Over the long holiday weekend, we celebrated Arthur’s 39th birthday over three days. On Friday, his actual birthday, we gathered for a Brazilian meat feast at Taurinus in Downtown San Jose and drank his favorite wine, a 2010 Silver Oak Napa Valley Cabernet. Then we went to the Fairmont Hotel for an afternoon of cocktails. Afterwards, we headed to Jared and Arthur’s place for pizza, a movie, and more wine.
On Saturday, we joined his family for dinner and tiki drinks at Tonga Room in San Francisco. There was a live band so everyone (minus me) tried to dance, but they ultimately decided the songs were too elevator music-y. Sad. At least the giant chocolate cake was divine.
On Sunday, we gathered for a steak dinner at the newly-opened Fleming’s in Santa Clara. We drank some more of Arthur’s favorite wine and just about everyone feasted on prime rib. Delish! Arnon ate fish. *eye roll* After dinner, we returned to Jared and Arthur’s place for games and more wine.
