made it to the big 3-0 last wednesday
! ha ha ! i'm
not the only one now!!! shane
and i headed to fort greene
for the celebration.
we all met for dinner at the smoke joint
, a small and casual but very yummy bbq
we had to wait a while to get the food. and since you just order at the counter and one person basically makes all of the food, we all got our food separately
got his first. i guess this was his impression a pirate eating bbq
in case you were wondering, the smoke joint is vegetarian friendly! i was actually curious as to why we were going there as dave
is a vegetarian
! he orders
the crispy catfish and devours the fries.
i got the hacked chicken sandwich! ooohhh
! i loved it! there was so much meat! and the sauce dripped all over your hands! lovely! the fries were
amazing! just spicy enough!shane
also ordered the joint rubbed corn on the cob. i was unexpectedly full and coudn't
really try it. but it looked good!britt
join the festivities.james
are normally very smiley, happy people! they conversation must have been riviting
strikes a pose.
on to some irish
pub across the street that i can't remember the name of. i had the great idea to pick up some twinkies
from the newsstand next door to the restaurant
and bring them to the bar and then surprise dave
with a "cake"! when we got the the irish
bar, the waitress said that we couldn't eat outside food. whateves
. so britt
and i ordered dave
a slice of chocolate mousse cake. you gotta have cake on your birthday!
i was craving somethings sweet myself, so i tried to discretely pull a package of twinkies
out of the bag that i had shoved under my seat. in my effort to be discreet, i created an embarrassing scene
.... i slid off my chair and pushed the table down and fell to my hands! all for the love of dessert!shhhh
... don't tell the waitress!
*note, these aren't real twinkies
! the news stand
only had lady linda's
. sounds fancy.
since it was a school night, we had to head on home.britt
and i on the train, having a conversation about people we don't like anymore that just a little too loud. oops!
nap time on the metro-north.
