So last Saturday, Kim told me that for my last birthday week event, I could pick a restaurant in Federal Hill to go to for dinner. Of course I picked Pub Dog because what beats pizza and beer? So we head over to Pub Dog at 5:30 when they open and walk in the door. I say to Kim, do you want to sit down stairs, and she responds, “No, it looks a little crowded, let’s go upstairs.” So not thinking anything of it, I head up stairs and make a bee line for an empty table in the back corner. I had almost made it by this table while I was thinking, “that girl looks like my friend Erica.” And then it dawned on me that it WAS Erica! Kim was awesome enough to coordinate a surprise birthday visit with Erica and Jim for me. I have to admit that I was pretty speechless for a while. It’s not every day that one of your best friends just shows up in Baltimore!
Mike and Erin and Alan joined us and after dinner we went over to the Metropolitan.
