Pre-Birthday Weekend Extravaganza-Day 2

Well imagine that, my first post about my Birthday weekend was post number 430 which is my Birthday 4/30!

Now on to Sunday which was a little less active and more about friends. You’ve seen previous posts about our rotating brunch with the 3 other couples that we do roughly once a month. This month we decided, since the couple who’s turn it was to host is getting married at the end of May, that we would make this a Brunch field Trip.

From the bottom left around we have Scott and John, Corey, The Hubby,  Corey’s Hubby Allen, Me, Allen’s Mom and the token straights Matt and Robin. Aren’t we a beautiful bunch.

The restaurant we go to for brunch is very cute and has a pretty good menu. Not to mention the Brunch includes Endless Bellinis or Bloddy Marys. You can see which I went with.

I ordered the Salad for my first course as the Asparagus Puree just didn’t interest me. For my main course I had their take on Eggs Benedict.

I didn’t get a picture of anyone Else’s meal but they all looked just as good. The Hubby had BISTECCA DELL ’IMPICCATO E UOVA – Grilled hangar steak topped with frizzled onions, served with farm fresh fried eggs and home fried potatoes. There were a couple other dishes on either side of me that looked really good as well, French Toast, Salmon, and another Eggs and Ham dish with a spicy tomato sauce.

Little did we know when we arrived that sitting at a large (at least 20 people) table next to us would be a surprise 50th Birthday party. So not to be out done we of course had to make it known that my Birthday was approaching as well.  So when my dessert of Cannoli and Peanut Butter Sorbet arrived there was a candle in it! The waitress really made me happy.

After brunch the celebrating wasn’t over and it was such a gorgeous day out that we ended up walking down the street to another bar for a couple more drinks.

After a couple drinks we had to head home and feed the pups and get ready for bowling, we are down to the wire for bowling season and after last night (which I will recap later in the week) we only have 2 nights left, the last being position round which will crown the winning team for the year.

Well it was back to work on Monday, tonight we are going to a local German Restaurant for the Tuesday Night buffet with a few friends, hopefully the weather will cooperate and we can sit outside in the Biergarten.
