A cool crisp evening on the lawn of Riverbend listening to Idina Menzel and the Cincinnati Pops. Susan has planned several Cincinnati events for the family to enjoy this summer. So we packed a picnic and our blankets and enjoyed the music last night.
Lawn tickets were $25 per adult with children free (compliments of Toyota). Add in the concessions and the evening easily exceeded $100. The cost of entertainment for a family during a recession was evident by the attendance. Even Idina thanked the audience for their support and graciously mentioned the hard times while offering the lawn participants the chance to fill in the empty pavilion seats.
The last time we were at Riverbend was with Mom and Dad when we all saw Michael Flatley's Lord of the Dance (one of Jenna's favorite childhood videos).
It was a memorable evening - good weather, good food, good company and good music.
