BFF turns 40!

Chad & Heather, Tami & Todd

Limo has arrived for the birthday girl.

We rode in a white stretch limousine.  It had a bar with wine glasses and ice.
We picked up another couple, Colleen and Scott.
There was more than enough room for the six of us.
Opening birthday gifts.
Heather received two pandora charms: frog (for leap year birthday) and a star (for celebrating her birthday).

Pouring the bubbly!

Arriving in Philadelphia.
The building in the picture is City Hall with at statue of the founder, William Penn at the top.

 We ate at a 5 Star restaurant called Butcher and Singer Steakhouse.

"Butcher and Singer is not your ordinary run-of-the-mill steakhouse. An homage to old Hollywood, low lights and dark woods evoke a feeling reminiscent of a bygone era when women donned full red lips, men wore a suite and tie and post-Prohibition liquor flowed freely."  -Butcher and Singer website

All of us were in awe once we entered the restaurant.  There were huge chandeliers hanging, bull decor everywhere and wait staff that saw to your every need.

The funniest thing we saw was the bathroom doors.  The women's room had Little Red Riding hood on the door and the men's room had the Big Bad Wolf.  Out of character for a 5 Star Restaurant, but put a smile on your face.
I ordered a Pomegranate Martini.  
Holy Schmoly, it was wickedly strong!  
I haven't drank something that strong since I was a teenager  turned 21.  

We had a great time!
Happy Birthday Heather!
