The Birthday Extravaganza Begins

Last weekend started the cellebrations for my big 5-0 Birthday Bashes. Yes, multiple bashes. After all, I'm worth it!

The Mountain Mama, Viking Lass, Saturday Morning Sale-er and the Twisted Gypsey accompanied me to Napa and the Embassy Suites last Friday. We checked into our deluxe but crowded accomodations and began the party. Free wine at the manager's happy hour, a fabulous dinner at Uva Trattoria with wine and palm readings (I'm going to meet a new man says the Mountain Mama). Uva had a great band for dancing and the bandleader told the Viking Lass and I that our dancing inspired him. ;^D

Next we were off to Downtown Joe's where the world famous Twanna Turner (daughter of Ike) was performing. She isn't famous for her singing, which was strictly bar band, but for her Chaka Kahn-like hair. Sorry, but it wasn't like seing Tina perform.

We heard there was a piano bar at the Silverado, so off in a cab we went. The driver told us a Bush joke and I told him - FYI, I'm sure for the first time, you have one hundred percent Republican women in your cab. He laughed and said, Good, I'm Republican too.

But we were wrong. Although Silverado was gorgeous, there was no piano bar. So we went home.
