One FABULOUS Birthday Party
Tuesday, August 25, 2009
friend Shelley had a fabulous
birthday recently. Her husband threw her a surprise birthday bash. Did I mention that it was fabulous
We celebrated at the Grand Central Bowling Lounge
--a little more sophisticated than your average bowling alley. No glow bowling or bumper lanes. Oh, no! What is a girl to do?!?! I was also impressed with their diverse menu selection, although I couldn't quite bring myself to order the cashew-crusted salmon. To me, there's just something not quite right about pairing bowling with fine dining. But apparently, I missed out on some fabulous
(there it is again....must be in a fabulous
kind of mood) salmon. Oh well, my reuben sandwich was pretty fabulous
It was awfully ("awful" being the operative word) apparent that I had not bowled in over 4 years. I really could have used those bumper lanes!
My performance at billiards was equally as pathetic, although I did squeak out a win (only by a silly scratch-on-the-8 ball technicality).
The round of shots came out just as I received my decaf coffee. There's something very sad about that combination too, although I was indeed thankful for the timing. No shots for me, thank you very much!
Oh, and I had my very first celebrity sighting while we were there. Well, if you consider Wee Man a celebrity. I only know of him because my husband finds entertainment in watching grown men make "jackasses" of themselves on television.

It was actually quite nice to be invited to a birthday party sans ankle-biters and stinky diapers for a change. Happy Birthday, Shelley. I'm glad I got to celebrate with you!

I loved this chardonnay--everything from the intensity of its color to its elegance in flavor. I enjoyed this without food, but I'm sure it would pair nicely with chicken.

Shelley had this to say:
Thank you for helping me celebrate my old age...it wouldn't have been the same without you!!! Hopefully we'll bowl a bit better next time...it certainly can't get much worse! haha!

How FUN! I have a "Girlfriend Road Trip" to Dallas coming up in a few weeks and I can't wait!!! So nice to feel like a cultured adult occasionally.
