We made it to the Hilton about 1/4 mile from the casino – I got a free night using points we accrued from a trip south last year.  They have a free van to the casino! We hopped on the 4 pm shuttle and made our way to an early dinner.

Jim Gaffigan’s Fixer Upper Tour – Foxwoods Grand Theater orchestra row P!

8:45 PM
There was beverage service in our section! We got a couple of Cokes to combat the food coma. We listened to the warm up act – Ted Alexandro – for about 15 minutes. He was a low key chatter about life in NYC with a new (much younger) wife.

Jim Gaffigan came on about 7:20 pm and talked for 75 minutes. It was all new material with long sketches about horses, traveling with his kids, and not running the NYC marathon. We laughed and groaned where appropriate.

9:15 PM Sassy
I got to watch the rest of the Oscars!  Haven’t been around a TV to do that in years. Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s duet at the piano was smoking hot, and I was excited to see Rami Malek win best actor! I usually don’t see many of the nominated movies but I got to Bohemian Rhapsody, The Favourite, and Black Panther.
