yo gabba gabba live in b-lo

I don't keep much of a secret of how we all as a family love Yo Gabba Gabba. This week we took Owen to his first ever live show at the University of Buffalo Centre for the Arts to see Yo Gabba Gabba Live. 
Owen was totally thrilled when he realized he was going to see, "Muno". This cut-out is as close as we came to meeting Muno, but our seats were very close to the stage. 
It was actually the perfect spot because any closer you probably would have strained to see the entire stage. 
Bright lights, cannons shooting off confetti and loud music were all things that I wasn't sure how Owen would deal with, but he was delighted by it all. He watched with wonder through the entire performance.
There were some great appearances including Biz Markie!
 And we weren't expecting to see Leslie Hall on tour with them.
Probably the thing that really surprised me was how dressed up everyone was. I guess it isn't much of a surprise to see kids dressed up as baby DJ Lance Rock and homemade outfits to suit their favourite characters. But half the parents were dressed up as well! These are our type of people! Usually we are the ones arriving in public places unashamed to be dressed up. But here, we looked pretty conservative.

Then we finished our night out with dinner at Duff's. This place is famous for Buffalo wings and gained notoriety when President Obama came here for lunch. They offer a limited menu of wings and fries. We ordered a combo of 20 wings, fries and beer for $20. Owen even tried a medium wing!
