This past Wednesday was my friend Ashley’s birthday. This coming Wednesday is mine. So we had a little combined celebration this weekend that consisted of a little BBQ in my driveway and good times at Common Ground in Allston. I chose Common Ground because it was local, casual, and most importantly – 90’s night. YUP! Backstreet Boys, Savage Garden, and The Cardigans (love me, love me, say that you love me…fool me, fool me…) were just some of the songs on DJ Phat Mike’s playlist. A nice little surprise was the outdoor patio area that I didn’t realize Common Ground even had! It was perfect out there – the cool breeze was definitely needed since the actual bar was kind of hot, and we didn’t even have to miss out on the 90’s jams when sitting out there – they played them onto the patio too.
Tim was the grill master for the BBQ. I ate a cheeseburger on a wheat bun (Tim knows better to get otherwise!), some salad, and corn on the cob. I had two cocktails before we left for the bar. At the bar, I switched to beer thinking that would be a safe choice. But then people just kept buying me shots. Whoops. I haven’t been that drunk – I got sick wahh – in quite some time! It’s excusable because it’s birthday week 🙂
Here are some of my favorite photos from the night for your viewing pleasures:
Thanks to everyone that came out to celebrate an early birthday with me! Love you guys 🙂
