|downstairs at Jose Garces' Distrito|
This is mainly because:
- Valentine's day is my birthday, so if I had a man, he has a pretty big reminder to get off his ass and take me out to dinner and get me a nice gift anyway.
- Alas, of all of the valentine's day birthdays I have endured since the age of 18, I have only had a boyfriend or husband on, well, let's say 33% of them. And this year I'm not exactly bucking the trend, since I have not had a significant other (SO) now in, well, 2 years. And that's probably not going to change anytime soon. You can't win the lottery if you refuse to buy a ticket.
But what the heck! It's 2012, a leap year, the beginning of the rest of our lives, and right now, my life is in perfect homeostasis without a SO mucking up the works! So lets get out there and celebrate my forty-something birthday and inject a little excitement into an otherwise banal tuesday night.
Ladies, you are officially invited to my Anti-V-day B-day Party, part 2.
No present, no drama, no busted expectations: Just come on out to one of my favorite restaurants, Distrito in West Philly, have a margarita and let's toast to the wide-open possibilities. Just think, you could be going through a painful messy breakup, suffering through another dinner with a complete bore, or meeting with lawyers to work out the details of your custody arrangement; but no, in fact, you are blissfully single and looking forward to a night out with the girls.
