Over the past week, I've enjoyed a nearly perfect trifecta.
My adventures began last Thursday night in attending an exquisite recital offered by the divine Renée Fleming at the Ordway Center for the Performing Arts in St. Paul, Minnesota. Sure, it may not have been an actual opera, but the evening certainly gave me a much deeper appreciation for one of the world's most beloved art forms.
To see my full chronicles of the evening, please click here where I've provided my dear friend Sarah Roberts of Adventures in the Endless Pursuit of Entertainment with my full account of my transformation into Steve On Opera (SOO). Without Sarah's enthusiasm and encouragement, I most certainly would have missed out on this incredible opportunity.
As any horse-lover knows, Lexington is the epicenter of America's equestrian community, if not the world's. Our weekend in Kentucky coincided with the World Equestrian Games, making this vibrant yet quaint city come alive. So it should come as no surprise that we concluded the visit at the city's storied Keeneland for some thoroughbred racing. For me it's a win anytime I have a chance to get up close and personal with horses.
This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).
