Up until last year, I was a total princess brat about my birthday. With my Year Of Weddings, I just didn’t have the energy and I tried to skip it all together. Even so, I ended up with a low-key bottomless pizza brunch with some of my closest pals and a v silly trip to Mission and Mad Hatter.
It’s no secret that I have a deep and unending love for Mission’s happy hour. Since my birthday is the day before St. Patrick’s Day, I wanted to go grab a drink there on the 17th to celebrate. A couple pitchers and a chorizo quesadilla later, we thought it would be brilliant to head down the block and split a Mad Hatter hat full o’ alcohol. I ended up wishing everyone a very happy Patrick De Queso and now I want to make it a tradition to head to my favorite Mexican spot on/ around my birthday/ St. Patrick’s Day. Makes sense, huh? Whatever.
This year, Mission and I are sharing a birthday party on the 16th. I’ll be working all day because it’s, like, on a Thursday, so no uber-cute St. Patrick’s Day gear for me. But if you’re doing something fun that weekend you probably need a fun top or a little something green so you don’t get pinched.
