Birthday Fun with My Love
Celebrating birthdays is one of my favorite things in life. Last Friday night was no exception. Christopher and I spent the evening at the fabulous Club A Steakhouse in Manhattan. Such a fantastic time! And the food is SO delicious!
We started off with some lobster bisque...probably the best I've ever had. We shared a meat platter with filet mignon and NY Strip for the main course alongside broccoli and mashed potatoes. The Happy Birthday dessert plate was a perfect assortment of tasty treats to top off the night.
The next night, we celebrated with The Soul Rebels featuring Talib Kweli. When I asked Chris what he wanted to do for his birthday, this was his choice. We'd never been to the Brooklyn Bowl so we headed there about a half hour before the show was set to begin. We figured that would give us time to find a nice spot to settle into before the show started. Little did we know it would be nearly two and a half hours until we'd see any sign of life on the stage. Ugh! Not ideal for the over 30 crowd...which may have just been us. But still, sort your life out Brooklyn Bowl!!
Once the group got started around 10:15, they weren't bad. I was partial to the songs that included rappers like Nigel Hall, Talib Kweli, and Rakim. The show lasted a little over and hour which was a bit disappointing since we had waiting so long for them to come on, but Talib Kweli performed Chris' favorite song so I guess it all worked out in the end. I was just happy that Chris had such a wonderful day and weekend. Cheers to another great year ahead!
