A birthday dinner

We had an absolute BLAST Friday night.

There is an amazing restaurant in Albuquerque called Tucanos. It is a Brazilian grill place. There are only 4 of these restaurants: Albuquerque, Boise, and 2 in Utah.

If you sign up for the birthday club you receive a FREE meal during the month of your birthday. Totally cool.

What we love about it is it is all you can eat as well as a "salad buffet" that totally rocks. You sit at your table and cute servers come by with these hunkin' skewers of meat varieties and grilled veggies. You get what you want. So yummy!

Since Ryan's birthday is this month I contacted a bunch of our friends and invited them to join us. Several of them did... around 12 or so. We ate, and ate, and joked, talked, ate some more, and laughed abundantly.

I even got the servers/waitresses to come over and sing their birthday song to Ryan. He enjoyed it and was shaking the instrument they handed him like a pro! It was hilarious!

After nearly everyone left we sat and talked with 2 of our friends for more than an hour... by then we could actually walk out to the car!

All in all it was a great night and Ryan said it was probably the best birthday dinner, if not the best birthday, he has ever had. We have made some amazing friends here, that's for sure.

Too bad there is no Tucanos in Ohio...

  1. Thank you so much for inviting us! We had a great time. I hope you will return the "favor" when Mike's birthday club thing arrives in the mail. :)

    On your more recent post which I was unable to comment on (weird, I know). I'm sorry you were sick. :( There is definitely something going around . . . a few times. This week is the third week I've had the SAME stomach bug.
