Birthday Boy @ 08:34 am

Some of the crowd at Varnish for aaronjv's birthday. Click through for a few more shots of people, and perhaps a preview of the LA Cocktail Examiner's coverage of Las Perlas (as his camera was dead). I had a good time chatting with various folks as we assorted in different combinations as we made our way from Cole's (how can a sandwich so simple be so good?) to Varnish to Las Perlas, where I treated the birthday boy to some Chinaco añejo that was soooo good. More dessert-y than I remember it, with strong vanilla and almost chocolate aroma. I bowed out after that, but who knows how long and far the odyssey continued?

I bowed out after that, but who knows how long and far the odyssey continued?

At least three more mezcal shots at Les Perlas, then something (cherry sour mash?) at Association, then we (I) staggered to Pete's Cafe where I may have had another cocktail (I hope not, but I think I did), and a quesadilla.

Then home.

The quesadilla and all those Cole's pies is what woke me up three hours later and left me at the toilet. But nothing happened other than sleep interrupted. I had a headache for the first five hours of my actual bday consciousness, plus my softball game sucked to high heaven, but we lost due to forfeit before I even showed up, partially my fault.

Yet it was fun, and thanks for the photos!

BTW, the Varnish cocktails weren't as...memorable...with the B-team as I had hoped. C'est la vie.
