Cheech and Chong Concert Mount Pleasant, MI

We saw that Cheech and Chong were coming to Soaring Eagle Casino in Mount Pleasant, MI  on a billboard along Michigans I-75 on the way to our Bay City, MI Date weekend (earlier posting).  David LOVES Cheech and Chong, he plays their YouTube videos to me all the time, and quotes them in – so he bought tickets and booked a room for us immediately.   Turns out it was a sold out concert.  I have watch many clips, but was not sure what to expect – were they going to sit and tell stories, show movies and talk about it, just sit and smoke, lol.   Actually,  it was a delightful variety show with acted out scenes from their classic movies, stories from their personal lives, dancing, music… it was a pleasure to watch this ~1.5hour show.  Did you know Cheech was signed by Motown and was in Bobby Taylor and the Vancouvers.  Apparently both have a long time connection to Michigan, so I was not surprised they came to town (well outskirts of town). After the concert they announced, we could pay $150 for a personal picture and time with both Cheech and Chong, but we opted out of that experience.  Another wonder weekend with my husband.

Date night Weekend!
Hard to see it, but the while just a parking lot, it looked so beautiful at night from our Hotel.
