Took the Aggie to a birthday dinner last night. Snuffer's. I asked him repeatedly if that was all he wanted, and that we could go somewhere a touch nicer if he wanted. (He suggested Del Frisco's with a devious grin, and I told him that was fine, but I was taking his present back if that's where we went...) Then he informed me that he has developed a new tradition in the past few years, where he just gets the best burger he can find and has a couple beers. After careful consideration and sufficient prodding, I determined he was not doing this to be nice to my pocketbook, he really did want a burger. So that is where we went.

Now, my birthday tradition for years and years was to go to Benihana. My family started going there when I was just a little kid. But in recent years, the service and show have slipped a little. So last year, we went to Abacus. One of the best restaurants in the city. I could stand having that be my new tradition. His burger tradition made me feel a bit gluttonous, though.

What do you do for your birthday? Is it a quiet dinner at home, a fancy dinner with family, a good burger?

benihana used to be our tradition too but we also noticed that they have taken a downward turn.

hmm, might have to look into that...although if my choice was Japanese hibachi or Abacus, I might have to give Abacus another that was good...

For the last couple of years, I've done Red Lobster with my parents the evening before (Dad would be WAY uncomfortable in most of my favorite places) and cocktail hopping with my best friend and gay husband on the actual evening.

I have to admit I've been reading your blog for a couple of months now. Very interesting and entertaining.....

TRADITION:I live in California and for any of our birthdays (meaning kids,husband and me)we head to Red Robin. Not that exciting, but we all look forward to our birthdays.

A couple weeks ago I had what was quite possibly the best burger in Dallas. Hoffbrau House in the West End. Awesome. They also have one of those 72 oz. steak challenges.

I have a couple of birthday traditions (one much like JG's):

1. Cry
2. Go to Baby Dolls

Great to have you hear Adriana! Red Robin is a fun place! That's perfect with kids involved!
