I don't always feel so thrilled to have a birthday...but I have to say this one was fantastic. Lil Meg was able to come down from San Jose and we had a Birthday Threesome and celebrated her birthday (March 16th), mine (March 23rd) and Sam's (March 30th) all on Saturday Night.
We had dinner at Eclectic Cafe in North Hollywood...complete with some awesome Pomegranate Martinis (antioxidants!) and good company!
And then on to Skinny's Lounge just a few blocks down to party the night away with our nearest and dearest...
Can I just mention not only how awesome I think this photo is...but how down right tickled I am that my best friend and boyfriend get along SO swimmingly? Just tickled!!!
And that was just Saturday!!!
On Sunday (my actual birthday) Chris took me to by far the best restaurant I've ever been to. Saddle Peak Lodge in Calabasas. My pet peeve with super fancy restaurants is that inevitably you're treated with some level of snobbery and disdain. Here, none. None whatsoever. It's an old hunting lodge that has been converted into an award winning restaurant. The decor is anything but modern with massive wood timbers, oversized wicker chairs and stuffed large game heads on the wall (I know...sounds just like me doesn't it??), but I have to say I would recommend this restaurant any day of the week and six times on Sunday. The waiters (even the valets!) are genuinely friendly and the roasted elk is so tender you can cut it with a fork. I could go on and on about this place. We've been here twice and I don't see this being our last visit. I have dreams about this food....just don't look up at the furry stuffed heads on the wall.
