Saturday night we headed to Buca di Beppo for dinner with some longtime Austin friends. (Notice I didn't say old.)
Anne recommended the place for us, and it was perfect! The Italian food is served family style, and with Cynthia at the head of the table to order and divvy everything up, we were in excellent hands.
The food was delicious, and yes, I could eat! (You know, those carbs are really, really good! How I've missed them!)
Here are the Chocolate Vesuvio cake and the birthday candles. The birthday song even came with "accordian" accompaniment!
The food was great, but the company was even greater. I miss my Austin friends so much, so we'll take advantage of any excuse—even aging!—to get together with them.
Thanks, guys, for the wonderful company and the many, many laughs! It was great to see y'all!
