High Noon Final Showdown

Friday Night

My sister and I bought tickets for the show weeks in advance.  We've been to enough shows at many venues that we know that if you're not there early enough all the tables will be taken and then you'll be stuck either at a crappy table or standing somewhere in the background with a crappy view.

So we had decided that we would head over there early to have supper and then just stick around to save a table and let everyone else join us later.  We got there between 6 and 6:30, ordered the special of the day, The High Noon Burger, which was just a plain bacon cheeseburger.  It was the most juicy burger!  Definitely in the top 5 of all Melt-In-Your-Mouth burgers. 

The tables are teeny and they are always grouped together so the spot we sat down at had 2 tables.  By 7:30 all the tables were taken and the show didn't even start 'til 9:30.  We only needed one to fit the 4 of us, but we were going to hang onto it 'til the last minute and then give some lucky strangers who would just happen to walk in grab it instead of having to stand in the background. 

A pair of women in their 30's tapped on my shoulder to see if "our" table was open.  We sat yep and they moved in.  They kept talking to us, so we told them to bring back the table in to a cluster.   They spent the whole night talking and dancing with us.  They were a hoot!  Words can not describe how crazy they were and how much beer they drank.  I'm just thankful they had a sober cab coming, because neither one of them were fit to drive.

It just so happened that one of the ladies was a dental assistant so we had more than enough in common to talk about.  And she also just happened to work at the dental office that my parents go to.  What a small world.

The only thing I can say was I had a blast.  It was the perfect way to enjoy my last night with High Noon.  I will miss them because nobody can ever replace them.  If they ever have a reunion show, you can bet that I'll be there.

Sounds like you had a great time! I can't believe that High Noon is done. I always liked them.

I saw High Noon once with Gina and they were a ton of fun - high energy, put on a good show. It's a shame they are done, hopefully they'll do a reunion someday!
