My husbands big birthday!

Gabe's 31st birthday was this past week, and we had a wonderful time attempting to extend the celebration as much as possbible. Friday night, we went to dinner and had an absolutely fantastic time at Capital Grill downtown. I had eaten there back in the day in Dallas, but I never realized how great their service was.

They were so accomadating, and I still can't believe how above and beyond they went. We got to the table and there was confetti with a hand written card (I told them it was his birthday when I made reservations). Then, the chef brought out a palate cleanser of shrimp and asparagus with yummy champagne! We ordered calamari, which was to die for smothered in peppers. But, our favorite part of the dinner wasn't even the steak or my swordfish, it was the sides ..... lobster macaroni and cheese and au gratin potatoes. They had to take the mac' and cheese off the menu because it is now required to put the amount of calories on the menu, and they assumed it would not be as appealing with the calories listed. Crazy!! (Is this a new rule for just WA or are they doing it in TX too?)

Lastly, the server stopped by while Gabe ran to the bathroom to see if he preferred chocolate or coconut desert. I said he is a chocolate, chocolate, chocolate guy. So, he brought Gabe two kinds of chocolate deserts complementary, and he took our picture with the restaurants camera without us even asking! Wow, what amazing service!!

He was a satisfied birthday boy who was full as a tick by the end of the night!

We went to Benihana's Saturday night to celebrate Gabe's birthday and our two good friends, Cassy and Nate. We always enjoy hanging out with this group of friends, and it was a really fun night downtown. Yes, two nights in a row in downtown Seattle is bigtime for us :)
