Let’s rewind back to day sixteen….

As promised, here’s my super late post on what I wore to Summer Stage.  My friend Glenna and I went to go see Jim Gaffigan (my favorite comedian EVER)  perform in Central Park.

Here’s what I wore.

Day Sixteen 2

Day Sixteen 3

Despite it taking me over an hour and half to get home from work (a drive that should only take 20 minutes) and then another 30 minutes to get to the park from my apartment, it was totally worth it.  Once I had a beer in hand and some Asia Dogs, I was in the best mood ever.  The weather as well as the scenery in the park couldn’t have been more perfect.  It was the epitome of what summer nights should be.

As expected, Jim Gaffigan was hilarious and actually did some new material I hadn’t heard yet which totally made my night.  His opener, a guy named John Pinette was pretty funny too though I he obviously has something against vegans.  A good third of his act was devoted to how he’s confused about vegan diets and juicing appliances.  Boo!  Stuff like that makes me wish people would do their research first as to what something is all about  prior to making public statements in front of thousands of people.  Especially in this city which is full of vegans, vegetarians and eco and health minded residents!  Lucky for him I’m a vegan that can laugh along and take stereotypes in stride and not personally.  The rest of his act was still pretty funny and he did sound just like Gilbert Gottfried, so I guess I’ll give him a pass for stupidity.

    I love Jim Gaffigan but I also think he has some anti-veg bits he’s done in the past too. I will never understand it. I wish people just got heckled when they are lame like that!

      Really? I’ve heard most of his material and never heard anything anti-veg but then again with his love of fast food chains I wouldn’t doubt that though.

      I never really hold it against folks for misunderstanding and making fun of veganism, so I wouldn’t be one to heckle but that’s just me. I kind of view it like the Matrix, you have to be ready to take the red pill and really open your eyes to what’s happening and how it affects your body and the environment. If someone isn’t ready to make that decision to really learn more about it, it doesn’t mean they never will. I just wish they’d keep their un-educated public announcements to themselves.
