Kelly's 25th Birthday at Sazon

Yesterday was Kelly's 25th Birthday, so she came down to spend the day in Philly. Alex was attending a friend's Bat Mitzvah so Kelly and I were free to roam the city and shop (and stop for some falafel at Maoz). Later that evening we met up with family and friends for a great dinner at Sazon Restaurant in Philly. It is a wonderful Venezuelan BYOB at 10th and Spring Garden. I chose this place because it serves one of Kelly's favorite dishes from Costa Rica, arroz con pollo (chicken and rice for you non-Spanish speakers). They also have a special menu with several varieties of hot chocolate, which we didn't get to try because we were too full from all of the delicious food.

We weren't too full for cake, though! After dinner, everyone came back to my place for some Brooklyn Blackout cake, which is a chocolate cake layered with a chocolate custard/pudding then covered in chocolate cake crumbs. As you can see, it was hard to resist! :)It's hard to believe that Kelly is 25 (especially because it means that I will be turning 30 later this year) but I'm glad that we got to celebrate her special day together. Happy Birthday sister!
