For my mom's birthday we took her to a local Italian restaurant that has live music on Thursday nights. The band played a variety of blues. The food was great, we ordered pizza and gelato. I didn't have the pizza, but my eggplant rolottini were delicious. Nathan and Sarah came with us. It was a lovely evening.

OK, so it's no big secret that we are quite geeky and that we have wonderfully geeky friends. For David's birthday I threw a Rock Band Party complete with Dueling Guitar Contest, trophy, prizes, and of course, costumes. Everyone got into character and we had a blast. Dave and Holly O. brought a projector and we had an 8 foot screen on our wall and Dave R. hooked up huge speakers.
For those that don't know about Rock Band, it is a video game for four players, two guitars, a drum set and a microphone. Points are accumulated for accuracy. The four-player mode is a cooperative effort. There is a tug-of war mode that allows two guitarists to compete. We usually play on the 4-player mode, switching off instruments and microphone. It is a great social game.
Happy Birthday David!
