marks bday.

In case you happened to notice my blogging absence, let me apologize for depriving you of the very exciting details of my life. I was no-fun sick in bed and staying alive may have been higher up on my priority list than blogging. My bad. But here I am to fill you in on some fun that you missed!

Last Thursday, Mark turned 27!

I'm not actually sure how exciting that is, turning 27. I wasn't exactly ecstatic when I turned 27, but hey! Most people like birthdays. So why bring everyone else down?

Unfortunately, the day wasn't especially festive on account of me being sick. I tried my best to give him a little surprise birthday fun to come home to after his long day of work (by which I mean I bribed my friend to drive around and pick up some orders for me) so that I didn't feel like the worst girlfriend ever and do nothing for Mark.

So at least he got to come home to some cake, cards, and balloons. (that pile of ripped up paper glued to felt was Makai's "homemade card")

Luckily, we had some early birthday festivities a couple weeks ago, so his special year didn't go completely uncelebrated.

As you should already know, Mark kind of likes beer, so I thought a brewery tour would be right up his alley. I did some search engine-ing and yelping and found Bay Area Brewery Tours. Initially, it sounded a little steep at $95 a person, but once I read into it, it sounded like a pretty complete package. $95 included a shuttle service from the city Caltrain Station to 3 breweries (we took the Sunday tour which included Lagunitas, Moylan's, and Marin breweries), tours of all all 3 breweries, plus all tastings and lunch from the Lagunitas menu. Pretty decent, right? So basically, we had a drive free day of eating and nonstop drinking - I'd call that a winning trip.

As you can guess from the photos, Lagunitas was the total highlight. The food was legit, the tour was incredibly informative/interesting, and the beer is never disappointing. My favorite is DEFINITELY the Kronik. I would also definitely recommend a tour if you ever get the chance.
