For breakfast I had some homemade egg salad.
When I proclaimed that I was going to celebrate my birthday all month and try to do something fun every day, it was party because several friends have birthdays this month too. Yesterday was my friend Christian‘s birthday. His wife Jamie and I conspired to kidnap him and surprise him with an unexpected evening. So Jamie put the word out, and we pulled off a surprise starting with drinks on the balcony of the Stephen F. Austin Hotel, his favorite spot. It was nice in the shade and our group of 7 had a nice time. Next up, G’raj Mahal.
It was actually pleasant outside, and really festive.
We ordered appetizers and garlic naan to start.
For main dinner, we ordered a variety of curries, paneer, goan coconut fish, tikka masala. It was all good. We were so busy passing food around and eating that I forgot about my camera. It was all really good, with a great amount of spice and heat.
I had packed a cooler with wine and wine glasses. G’raj Mahal has no liquor license, but they don’t charge a corkage fee, which is great.
The property also houses the Austin Bike Museum, so there are really cool bikes here and there.
All in all, it was a fun Virgo birthday evening. More to come!
