Birthday Celebration #1

And what a gorgeous night to celebrate!  My friend and I met up on Capitol Hill for Mexican at Tort.illa Coast.  BBQ fajitas and chips and salsa filled my tummy . . but not enough that I didn't have room for dessert.  We headed to Capit.al Grille for one of my favorite desserts, and a stoli doli (pineapple-infused vodka; drink slowly!) for each of us.  On our long walk to the restaurant, I exclaimed (as usual) how much I love it here and tried to snap a few pictures to show why.
And here is the coconut cream pie with its macaroon-style crust, coconut cream, and caramel rum sauce!

Those pictures are so adorable! I agree with M -- the photographer did a great job. The photos really capture a lot!

Sounds like you had a fun birthday celebration (#1). I hope the others (since the post name implied there will be more) are just as fun -- and tasty! :)

Happy birthday! Yay for Leos!
