The surprise party of twins Mark and Monika is tonight. A great surprise, actually, though it seemed mean to bait them with a Brasilian steakhouse evening. Instead they have friends and pizza. I don’t know — just don’t EVER do that to me or else we’re all going to the steakhouse. By the time I take this shot Monika’s at home sleeping likely, though Mark’s going strong. We moved to a smaller bar across the street and I finally get to chat with some new people. Eddie’s there, as well as Freddy, Nicole, and Mark. Some new faces. Some old. All great people. See them next year!
