The special guest star for this outing is the Duncester! We met at the Union Square subway station for the trip on the Q train to Coney Island. It’s always a quicker trip when you have someone to talk to and kid around with on the train, so I thank the Duncester for coming out with me. Okay, it’s off we go...
And through the magic of the internet, here we are at the last stop, Coney Island!
We came a little early so we could take a walk on the boardwalk and look around.
There’s Paul’s Daughter, always glad to see they them surviving with a new lease.
And there’s the Wonder Wheel behind the chain link fence.
I heart this garbage can!
Of course, we have to make a pit stop at Ruby’s bar!
Wow, there’s a big crowd at the bar, looks like we’ll be sitting at a table.
And here’s the beautiful bartender Stephanie, who we met a few weeks ago.
Our view from our table in the back.
I had a three course dinner of a hot dog, fries and a bottle of Budweiser. The Duncester had a hot dog and a knish. Great Coney Island dining at Ruby’s as always!
You’ve got to love the signage on Surf Avenue!
The Duncester got an ice cream cone from Williams Candy for dessert.
Here we are heading down Surf Avenue, almost there!
And we’re here, you have to pay five bucks to get a seat closer to the stage, but still, five bucks for a Joan Jett show, what a deal!
Here’s the program for the show.
As the sun sets, the show is just about to begin.
Everyone’s getting up as showtime is about to start.
Ladies and gentlemen...Joan Jett and the Blackhearts! They started the show off with, “Bad Reputation.”
I was a little nervous, because they said on the website that there’s no cameras allowed. As you can see that rule is not enforced.
Joan Jett rocked the house, as always.
This is as close as I could get to the stage, it was jammed up here.
So I retreated back to our spot.
The Duncester wisely brought binoculars to get a closer look at the show from our seats.
Here’s a shot of Joan on the big screen, she looks fabulous as always!
Another shot of Joan on the big screen.
Flashbombs went off during the song, “Cherry Bomb.”
A tale of two dipshits, check out the guy on the phone during the show and the guy in front of him texting. Jerkoffs.
It was a great show, this is the fifth time I’ve seen Joan Jett and she always puts on a great, rocking show!
Afterwards we decided to have a couple of beers at the Freak Bar.
It was crowded inside with people from the show.
Love the Freak Bar poster!
How cool is this Coney Island pinball machine?
Of course I had to get a shot of Nathan’s at night, always a spectacular view!
Back to the subway for the trip home.
Of course we’ll end with the obligatory subway window shot. Thanks to the Duncester for coming along, it was a great show and a great night!
Surprise link, click on it...I dare you!
I’m posting this super early because I start a temp job this week. As usual, I don’t blog about work, but it could lead to a full time job, so wish me luck please! I’ll comment back to everyone later tonight when I get home. I don't think I should be messing around on the internet my first day!
