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.
