29th Birthday Party

This year, I wanted to do something a little different for my birthday. Instead of having a party here at my place, a bunch of friends got together and we went out to the new National Harbor, specifically, Bobby McKey's, a piano bar.

I read about Bobby McKey's in the Washington Post a few months ago when it was favorably reviewed. I had first been to a piano bar while I was in San Antonio for work and had a great time. Drinking and good music, what else do you need? Then when I was on the cruise, Chris, Andrew, and Whitney spent several evenings in the ship's piano bar and had a lot of fun.

So 26 of us caravaned over the Wilson Bridge a few weeks ago to National Harbor to the piano bar. Our reserved table was VERY close to the front, so it was a bit louder than I had expected, but I think a good time was had by all. We talked, we danced, we drank...dear god, I drank. In fact I was so hung over the next day I had to miss the Fairfax Chocolate Festival, but in retrospect, I think it may have been more the beginning of the flu that hit my full force the next day. Which makes me seem slightly less pathetic. It seems kind of sad to be 29 and lying in bed nauseous and sad because you drank too much the night before.

But let's get to the good stuff! Pictures!

See you all at my 30th!!

Oh, dear god. I'm going to be 30!

You told me you would crop me out of that picture where I'm staring up at the stage slack-jawed. You promised!

I did? Well, I was drunk and any promises I made are not binding. Mwahahaha!
