Y’all Ready for This? ~ The Wait is Almost Over!
Posted by djafan on Monday, September 12, 2011
@StevenJRob: Just finished rehearsal with the boss! Y’all ready for this?!!!!
Well are y’all?? Since many of us are driving or flying out on Friday, we have a launch window or just T-minus 4 days! I have officially entered spazz mode. This will be the final update post until the weekend so… excuse me for a moment, won’t you?
Ah…that feels better. Where was I? Oh yeah. One more update post till we leave.
The time is too far spent to email or send SweetonDA any cards or gifts. We are asking anyone who will be coming to please bring your cards/gifts to the restaurant for lunch or to the venue for placing in his bag.
Here is a pic of the hockey bag SandyBeaches’s husband bought for David along with her description. “The sports bag is 31 inches long and much more deep than it looks, about 14 inches and expands, with different pockets that you can’t see and sporty features. There is room in an outside pocket for cards. Altogether it will take hundreds of cards. The outside will have an American flag and a Canadian tag, or something along that line.”
Two bouquets will be purchased…one from the fans who could not attend and one from those attending. SweetonDA has received enough from the fans not attending to purchase a lovely bouquet from them to him. Like I said, we will be collecting small, voluntary donations from those attending at the restaurant or venue. If there is any money left over, we will be getting an Edible Bouquet too from a place there in Gilbert. With Mangoes!!
They have all been mailed. If you are going, please email Djafan at thevoiceda@gmailcom and she will send you the time and place where you can get with her to buy one on Friday. She has to turn the remainder in to Barbara Stowell Saturday morning to be sold at the gate to the general public.
SandyBeaches has generously purchased awesome silicone bracelets for gifting to everyone going to the event! Anyone who has a wristband will receive a bracelet, shown below. She has ordered a nice variety of sizes too, not just one size fits all. If you are not going, send her one American dollar to cover Canadian postage which you can not buy here. To get her address, email her at email@example.com Be sure to tell her what size you want: 7, 71/2 or 8.
*Lunch at Pei Wei Asian Diner*
We need to meet up in order to give out the bracelets and just to meet and eat! Please come to Pei Wei at 11:00 am and we will talk, chow in 5 languages and collect donations for flowers from anyone who wants to contribute. We will also accept any cards or gifts you want given to him. If you’d rather eat elsewhere, you can just come there and get your bracelet or we will give it to you at the venue, not a problem. If you have a wristband you will get a bracelet. No one will be allowed in the gates until 5:30 pm, so I hope we can spend some time shopping and enjoying the day!
Address of Pei Wei is 1084 S Gilbert Suite 601 Gilbert, AZ 85296. They do not take reservations and we have no idea how many will be joining us for lunch there anyway, so we will just invade the place and take possession. 😆
Here is the link to Pei Wei with menu and prices and visual of its proximity to Civic Center/Town Square.
So, I guess that’s about it. Can’t wait to meet up with everyone going! Can’t wait to hear the Voice live again! Yes, Steven, we are so ready! For those not going, please know that we will be sending a ton of tweets, texts, pics and vids as soon as possible! Lots of awesome photographers and videographers attending!
Did you notice this post is all in red, white and blue? It’s a celebration of the US Constitution. Let’s represent!
You think there’s any chance?
