October Date Night: Barbecue and Blues Festival

This month, my date night is with my momma to celebrate her birthday! For our night out, we went to a barbecue and blues festival at a vineyard in a small town near where my mom lives and where I grew up. It was a perfect combination of fun and relaxation with amazing artists, delicious barbecue, and beer and wine.

To the festival, my mom and I wore coordinated outfits, obviously.  I have on a grey long-sleeve tee and denim jumper from H&M and a hat from Jack and Lucy that I got in my latest PopSugar Must Have box.  My mom dressed in a chambray button up top, black skinny jeans, with layered brown necklaces.  Our attire felt very casual, and appropriately festival-like.

The set up was all outside, on a perfect evening.  Everyone brought their own lawn chairs and set up outside a stage by a red barn.

My mom and I each grabbed some beers and barbecue (ironic that my mom’s name is Barb? Barbecue for Barb, get it?), then listened to a line up of blues and roots bands through the rest of the evening.

If you’re looking for a last night to go out before the weather turns too cold, I would definitely recommend researching what festivals in your area are still happening.   Most outdoor festivals seem to wrap up in October, at least in the Midwest where the weather can be pretty unpredictable starting in November, and it feels so nice to spend an evening outside without shivering.
