B-Day Celebrations

I had a great birthday yesterday... My son Eric was born the day before my 30th b-day and so we often have been able to "team up" birthday celebrations. Even better this year was the 3 day celebration which was prompted by a Sat/Sun birthday weekend.

On Friday night we went to the Copacabana Brazilian Steakhouse. They specialize in a Brazilian style of dining known as churrascaria de rodizio. There is a vast variety of all you can eat salad bar, hot buffet, and barbecued meats carved table side. It is truly a meat lovers paradise. There is also a huge salad bar and several hot dishes. Food at its finest - in both quantity and quality.

The big feature is that they bring big hunks of meat tableside and slice off pieces for you to grab with your own personal little tongs which are on a small plate at the table. After slicing off a bunch of slices they return the meat (it still on the spit) back to the BBQ for a few minutes to sear the outer section before resuming the table side slicing.

The meat was fabulous and there was a great variety and styles of beef, pork, lamb, veal and chicken. Even BBQ pineapple for desert!

During the dinner there was a brief show which included two Brazilian dancers doing their thing.
The Sunday celebration included a fabulous meal (thanks to the efforts of David and Maria) with a few friends and family.  It was nice to have a weekend of food, fun, family and friends.

I have to close with the BEST ALL Time Birthday song ever.  Happy Birthday to all those August Birthday pals of mine!


  1. Good song :-) When I used to send out Hallmark Smilebox birthday greetings, I always added this song to the "card". I'm happy that you had such a nice birthday.

  2. I just wrote somewhere else a day or two ago that August is a popular birthday month. It is almost scary for me that I know so many women who have an August birthday.

    Whatever .... Peggy, a sincere, belated, happy birthday to you and to your son. It sounds like you had a fabulous time, and it makes me very happy for you. I know you still are smiling about your evening.

  3. Thanks for popping by guys and for the birthday wishes! It is a great b-day song, eh Linda - much better than the conventional Happy BDay song!

    Fram, yes, I am still smiling! But then for the most part I am always smiling... :)
