That Time We Saw Jimmy Fallon...



last thursday, aj and i (along with my cousin, zac, my brother, mark, his girlfriend, natalie, and aj's grandmother) hopped in the car and headed to nyc for the day.  mark and natalie were heading to see the fantastic mr. fox in a park underneath the brooklyn bridge, but aj, zac, grammy and i?  we were headed to see the fantastic mr. fallon. (heh...see what i did there?)

just in case you're not aware, jimmy fallon is wonderful.  i'm a total sucker for the slightly geeky adorable guy (think marshall on how i met your mother), and mr. fallon is exactly that.  (for the record, aj is too)  as charming as he is on tv, he is that times 100 live.  totally goofy and adorably funny.  steve higgins is the perfect wingman, and the roots are probably the best session band to ever grace the tonight show stage (and i'm a total authority on that since i can name approximately 0 other bands that have ever graced the tonight show stage).

if you're wondering how to get tickets to see jimmy live, here's how it works:  tickets are released on jimmy's website and are usually released a month and a time.  like the tonight show's page on facebook and follow them on twitter to get alerts about when they're going to release tickets, then get ready.  basically, you need to get on the website the second ticket sales go live.  you'll be entered into an online queue and released to the ticketing website when it's your turn (if you're lucky).  aj and i both refreshed the page when the clock struck 11am the day tickets were released, and it took him 15 minutes to get released to the website and i sat in the queue until i eventually got sent to a page that said that all july dates were sold out.  fortunately, you can reserve up to four tickets, and you can take anyone you want (over the age of 16) with you!  they're not easy to get, but if you're quick with your trigger (or mouse-clicking) finger, you might get lucky like we did!



this is the front of rockefeller center, which you probably know if you've ever been there or seen an episode of 30 rock (and if you haven't seen an episode of 30 rock, you're totally missing out).  it's a gorgeous building, and because i kinda love cities and really love 30 rock, it feels a little magical visiting it.  (this photo was also my submission for the lines prompt of the #holdersnotfolders challenge on instagram, which you should definitely check out!)



rockefeller center also has this giant flower sculpture happening in front of it right now....it's right where they put up the christmas tree during the holidays, and it's supposed to be half rocking horse/half dinosaur...kinda weird, but super cool because it's massive and it waters itself from the inside and i can't even imagine building it.

oh, and p.s. ... i've partnered with rachel and a bunch of other bloggers to bring you a pretty awesome giveaway, so be sure to check that out, enter, and have a happy friday!

    I love Jimmy fallon! I live in France and I have introduced him to our friends and they love him also. Apparently he is huge in India. We even had our own lip sync contest party. I hope you had a blast!

    ReplyDelete
  24. it could definitely be tricky since tickets aren't released until the month before the taping...but it was such a fun experience if you can get them and swing the trip! i resisted watching 30 rock for the longest time, but then once i did, it was like "what was i thinking?!" it's so good!

  36. Oh, how jealous I am that I wasn't able to write this post. I have DVRed every episode of Late Night and The Tonight Show with Jimmy as long as I can remember. I have breakfast with him every morning. haha! Seeing him live is definitely on my list of things to do. I also couldn't agree more with you on that slightly geeky adorable-ness of guys (although I was a Ted fan on HIMYM...until the last couple of episodes). And Higgins. And The Roots. All just so good. :)

  37. haha! i love this comment....it was SO fun to see him live! dream. come. true. :)
    I'm like you....I watch him all the time, but not consistently at the same time each day, though breakfast with jimmy sounds fantastic :) everything about The Tonight Show is just wonderful
