Birthday Girl

Deans Italian Steakhouse at the JW Marriott in Charlotte

Earlier this week, Kathy & I celebrated the ’44th anniversary of her 21st birthday” with a couple of nights in The Big City (Charlotte) with some jazz, dinners with friends, an art museum and lots of walking around. We had a great time, I took a few photos and we are now back on our diets for a few more weeks! 😉

    1. Big in a number of ways – not least of which is that our health insurance goes way down. And goes down even farther next year when I celebrate! More money in the vacation fund! 🙂

      Yeah, the diet. We don’t celebrate milestones by going to the gym, do we? 😉

    1. We’ve got a great jazz club in town that pulls from a pool of excellent local talent as well as attracts some name national acts. The show we saw was a local trio with a singer doing an Ella Fitzgerald tribute. Because of the birthday commitments we missed out on Delfeayo Marsalis, which would have been great.

      Kathy discovered a new (to her) rye, although she thinks you might have told her about it. After being quoted $100 and $50 for an ounce of Whistlepig 15 year and 12 year, a helpful bartender suggested a Basil Hayden Dark Rye, which I can afford! Good thing, too, since we’re about done with the Gunpowder Rye from NE Distilling. 🙁

      1. I do like Basil Hayden but haven’t had the rye. I will though! NE Distilling is still on our lengthy list of Portland sites to see.
