This past weekend, those who attended Blissdom had the opportunity to attend a Girls Night Out, featuring a private concert for Chris Mann and Amber Riley.  {You may recognize Chris Mann, who was a finalist on The Voice, and Amber Riley (aka Mercedes), from the tv show Glee.}  The Spazmatics would play after the club opened to the public.

It was a beautiful day, but with normal Texas weather, the temperature dropped from the high 70’s to the low 50’s Friday night.  That didn’t stop many from bundling up and heading out to The Glass Cactus, located just a minute away from the Gaylord Texan.

We arrived at The Glass Cactus and were greeted with drinks (whoo hoo for the open bar!) and a buffet for dinner, including hand carved roast, buffalo chicken bites and a “build your macaroni” spread.  There were several dessert options, but I stopped looking and remember nothing other than the pecan pie!  It was delicious!

With an hour to the start of the concert, we had time to catch up and bond with local and non-local friends.

The concert started and if that isn’t exciting enough, my Dallas friends and I were front and center…. which made the entire experience even more amazing!   There were twitter, instagram and facebook updates galore!  (What do you expect with hundreds of bloggers in one room?)  During the concert, for every tweet using the hashtag #childhunger, five meals were donated by ConAgra Foods!  *Even better when Chris Mann tweeted a picture of the audience.  (yes, that’s me on the front row!)  And when Justin Bieber tweeted the hashtag, too….*  The power of one hashtag is spectacular!

Here are a few pictures from the event.  (More may be to come, as we took group pictures which are not yet posted.)

  1. Man. The 80’s were weird. 😉 Glad you had fun at Blissdom – and I totally missed that pie. Someone stole my plate and cleared it away before I got to the brisket, too. I survived most of the weekend on protein bars and GoGoSqueez. 😉
