I got a bunch of gifts as well. Many of them were personalized and I realized that a lot of effort had gone in in putting this together!
The next day, on my actual birthday, I had dinner at my favorite restaurant in town, Little Italy with my family. The good times continued on the 29th as well. In the morning, we had a huge family gathering at an aunt's house (not birthday related, but had a lot of great food and fun!). That evening, I met some friends over dinner at another good place - Olive Bistro.
So, it was an awesome three days of fun!
