For Dan's 31st birthday, I planned an entire Saturday full of surprises.
We had donuts for breakfast...
A Skype chat with Brett Jackson (who woke up at 7:30am Pacific Time to make the call...thanks BJ)...
Lunch at Japanese fast food restaurant Go! Go! Curry! which is also a shrine to former Yankee (and my favorite baseball player) Hideki Matsui...
Tickets to see Broadway's "musical of the season:" Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson
A kayaking tour on the Hudson River...(yes, I told Dan to pack a change of clothes!)
The Birthday Boy and me.
Birthday present shopping at where else....a record store. Dan selected Rotary Connection's Christmas album.
We met up with Kayleen, Julien, Jason, Justin, Kim and Nien at The Magician for a drink and some jukebox plays, and then had a late dinner (and birthday cake!) at Supper.
The end of the night.
Oh yes, there were personalized Dan birthday hats.
Collect all four.
The verdict: I think Dan enjoyed his day of fun but I learned something about him. My man doesn't like surprises. He spent most of the day trying to figure out what we were doing and getting stressed out about it. I think his favorite part of the day was dinner at the end because I told him it was the last surprise and then he could finally relax!
