Birthday Update

Thank you to everyone that wished me a happy birthday through e-mail, phone calls, facebook, etc. ๐Ÿ™‚ I spent my birthday doing work (wow…this is what it’s like to be out of school!) and David Li took me out for cupcakes at Crumbs in the midafternoon. We shared a red velvet cupcake with cream cheese frosting in Bryant Park:

After work, I headed to Agave, a Southwestern restaurant in the West Village. It was a really beautiful day and Chris and I ate outside, taking advantage of the cool breeze. We ordered fresh guacamole, a grilled Adobo Chicken quesadilla, and Agave’s Kobe Beef Burger:

The burger had that awesome grill taste that reminds you of the summer and barbeque’s and the meat was really tender. The fries, on the other hand, weren’t that great – the fries probably needed to be submerged in the oil longer and the seasoned salt didn’t taste great (although I’m usually a big fan of seasoned fries).

After Agave, we headed to Pinkberry for the BEST birthday surprise ever. The Chelsea Pinkberry has the best customer service and they always give us the right amount of Pinkberry (the Pinkberry in Ktown makes the medium serving incredibly hollow). It was the perfect birthday celebration ๐Ÿ™‚

The next day (May 30th), was Chris’ birthday and I surprised him with a birthday cake from Fay Da Bakery:

On top of the awesome Chinese styled cakes they have, Fay Da also has incredibly delicious pork buns (too bad they’re so bad for you!). They also make good egg tarts and pastries in general.

Both of our birthdays were great – after eating Fay Da’s cake, we went to Corner Bistro for burgers – YEAH that’s what you get to do when you’re 23!
