.
I was surprised at home many men and children were in the crowd, and as you can clearly see, the children weren’t left out of the fun. A lot of times at events like this, if you aren’t on the floor near the front, you can feel left out – but not at this show. Buddy did a great job of making the entire audience feel included, even the families in the upper level.
My favorite of all of the contests though had to be the one he saved just for the dads. They had no idea what they were signing up for, and then this happened… (You’re going to want to make this one full screen. Trust me.)
I think everyone in the audience nearly died of laughter. Seriously the funniest thing I’ve seen in a long time.
Guys, if you get the chance to head out and see Buddy on Tour, it’s well worth the price of tickets. I promise. You will laugh so hard you’ll nearly cry.
