This past Wednesday was one of my very best friends birthday’s. John turned the big 24 so he wanted to celebrate this weekend. On Friday night we went out for drinks before our dinner reservations at a restaurant called August. We had actually been to August exactly this time last year for John’s birthday (see here). Kind of freakin’ scary how quickly time flies. I remember very clearly sitting at a table with John and his friends exactly one year ago to celebrate his 23rd. Strange.
August has such an amazingly intimate, enchanting atmosphere with exposed brick and greenery that is kind of dangling throughout the restaurant. Very NYC, chic, and charming. John and I split the Country Pate to start which was so, so delicious. For my entree, I ordered the Scallops which came with mini potato’s and little bits of bacon.
My meal was absolutely delicious but it took a while for the kitchen to come out with our food and we already had late reservations to begin with. So basically we didn’t eat our meals until 10:30… my stomach hated me for that.
We ended our night at August by singing happy birthday and sharing a couple small desserts.
The festivities continued into Saturday evening where a bunch of us gathered at a bar in Chelsea for more celebrations. It was a fun night and a great way to kick off John’s 24th year
Since today is Sunday, I may try to take it easier. Food shop, gym, and maybe check out a museum in my neighborhood. Sushi might be on the menu tonight from Whole Foods. They have the best sushi!
Have a nice Sunday, everyone!
