Cake, Cake, Cake, Cake, Cake, Cake, Cake, Cake

I used to love throwing a huge birthday party. I've had a glow in the dark party, a leather S&M party, an apocalyptic party. This week, for my 26th, I was just happy to share an intimate dinner with close friends. No theme. No costumes. No Facebook invite. Although JP did bring party hats for all of us to wear...

Having my birthday dinner at Suppenkuche was ideal. The German restaurant located in Hayes Valley is Bavarian Wirthaus-style with big dining room in the back and all the great beer you can pour inside an oversized glass boot.

Afterwards we walked to The Residence, a very comfy bar right off Church and Market. I had to leave after my first drink since I found myself yawning. Late twenties, and I need some vitamins.
