Early Bday Celebration

Last weekend Terri took me out for a little pre bday celebration. We went to a really rad dinner put on by Souper Jenny and her Underground Dinner Club. Terri sent in a E-mail a couple months ago to Souper Jenny to get invited to one of her exclusive dinner clubs. These dinners are by invite only and only 20 - 30 people get to go for each party. Just so happens that she got the invite to one right before my bday!

The location of the dinner was the Oakland Cemetary and the suprise chef was Richard Blais of Top Chef and Iron Chef fame. He is also the Creative Director at Flip Burger Boutique here in Atlanta. So the dinner was in a great pre hallowenn location and the chef is one of my favorites. To top it off we are "Required" to where black.....I think I have that covered.

Check out the pics below of the courses menu and what not. Again the dinner was super fun and REALLY good. Despite the 30 - 40 degree weather, we ate outside, Terri and I loved it. Thanks Cook, I couldnt have asked for more!!!!

Me, Richard Blais and Terri

Why I Love Direct TV

For those of you that dont know Terri and I decided to cancel our comcast cable the other week. We got sick of paying alot for crap service, crap reception and a crap cable box that kept going out of service.

So we decided to trade it in for the dish. We got one of the basic Direct TV packages and added the NFL ticket. So I get to watch every NFL game in all its glory every week. That reason itself is more than enough for any guy in his right mind to love his new cable service.

But wait...there's more. The glorious antenna on our roof gives us much more in the way of sporting events. For instance I am currently flipping back an forth between 3 Hockey games and 3 College Football games. And if I liked Basketball I could be watching two NBA preseason games, but I dont. And just for good measure there are 3 College Football games and 2 Hockey games that will strt within the hour.......that said why am I on the computer........later!
