Adventures of the Quinn's
New York City
On a flight to Cancun, my phone alerted me that the pre-sale for Beyoncé’s formation tour was about to start and that 4 of her shows in Canada had already sold out…this pre-sale was for New York’s show at Citi Field stadium on the day of our anniversary. I quickly purchased the tickets (with approval from Mike haha) right before the airplane doors closed. Best decision we’ve made…

Would I go again?
Yes, I’ve been once before this and I’d do it many times over however New York is a place where I could go every 5 years and things would still be the same.
