You did good. We've been on a lot of pretty cool dates in the last 17 years, but this was one of my favorites. I kind of laughed when you asked if I wanted to see Moon Taxi since they are actually one of your favorite bands, but I was so pleasantly surprised. For all the years I begged you to go with me to concerts, you have sure made up for it in the last year. I'm not much of a dancer, but dancing with you is my favorite.
Thank you for adventures, for fun overnight dates and for knowing exactly what I will love. You are still my favorite.
Friday really was the perfect date. We started out with dinner at Babalu, a new tacos and tapas restaurant in Lakeview. I had heard great things and we were far from disappointed. We had house chips and pico de gallo, chicken tacos and steak on a stick. I would go back for breakfast right now.
We saw The Lonely Biscuits and Moon Taxi at Iron City in Birmingham. It's a great venue that we had visited once before and it did not disappoint. We stood in a completely different place and it was the sweet spot, for sure. We were so close to the stage, but out of the pit, so we had plenty of room to move around. And move around we did. Both bands were phenomenal and you couldn't be still if you wanted! We hadn't heard anything by LB before, but we have now downloaded the album and indoctrinated the children. I have no idea how to describe the music, but we dubbed it "hipster rap" -- their voices are amazing and the base player was so much fun to watch.
Josh was smart and decided to reserve us a room downtown. It was just around the corner from the venue so we were able to stay out late without worrying about a long drive home. We walked back from the concert and slept super late the next morning. I had to work that afternoon, but Josh grabbed me breakfast before delivering me to my door. Overnight dates for the win!
Hands down, best birthday date ever.
