Our evening began with an early dinner at a uber cool Latin restaurant called Rayuela.
Swankin’ it up!
Our table shared some vino
mint chocolate chip ice cream… I mean, olive butter to spread on rolls!
I had the Paella Verde for my entrée – a mix of clams, shrimp and conch over rice with a cilantro-parsley sauce. Totally hit the spot!! I need to make a green sauce this week!
Matt’s fish was excellent too – and came with chorizo quinoa
We planned our dinner location and hotel just a short walk from tonight’s party venue – Canada’s friend Hart lives in the heart of SoHo in an awesome loft with this view:
By the time I left, it was shoulder-to-shoulder filled
The loft space’s floor was see-through and very cool!
Huge Davidson reunion going on!
Larbs is here too! [We miss you Matt!]
Cannoli by candlelight – the best I’ve ever had from a Long Island bakery (not sure which one). It tasted like a donut!
My portion of the night just ended with a double birthday cake – Red Velvet with amazing fluffy cream cheese icing – and a hundred voices singing “Happy Birthday” to Canada and Matt!
Classiest slice of cake ever – served in a cup.
