HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CHRISTOPHER!!
Chris and I celebrated his birthday this weekend, but today is actually his big day!
We had an awesome time celebrating on Sunday. We started off with a Newcastle game at his favorite soccer bar in the city. Things didn't look too good in the beginning when the other team scored early, but Newcastle rallied to win in the end. It was a lot of fun because there were a ton of Newcastle fans making up their own little Toon Army.
We grabbed some breakfast after the soccer match ended. Yes, the game ended at 10:30am. I usually don't even get up until then on the weekends!! Totally worth it though! After breakfast, we headed over to Madison Square Garden for our second game of the day - Pitt vs St. John's. There was some pretty terrible officiating, but Pitt was able to hold on for the victory!
We were pretty tired at this point so we took a little nap before we headed over to Clyde Frazier's Wine and Dine for dinner. We had planned to go to a steakhouse originally, but the ones we wanted to go to were closed on Sunday so Chris mentioned he was interested in trying this restaurant. It was perfect!! We had a lot of fun there and even got to see the first half of the Knicks game, too!
|The drinks were named after Frazier's common phrases. We got Hustling & Bustling and Bounding & Astounding. He actually said one of those phrases during the broadcast of the Knicks game while we were there. Too funny!|
|Chris ordered a pizza. I tried the pasta with chicken and zucchini in vodka sauce. Yum!|
We spent the rest of the evening watching the Oscars and just relaxing. We each had a few of our favorites to win so that was cool...even if the broadcast/host wasn't really that great this year!
|Chris was pumped about his Datevitation coupon book.|
We both had a lot of fun! Too bad birthdays only come once a year...
