Living in Charleston is wonderful but sometimes you just need to get outta town and take a road trip. Last Friday Steve and I hit the road and drove 2 hours up to Columbia to catch the Bruno Mars show. What a great getaway!
The show was incredible and he is a true talent. Singer, dancer, guitar player, drummer — he does it all. The place was packed and I have never been to a show that had a wider range of fans. Bruno has been an entertainer since he was a kid and it shows. Steve and I have a penchant for attending pop star performances (Beyonce, Pink, Lady Gaga, Brittney, et al.) and this road trip might have been one of the best.
And Columbia was a fun town too! Even though we were there less than 24 hours, it was nice to steal away for a day and walk around downtown before and after the show. We stayed at the Marriott Courtyard and it was conveniently located to the arena and Gervais St. where there are a number of bars and restaurants. Columbia is the state capitol and it was kind of fun to see the dome and nice to know that when we need a quick road trip, it’s only two hours away.
And here’s a little dose of Bruno Mars’ “Treasure” – Enjoy! http://youtu.be/nPvuNsRccVw
