A while back I posted a blog about a nice day at The Casa Marina marking our friend Emily's birthday. Well this weekend was the turn of her husband Joe's 50th birthday celebrations!
The party started at the Perry Hotel in the suite that Emily rented for the weekend - it had a big wrap around patio so was great for a group - where we had drinks and appetizers.
We then moved to the restaurant downstairs. Yes, Joe & Emily's new puppy Ziggy, came too. What an adorable little baby.
It was a relaxed affair, everyone chatting and laughing over drinks and by the time the food came we were eating by lamp light. You can't really see in the pic above but Patrick and I ordered a seafood tower to share.
18 Oysters, half a dozen clams, shrimp, tuna tartare, mahi mahi. It was really great and we were pleased with our order.
Read on for part 2! Saturday.
