This past weekend I celebrated my 27th birthday with some of my closest friends. I hate to say this and to some it may sound totally ridiculous but I actually am starting to feel old! Late twenties is weird. I would actually love to just click pause and stay 27 for years but sadly this isn't possible so might as well embrace the fact that I am nearing 30!
Anyway, I had a lowkey fun brunch at Tijuana Picnic- one of my favorite places to go out in the LES. They have 1.5 bottomless brunch option for $20 extra on top of whatever entree you get. After we reached a good buzz, we proceeded to go to one of our NYC faves #verlaine for Lychee Martinis-what else? 3 martinis in, and it was time for Karaoke, because when in the LES you go to BoHo Karaoke as an in between to the rest of the night. After an hour+ of drunken fun, we headed to Spitzers for yet more drinks and grub. By this point it was past midnight (we started at 2:00 pm) so some people began to part home. A few us continued to rally and so we headed to the ever ratchet but fun Los Feliz. We had an entire chocolate cake left of which we were picking off with our fingers (I know ew but ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ) thankfully Andrew ended up getting us forks so we could eat like civilized human beings. If 4 places and 11 hours of straight drinking wasn't enough-- we decided to hit up one more place before heading home. We headed to Wassail, one of my favorite bars and home to endless delicious cider options! Truth be told we would have stayed out later but Wassail closed at 2:00 which actually became 3:00 am because of daylight savings.
All in all, this was a fantastic 27th birthday and only reiterated my love for my friend family and this fun and beautiful city!
