I had a fabulous Birthday and Valentines day. Thank you to Steve for coordinating all of it, including the fantastic surprise of friends meeting us at Heritage on Saturday for dinner and drinks. By the way, if you haven’t been, go! Delicious food, drinks, dessert and great service.

Another huge surprise for Saturday was an impromptu trip to Merrior (actually it was a trip to Saluda to pick up home brew supplies, but we were just 20 minutes away, so we had to go) the tasting rooom for Rappahannock River Oysters in Topping, VA. A dozen “Stingrays” and a pint were prefect on a snowy cold day.

They have 2 restraunts, one here in Richmond, Rappahannock Restaurant and Rappahannock Oyster Bar in D.C.

All good things had to come to an end, so Monday we wrapped up the festivities at Mekong for a few beers, and promise to hit the gym.

Thank you to Steve for such a wonderful Valentines and Birthday and thank you to my wonderful friends for joining us for dinner.
