Birthday in Wisconsin

It’s a bit strange to celebrate a birthday when you’re not surrounded by old friends but I had a great day nonetheless. It was fun to hear from well-wishers and meet up with some new and re-connected friends. It was a beautiful fall day so I went for a bike ride around Lake Menona and spent the rest of the day eating (and drinking) my way through Madison. Here are a few photos:

Cocktails with Mark at Opus Lounge in downtown Madison. (We passed on the martini flight sampler. I would have been on the floor before dinner.)

New friend Mary and college friend Svetha at dinner. Picture of the husbands was not nearly as flattering so I decided to omit!
