Birthday Invite

I'm inviting you, the people of the internet, to celebrate my 25th birthday with me! The festivities will start at 12:30 p.m. at Giordano's for lunch. (There's usually a long wait, but we can get a reservation if we have a group of 10+.) Once our bellies are full, we'll move over to Grant Park for cupcakes, board/card games, and good times as we enjoy the fabulous sounds of Jazz Fest. This part is free, free, free. I'm providing the cupcakes, and there is no admission fee for Jazz Fest. I can't decide what I want to do next, so the evening will either wrap up with a group outing to the movies or everyone getting tipsy at the Signature Lounge atop the Hancock Center.

That said, speak up if you know you'll be there, so I can make lunch reservations and so I don't run out of cupcakes. Bring a board game to share if you feel so led, but please don't feel like you need to bring a gift. In fact, I might grumble at you if you bring one, since I'll have to lug that home on the train. (Paypal is a cool option, though, if you're really that generous. Ahem.)

Blah blah, the point is that I'm really looking forward to meeting you and hanging out with you and licking the frosting from your face. SEE YA SOON.

BOOO! I can't make it and haven't been to Chicago in long time. I need me some Ed Debevics (totally butchered the spelling) or crap i can't think of the pizza place i went but I was able to write my name on the wall. ANYWAYS...sorry I can't make it. My gift should arrive via the snail mail sometime next year when it makes it through Homeland Security. Sending a Flamethrower is tougher than you think.

Sounds absolutely brilliant! I will do everything I can to be there as much as I can. It's also my wonderful sister's birthday, so family is congregating and forming plans. If I can find/make any gaps, I'll be filling them with Skirtsapalooza!

Let me re-phrase that. "Sounds absolutely brilliant! I'll be there." All of the best things in the world all at one time? (c.f. LovelyAnomaly) Looking forward to it.

I wish I still lived in Chicago. Sounds like a lot of fun. :)

Can't wait to hear/see which place you picked for cupcakes! I work until 6p up in Lakeview, but will try to track you down afterward!

Sorry I missed it Rachel, but hope you had an AWESOME birthday. Mine was the day before and since I turned double your age, I drank twice as hard and needed an extra day to recover. :P
