birthday in the neighborhood

n722580912_355675_5846.jpgAs many of you already know, last Friday was my birthday. I had high hopes of a sneaking in a barbecue on my building’s roof patio on Saturday, but the weather served up one of the rainiest days of the past two weeks on exactly that day.

Instead, I celebrated by meeting a few friends at a bar in my neighborhood. Sounds simple, but it was an evening that stretched out in its own relaxed extravagance and hilarity in a way that makes the passing time seem irrelevant. (That is, until the bar closes down.)

Speaking of the bar, it also did its part: serving excellent food, a small but high-quality beer selection, and a groovin’ DJ. Not so fortunate is that they had Gamla Dansk in stock, and we had a Dane willing to order a round. It occurs to me that we had quite an international crowd: a Dane, a German, a Frenchman, 1 1/2 Swedes, and 1 1/2 Americans (one of these people has dual citizenship).

Here, Jacob (with Christina, again)…


Manu and Daniel…


Hmm…OK, we can do better than that for Manu…

    Happy belated! I’m curious (for obvious reasons)… what sort of grooves were spun by the DJ?

    Hmm, well it ranged from new hip hop to old soul…a little Nina Simone, a little 50 Cent. I wasn’t really paying close attention, though – one of the best things was that it meshed really well with the chatter throughout the bar.
