Last night, I dragged a bunch of kids and met Sir JJ and Henry Cook at the National World War II Museum to watch the “Stage Door Idol.” They held a major audition and are down to 48 contestants. Last night they had 12 of those contestants compete for the finals and our favorite Museum employee, Emily Brauninger was competing. We all got a voting sheet when we entered. The whole event was very well done with a fabulous MC, a great piano and 3 judges. The 4th vote came from audience tally sheets. Now I told the kids they could vote for whoever they wanted, but they knew we were there to support Emily. They all thought she was the best and she ended up tying with one other awesome performer. While we were watching, we all dined on John Besh’s American Sector cuisine. I had my usual crab pies while the kids had their kid lunch boxes of kiddo food and banana’s foster milkshakes. Sir JJ and Henry dined on shrimp in a bowl and a cup. I encourage you to attend one of the future performances. Also, the museum also has their Sunday Swing Dancing series this summer. Congrats to our Emily who had some tough competition as professionals were in the mix & even a 91 year old WWII Vet singing “God Bless America.” She wowed the audience with her perfect era appearance singing “Sunny Side of the Street.”
