Our 2-year wedding anniversary is in a couple weeks and we celebrated a little early by going down to Tucson last Saturday night. It’s under a 2 hour drive and one of our favorite little getaways.
We stayed at Hotel Congress which is seriously one of my favorite hotels ever. It’s a historic hotel with old-west charm, the friendliest staff, super comfy beds, and has fun bars & a yummy restaurant on-site. We’ve even spent a few of the best New Year’s Eves here, with about 15-20 of us making the trip from PHX.
The trip was spurred by my anniversary gift to Brian, tickets to see John Hodgman at the Rialto Theatre across the street from the hotel. We are both big fans so it was kinda a gift to me/from me too :)
One of the fun parts about seeing a show at this theatre is that the act seems to usually be staying at Hotel Congress also. We ended up meeting John Hodgman outside our room before the show AND hung out with him and his co-act John Roderick after! Such a fun night and it couldn’t have gone more perfectly!
After the show, he did a book signing, but since we forgot our books at home, he signed polaroids that we each took with him. Brian even took a couple of the John’s for them to keep.
Can I please live in the Hotel Congress?
