The absolute chaos of getting tickets to see Bad Bunny at Yankee Stadium earlier this year is something that I will never forget. There was nothing I wouldn’t do to make it to that concert –– it felt like a can’t-miss event. And it turns out, I wasn’t the only one who felt that way this year. According to ticketing marketplace TickPick, Bad Bunny was the most popular ticketed event just across the river in New Jersey.

TickPick created the map below, which shows what was the most in-demand event or concert in every state during 2022. In New York it was Harry Styles, which isn’t too much of a surprise when you consider the residency the former One Directioner held at Madison Square Garden. Bad Bunny was also the top event in Maryland, North Carolina and Oregon, while Florida’s top event was the Formula 1 race in Miami and Adele’s much-anticipated Vegas residency reigned supreme in Nevada.

Check out the entire map below, and see if your neighbors share your interests, or if you live in a place that has a popular event you would have never guessed.

For instance, I had to google one of the most popular names on the map. I did not know who Morgan Wallen was at all. Which is wild considering his concerts were the most in-demand event in more than one-fifth of US states.

What was your most in-demand event of 2022? And how long did you spend on Ticketmaster trying to get tickets?

Mad Mex’s New Menu Item Is Inspired by a Popular Mexican Street Food

mad mex chicken al pastor

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.

Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.

As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
