I have a birthday coming up in about 3 ½ weeks (April 24th). I’ll have a private, solo house party with my favorite foods and beverages and some dope music via Spotify and Apple Music. I had plans of spending the weekend in New York City; however, the Amtrak train I was going to take cancelled the route, and the hotel closed two weeks ago until further notice. I would have cancelled the trip anyway, even if the train and hotel were still functional.
I’m beginning to receive free and discounted birthday meal coupons from several spots around town such as Capital City Brewery, Silver Diner, PF Changs, to name a few. I’ll likely get more. I am really waiting for the coupon from DSW Warehouse and Macy’s. But most places aren’t even open. I also got an email from Make My Cake Bakery in New York City too, ensuring I am aware they are open for business. It’s kind of moot, though, since I won’t be visiting there any time soon.
So, for my birthday, I will be hanging out with me, myself, and I. That’s not necessarily a criticism. I’m planning a nice menu. It’ll probably be a pizza weekend w/ champagne or Moscato, or both. I think I’ll order from Ledo’s, my favorite DMV area pizza joint. I love their sauce and the crust. I’ll order some birthday cupcakes for dessert. Since I can’t go out to celebrate, I know how to make fun wherever I happen to be. I have a feeling we’ll be seeing more quarantines in the coming months and years. It’s just the sign of the times. C’est la vie!
