I’m in the middle of craziness of grad school final papers. Yes…it is crazy..no joke…and will make you want to pull your hair out. When I am done, I will feel so accomplished. Anyhoo, I want to talk about my experience in Boston a week and a half ago. Hence, I will be sharing the experience in parts, because it was that awesome and fabulous. Along with my co-worker J and my classmate E, we made the trip into Boston to attend the Anomaly Tour with Lecrae and Andy Mineo. First, we went to the Lecrae and Andy Mineo meet and greet at Johnny Cupcakes. By the way, if you are unsure of who these two guys are, let me give you a very short explanation. They are rappers who spit positve Christian themed messages and are signed to Reach Records. I really enjoy their music, so I knew that I had to make it to this meet and greet. I’m glad that E let me know about it. I told J about it, and she was down. Check out the my geek moment below as I was waiting in line outside to meet Lecrae and Andy Mineo:
We waited in a line for about an hour and a half. While we were waiting, we introduced ourselves to N, a fellow Lecrae and Andy Mineo fan. We were all so excited and chatted about our love for their music. The meet and greet was supposed to be happening from 12-2pm, and I became a little nervous when it approached 2pm. Fortunately, the girls and I were not the cut off point and were able to walk into Johnny Cupcakes. When the girls and I approached the table where Lecrae and Andy Mineo were sitting, they were so down to earth and greeted us with smiles. I asked the guys to sign my Heroes for Sale and Rebel CDs. Lecrae commented on the fact that I brought the Rebel cd out and noticed how frayed the cover was. I told him that was one of the CDs that I had on repeat and that was why the cover looked like it did. When we all left the meet and greet, we were chatty, smiley, and hungry. We invited our new friend N to lunch and decided to get our grub on at Shake Shack.
While we are chowing down at Shake Shack, can you guess who walked into the place? Guess..guess…guess! Lecrae, Andy Mineo, and their body guards. We were so surprised and shocked that we were running into the guys again. More geekiness on my part happened. I saw Andy Mineo ordering some food. I looked at him, yelped, and did a little jig. I figure that he must have thought that I was nuts. Maybe, he is used to folks acting up when they see him and Lecrae. We weren’t able to take pictures with them, but we were able to offer our table to them. You know, we had to display Christian hospitality. Andy Mineo fist bumped N and I and said “Double-dippin’, huh?” Umm…I was done. I got up and yelled “This made my day.” E, J, N, and I did not want to overwhelm the guys as we figured they were tired and hungry, so we left. Even though, it would have been great to take pictures with our fave rappers, I think seeing them randomly in person made us happy. With our happiness bursting within us, we could’ve all done cart-wheels down the streets of Boston.
Please stay tuned for some more highlights from our day in Beantown!
