I started out my celebration with having dinner with my parents on my actual birthday and helped build a new sectional sofa my parents got. Friday, I had a happy hour with colleagues and ended up eating sushi for a late dinner.
Toki Underground. Miemo contacted the head chef and owner, Erik and somehow managed to get us "reservations". Typically that restaurant does not take reservations as it is first come first served. Trust me though, it s definitely worth the wait! My first cocktail was the Oolong Hai which was simply delicious. It was a spiked iced tea, unsweetened, but all the more delicious. I'm not going to lie though, I was a little jealous of Miemo and Kim's Toki Monster, not because I'm a huge fan of bourbon but because it came with small skewer of grilled pork belly.
Little Miss Whiskey's Golden Dollar where my friend Saleh had a cup of Awesomeness. Seriously, that's the name of the drink. It was actually pretty good despite the fact it's a frozen drink.
After a round of drinks at LMWGD, we went to Dangerously Delicious Pies. I got the Baltimore Bomb and scarfed it down. I took a break from drinking and had a cup of 2% milk with my pie. I don't know why I waited so long to try this place. Who knew pie could be so scrumptious..you know..besides me.
Here's the rest of the night:
Somehow I even got one of the staff members at H Street Country Club to take a shot with me, nice people there. This birthday turned out to be great and I got to spend it being surrounded by people who love me and that are awesome. They took care of me the whole night--as in spoiled me..I couldn't ask for anything more!
