Go Shorty, It's Your Berfday!
I love this place, and if you show them your ID on your birthday, you get your meal (or a $10 credit, whichever is less) for free! The food is so good too - who needs Denny's? I had The Rancher; a panini-type sandwich containing steak, caramelized onions, bleu cheese, arugula, and horseradish aioli.
Seriously, how cute is this boy? We ended up not buying it because I have no idea where he's going to wear something like this. It was super cute though, and I loved the vintage label on the inside of the breast of the jacket.
One of those plans included stopping at this Antique Mall in Phoenix. You know I love this place because I was willing to spend an hour in there and they have NO AC. It was so freaking hot I thought I might melt! I did find a couple of things there, including an awesome old copy (with no copyright date - boo) of David Copperfield for $3. Suh-weet!
Our next stop was the Phoenix Art Museum. Did you know it's free on Wednesday afternoons after 3:00 pm? I've been wanting so see this exhibit!
My husband snuck a photo from upstairs. :) There's a children's section up there that overlooks this gallery. They had some Mexican themed art projects that kids could do up there.
Then we decorated some pottery. They had painted these pots with magnetic paint and had colorful magnets that you could use to decorate them. The boy was very fond of this activity.
Then we worked on recreating some art with magnets. I thought this was a great idea and may recreate it for our fridge!
Awww, yeah! Where I live, there are three restaurants owned by the same guy - Liberty Market, Joe's Farm Grill, and Joe's Real BBQ. All three offer a free meal on your birthday. It's not uncommon for their fans to try to hit all three in one day; it's a practice referred to as the Birthday Trifecta. The seating at the Farm Grill is outside, so although the burgers are fantastic, there was no way I was making that leg of the Trifecta in AUGUST. Forget that.
