After having a pretty rad birthday in Boulder, CO with my family (slaying dragons, raiding bookstores, afternoon tea…), there was of course need to have a gathering back at home. Phones were dialed, people were gathered, and there was a great sushi dinner at Masako. Sushi boats, champagne, and all the lights of the fine establishment going low when birthday songs were sung. Can’t beat that.
Or can you? After fun at home, there was an inspired idea to use a sparkler as a birthday candle. It was, as if words could even describe it, AMAZING. If you have the means, I highly recommend it.
The moral of this story? Good friends, good sushi, good cake… All even better when put together.
