The eatery where this year's birthday festivities began. It's located on the block around the corner from me and boasts a delicious menu that changes daily.
Suzi shows off the Motorhead sox she got me for my birthday. Does she know me, or what?
The minor sloppiness commences.
Anticuchos appetizer, aka beef heart. It was good, but its taste and texture were very much akin to very tender liver.
My meal: strped bass with mole sauce and assorted veggies.
Suzi's meal: bluefish with plantain, guacamole and spicy pickled cabbage.
The incredible tres leches cake. Words cannot describe its deliciousness, and I'm not even a dessert guy!
With Suzi. She's simply the best, and if she didn't have to fly to Philly the next day for work, we probably would have closed the place and ended up smashed on several carafes of quality sangria.
My solo birthday meal. Since I'm not "getting any" this go-around, I figured I'd indulge in a delicious repast of Peking duck at Park Slope's only genuine and genuinely superb Chinese sit-down restaurant, Hunan Delight. I didn't have to share with anybody, so I gorged shamelessly but left enough for tomorrow's breakfast.
And since it has been my policy in recent years to drag my birthday doings out for sometimes as long as two weeks, the adventuring and good times will only continue, so STAY TUNED, dear Vaulties!
