Cern’s favorite band is Guns N’ Roses and they reunited, much
like Chip and Cern, to do a concert in San Francisco. Chip took
Cern to this once in a lifetime event which Chip later found out
was Cern’s first ever concert.
Chip and Cern decide to derail the show from the get go and
move on to a retelling of the Guns N’ Roses concert.
Cern was supposed to get off early and meet Chip early in San
Francisco, grab some beers and do this grand plan to get beers,
dinner and enjoy themselves.
Chip was walking along waiting for Cern and he saw Cern’s huge
white van drive by and ran into the street and jumped into the car
which really startled Cern. The found a FREE parking spot in San
Francisco which is a feat in of itself.
The two nerds brought extra battery packs so they can hunt
whilst walking around and having beers before the show.
First stop was at Fort Point Brewery and enjoyed a pint there
and then were looking for some grub to get. They then went to
great local brewery in San Francisco. They have a bad ass beer
garden in the alley just for drinking only which is the best place
to be before a Giants game. Chip and Cern have 3-4 beers here which
they couldn’t really recall.
Chip sorta humble brags about being to a lot of concerts.
Green Day is Chip’s “hardest rock” concert he has been to. Everyone
that was going to the concert had the full on 90’s hair band/ GnR
look with leather jackets, ripped jeans and flannels around the
waist. It was like you took a time machine back to ’91.
It may have been the beer’s talking, but Cern revolved
something to Chip. He had never been to a concert. GnR was Cern’s
true love and was saving his cherry for them. First concert
experience is your favorite band, Chip was very excited for Cern’s
Axel and Slash, in separate cars, had a police escort to the
stadium, so that alerted that the show was about to start. They
were supposed to be on at 8pm and this was around
Chip and Cern got some road sodas from an entrepreneur type
person with an ice chest. Chip bought two Tecate cans for $10 which
in his mind was a good deal. 1 beer inside AT&T Park is $11, so
this was a good deal in Chip’s mind. Chip doesn’t remember, but
Cern claims they drank the beers in front of the cops.
They tired to get sandwiches, but they closed early, so the
food was delayed even more.
Chip and Cern make it into the show and had a hell of a
More beers, Chip and Cern singing along to every song and Cern
bugging people around him. Cern kept tapping the guy in front
telling him how much Slash was crushing it. Chip had to wrangle
Cern in a bit.
Here is Chip and Cern logic. “We need some food to counter act
all this beer. We need some beer to wash this food down
They played every song you wanted to hear, but didn’t do an
encore, which is rare.
Cern parked his car a ways away, but luckily Chip brought his
scooter. Chip and Cern were ripping through lanes, high fiving
people and having a blast. Cern had a great time on the scooter and
loved it from the first minute.
The night was a great time, the next morning however was not a
great time. Chip should have worked from home, but did not. Cern
rolled into work with a five o’clock shadow. Chip had a double
burrito day with a breakfast burrito then some Chipotle for
Cern didn’t catch the concert bug, but he would go again if it
was someone he liked.
Chip and his wife are going to see Sturgill Simpson
in a row in November. Chip tries to see these classic rock legends
before they all start kicking the bucket.
