It’s that time of year again, folks. It’s my birthday coming up in the middle of August! At risk of sounding semi childish, I always really look forward to celebrating every year. Granted, I don’t count down the days from months in advance like I did when I was younger, but I do still enjoy taking some time to plan the event. From as early as I can remember, my parents always let me make decisions about the birthday event and went along with whatever crazy kid-like theme I wanted. There was the magician… the piñata … the trampoline… the rock climbing… the novelty custom birthday cakes. Who me, spoiled? Never! The cakes were so much fun, I always got to choose from my mom’s huge book of fun cakes for kids, the farm was definitely my favorite.
This year will be slightly different, of course, with my turning 27 and all. This whole decision making process was quite difficult and lengthy, but I do believe the choice was made. After going to check it out with some friends tonight, I am pleased to announce the location of the event this year… Patty Boland’s restaurant; their adorably cozy private room (picture at the bottom) will be booked. Sound-proof walls, TV screen, sound system, it has it all. I also really loved the pub itself, the food was delicious and at super reasonable prices. But, what I loved the most was definitely the atmosphere, it wasn’t just your run-of-the-mill pub, but a homey, friendly place to eat and spend time with friends. The live entertainment can’t hurt either 🙂
