Mike and Chris turned 24 on August 13th, but Mike was in Mexico City and Chris was in Dallas. On Saturday night we remedied that. Chris, Stephanie, Mike, Brooke, Katharina, Brenden, Xander, A and I got together for a birthday dinner at my house. A cooked a delicious dinner of barbecued beans, pulled pork and cole slaw. For dessert there was homemade ice cream and, as always, two birthday cakes, after which, finally, Mike and Chris celebrated their 24th birthday together, with shots of mescal in my kitchen.
