I believe in not just a birthday, but a birthday week. And sometimes, when appropriate, birthday month (that one can be tricky to get people to play along with).
This year I am 26, and on the eve of my birthday, Mike and I went to Babbo. It was out of this world! And the dessert they brought out was the most delicious birthday cake I could ever ask for! The detail at that place is ridiculous. I'm always impressed with cursive lettering in chocolate, or any other kind of flavor/consistency.
The actual day of my birthday, I got my nails done. I NEVER get manicures, because my nails need to be in weird shapes in order to pick on the guitar, and bright colors on my hands is not really my thing. But since it was my birthday, I wanted to do something different and fun. Hence, hot pink fingernails!!!
I met up with Mike after his play (which is only around for a few more days at The Cherry Lane Theater. It's called "Extinction"--definitely worth checking out if you're into that kind of stuff), and we headed to one of my favorite NYC eats, Cafe Habana. I'm holding a pitcher of Sangria with my hot pink fingernails. :)
After that we headed to the Flatiron Lounge, where they make fancy fun drinks. In the forefront is my jalapeno infused tequila with muddled strawberries and some other fun stuff I can't remember. In the background is a gin drink that tasted like chamomile tea, and the froth on top is egg whites--FANCY YUM!!!!
All in all, it was a wonderful past couple of days. And it couldn't have happened without my friends, Mike, and nyc.
