I had a great birthday, full of activity! First, we dropped my daughter off at my in-laws where she spent the night for the first time. She still hasn't come home...
Then, we went to Manuels Restaurant in Downtown. It was a nice atmosphere where I had some chicken enchiladas and Mike had some beef fajitas. I even splurged and got a drink, however, they put a lot of green "stuff" in the drink that kept coming up my straw, so I was fishing most of it out. It didn't really have any taste, so it wasn't mint like I thought it was.
Then we walked some streets since neither of us had been down there in years. I had not been to 6th street since I was 18 so I definitely didn't recognize anything, but Mike recognized a few places.
There were also lots of homeless people and beggers. I was surprised at the number of beggers down there. We just politely walked passed.
After that, we made our way up to Central Market, yes, the grocery store. I laughed when Mike suggested this because I had no idea how to picture what he was talking about. Central Market has live music, and apparently it's very prestigious to be able to play there. The band, Seth Walker, was recommended by a friend of his.
This Central Market is very different than the ones in Dallas. There is a full restaurant, bottles of wine, smoothies, anything you want... there is an outside area, inside area, upper level deck... There is even a cooking school inside, and I took a brochure in case I wanted to do that in the future.
There was even a play area, that was hard to get a good picture of because of all the trees. This makes it a very family friendly place to go. I could imagine when Alyssa got a little older, we could just tell her to go play, we could enjoy a nice dinner, and listen to live music all at the same time.
After all that, we got home, and I got a Wii. I've been wanting a Wii for years, but I didn't want to buy it for myself. I wanted someone else to buy it for me, I'm silly like that. Anyway, we stayed up a little bit while I kicked his butt in Golf and Boxing, though he won Bowling.
All in all, it was a very nice Birthday. Thank you to all for the well wishes!
