It was John's turn to plan, but we both had a pretty good idea of what we would be doing. Several of our friends have birthdays in April and every year for several years now they have thrown a joint birthday party.
In keeping with his decision to try places we've never been before, we started the evening at Lansky's for dinner. Although we had both heard good things about them, neither of us had ever eaten there. For those of you who aren't familiar, it is a casual place that serves mostly phillies, pizza and pasta. John and I each had a philly and we split an order of breaded portabella mushrooms, an order of fries and a trip to the salad bar. Everything was delicious. I especially enjoyed my philly after the addition of horseradish sauce and we both agreed that the mushrooms were the best side. The portions were generous and the prices were very reasonable. Cost was around $25.
After dinner we headed to the Country Bar where had a beer while visiting with friends and wished the birthday boys and girls the best. Cost was less than $10.
