The best birthday I ever celebrated was my 30th.
I was alone wandering the streets of Barcelona and didn’t talk to a single soul, no cell phones… no emails… no stress.

But this year I realized birthdays are best when shared with family.
My new Mercadito family and partner Alfredo generously opened Double A to my close friends for an awesome party organized by my girlfriend Kelli- who managed to surprise even me with an awesome Phish cake.
Even my little bro Matthew and former sous chef Greg showed up to have a few drinks.
On Easter- my actual birthday my parents and Kelli’s parents met for
the first time and took us to Webber Grill for a dinner that could
have ended in disaster but ended up being a really great time.
I’m not saying I’m a birthday guy now…but this definitely was one to remember.
