Another year has gone by

I celebrated my birthday yesterday! It was a nice and relaxing day, Jason went out early to get me some of my favorites donuts for breakfast. I spent most of the day being lazy. it was great!

We went out last night and checked out the scene downtown. It was fun. After hearing many good things about a particular Tapas & Wine Bar that is where I decided to have dinner. So glad I did. It was AWESOME! The food was so incredible and the wine was too. We choose to do a few \”flights\”. A flight is a tasting of a particular type of wine. We did the Pinot Noir and Spanish wine flights. Most were pretty good and we found a few favorites. For those that do not know Tapas is Spanish appetizers. You can order as many as you like and we ordered 6 different ones and enjoyed them all. The lamb was FANTASTIC and so was the Spanish cheeses. The fresh baked pita bread could not be beat either. I could go on and on…then we had dessert…it was cream cheese stuffed pastries topped with whipped cream and strawberries. It puts the best strawberry shortcake to shame! Obviously we found a great and favorite place to go back to again and again. We would be happy to take you when you come visit as well 🙂

After dinner we went to an outside martini bar and cigar lounge. That was fun. An 80\’s cover band was playing last night and they rocked. They played a wide variety and sounded like the real deal. We heard Aerosmith, Twisted Sister, Guns N Roses, and Blondie to name a few. The people watching was fun…you can only imagine. The chocolatini I had was so yummy! Surprisingly the drink was not a chocolate color…it was crystal clear but full of flavor.

We had a great time and enjoyed being out on the town. If it was not for an horrible headache, more like a migraine we would have stayed till the band stopped playing. But it was also nice to come home and go to sleep…I slept so well last night. It was a good birthday and I am looking forward to our next trip to the Tapas and wine bar!
