So I started thinking about what I’d like to do for my birthday. This year I think I want to move away from sitting around the apartment drinking and then going downtown to drink more. I want to get dressed up a little and go somewhere fun and cool with my friends.
Thus far I have two ideas.
The first idea is going to the Gay 90’s. Now, for those of you that don’t live around here the 90’s is AWESOME. It’s this huge place that’s got three different rooms to dance, you can meet some really awesome people and the drag show is INCREDIBLE. I went a couple of times with my ex (who no, is not gay) and I always had a lot of fun there.
I think this would be a really fun place for a group to go and have a really unique time. We could easily all meet up there, have drinks for those that want them, dance to many different kinds of music and, of course, partake in the drag show.
The one thing I’d be worried about is that it’ll be pretty loud in there and if we go in a big group I may not get to spend time with everyone there. Everyone could easily wander off to wherever and I’m not sure I’d want to spend my birthday hunting my favorite people down all night.
So although it’d be a good place to party and have fun, maybe not so great for conversation.
The other idea I had was to go out to eat at Chino Latino’s and then go to Comedy Sportz. Chino Latino’s is a super cool restaurant that features some really unique food, such as satays, black laab, Chinese BBQ ribs and lets not forget dessert including hot funky love (yep, that’s what it’s called), mango double happiness cake and S’MORES. The cool thing about Chino Latino’s is that the dishes are made to be ordered as a group and then share everything, which means you can try a lot of different foods. Oh, and the last time I was there my drink came in a coconut. Yeah.
After that I thought our group could meander over to Comedy Sportz. Comedy Sportz is AWESOME. It’s kind of like Whose Line Is It Anyway but with a sports twist. My bridal party actually took me there for my bachelorette party and I was brought on stage. And it’s HYSTERICAL. I have never come away from there having not laughed hysterically the whole time.
The plus side of doing this is that I can spend all my time with my friends, will be able to chat with them, share food with them and laugh with them.
And, well, there really isn’t much of a downside. Except if people want to go dancing too but it’s Minneapolis, we could always go somewhere after Comedy Sportz.
So what do you all think? If you were coming to hang out with me on my birthday what would you like to do? Heck, if you’re in the cities on September 18th (the Saturday after my birthday) you’re totally welcome to come! The more the merrier!
Happy Friday all!
