Cake Boss at the F.M. Kirby Center for the Performing Arts

My hometown is usually pretty quiet and lately we have been getting more exciting things to do with a new casino built this year. The F.M. Kirby Center for the performing arts in Wilkes-Barre, Pa is a great art deco building with a long history. It seats about 2,000 and it very intimate, great to see a movie, ballet, concert or comedy show. Adam Lambert began his tour here on June 4th and it was quite a crazy time. I am happy to see great shows at this unique building and for the area. When I heard the Cake Boss, Buddy Valastro was coming, I had to obtain tickets. I watch the show and being full Italian, can understand the way his family operates!! 

here is the truck parked on the side of the F.M. Kirby Center, got me very excited

the poster for the show like an old vintage movie theater

the stage was like Carlo's Bakery...very cute ..they celebrated their 100th birthday this year 

he came out of the lobby doors to the tune of Def Leppard's Pour Some Sugar on Me ..very appropriate...then when on stage started shooting tee-shirts at the crowd

you know Italians talk with their hands a lot...his were non-stop

cupcakes...even here...decorating with some lucky women on stage to try to do the same as Buddy

I would have been very nervous up there but Buddy was really nice and gave them all tee shirts 

the crowd was very mixed, men - women - children - all ages - which was nice. the kids had their turn next and did pretty well. There were so many Buddy did 2 sets of kids decorating cuppies. They all got tee shirts and took their cupcakes as well.

Buddy seemed like a really good guy and to enjoy working at the bakery with his family. He talked about working on opening a 40,000 square foot facility to be able to ship his wonderful baked goods worldwide. Sounds like a great plan to me. Can't wait for that to be up and running. Cannolis and Lobster Tails are calling me!! Hoboken is very close to NYC and is the hometown of Frank Sinatra...need I say more. 

Next post will be Buddy decorating a cake and a little surprise........
