Kate's Birthday Extravaganza

January 6, 2016
So, my best friend Kate's birthday was on the 5th, and we decided to have a day out in the city with a couple of friends (and I, of course, would never pass up some time in Manhattan). First we went to my dad's friend's place for an early birthday dinner and it was SO. GOOD. It's called Copper Kettle Kitchen, and it's on 1471 2nd Avenue, between 76th and 77th. I've been going to this spot for dinner here and there for about two years now, and my favorite dish is the eggplant meatballs- I strongly suggest going there just to try those bad boys. They're that good... 

We wined and dined, and when I asked the girls if it was a hit or miss, they all agreed to a hit. I was pleased with their reaction to my dinner location suggestion. 

After dinner, we went to Serendipity for dessert, and it was worth walking the 20 blocks. Serendipity is located at 225 E 60th, and it is famous for their frozen hot chocolate. We all weren't in the hot chocolate mood, so we kindly passed it up. I immediately regretted this decision after seeing the people next to us with a huge glass of it. Mental note: get that next time. 
Regardless, we all got sundaes and they were so amazing, I forgot all about the frozen beverage. 

Lauren and I got the vanilla frozen yogurt sundae, with raspberry sauce and fresh banana and strawberries. I usually can't finish anything with too much sugar, but it was so good that I powered through my full feeling. It was so worth it.

Kate, on the other hand, went with the opposite of my fruity dessert- The Forbidden Broadway Sundae. Just look at it... it means business. 
It had vanilla ice cream, hot fudge, chocolate cake, and amazing whipped cream on top. If it was my birthday, I probably would have went with that one too.

All in all, I'd definitely say it was a successful birthday, and I hope Kate thought so too. Try these great places next time you're in the city!
