Jake's birthday

Jacob Boyd celebrated his 23rd birthday last Thursday. We ventured out into Dallas and had a pleasant, rainy day. AND we found a new favorite restaurant:

It is (most obviously) called Kathleen's Sky Diner and it is located at 4424 East Lovers Lane. If you go in search of this place, do NOT go to 4424 WEST Lovers Lane, because you will be disappointed to find nothing but a vacant building. This mistake we made, so you do not have to. I say this as if Kathleen's isn't well known already; according to their website, Kathleen's opened in 1988, and in every way this place shows itself to be a happily known staple near the Inwood theater. The food was superb: I orderd the fish tacos and Jacob had the grilled meatloaf sandwich. Both were excellent. And for dessert, we ordered the peppermint chocolate cake, and they even put a little candle in the ice cream for Jacob's birthday:

The rest of the day we putzed around town. Bookstores, the mall, a comedy club. And for the grand finale...

We went to the Mavs game on Friday night (with a couple of our friends). Thankfully, the home team won. And Jacob successfully made it another year!
