join the club.

dave 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 joint.

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.

dave 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 and gabe join the festivities.

james and yasmine are normally very smiley, happy people! they conversation must have been riviting!

adam 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.

Those ARE real twinkies! You may not have noticed, but the creme inside is gritty with sugar the way twinkies used to be before the started sweetening them with corn syrup.

catfish is not vegetarian.. it's pescetarian. Those who don't make this distinction can't call themselves vegetarians.
