I was expecting a stripper popping out of a cake.

Happy birthday Mad. I'm sure that many of the chain restaurants you monitor dole out many free birthday goodies. So get out there and enjoy!

I think I heard on the radio that the Silver ...Eagle(?) on Monona gives you a free burger and fries for your b-day, and $2 lites all day. You might like that.

BYOStripper though.

Hahaha Thanks Everyone!

Birthday Tour:
I ran the gamut yesterday - from high art to low class. A hand on the prize and a foot in the gutter.

Afternoon;
First off was Brat Fest. Grabbed a hot dog and a soda (I am a disgrace to hearty Wisconsinites everywhere, I don't like brats!) then watched a little bit of a cover band.
After that we headed over to the Madison Art Museum since I haven't been there since it reopened. I like what they did with the place. Although a brand new space it's much less drastic than what they did with The Civic Center/Overture Center and as a result the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art hasn't lost all of it's former character.
I especially liked the open-air rooftop garden. Nice view!

It'd be nice if the Restaurant served (drinks) until closer to bar time though w/ a full domestics/martinis/wine by the glass menu.
Then skipped across the street and got a Banana Rum cone (tasty!) from Ben & Jerrys.
Took a ride over to the east side and got two blondes (the beer not the girl) from the new Ale Asylum, played a few games of pool, and sat out on their outdoor patio. Although fenced in, the noise from Hwy 51 can be a bit much, and the view of joyful locales such as McDonalds, Fed-Ex, and the just out-of-sight DMV could leave a little something to be desired. But I liked the place and it's a welcome addition to the far-east side. If you're ever around Easttowne and feel the need for a stool and a beer, Ale Asylum's gonna be it. Most other places in that area are either restaurant/bars or sports pubs.

Evening;
Headed to The Klinic for some hard rock bands and strippers. Most of the bands were a bit too 'screamy' for my taste as I prefer actual singing to screaming.
Snooky from Racine was my band of choice. Frack the other bands. I dunno something about their music resonates with me more than alot of local hard rock, maybe it's some Milwaukee-Racine influence I'm hearing like a taste of home.
This is the second or third time I've seen Snooky and they don't disappoint. Their new guitarist struggled a bit more than their original guitarist but he still got the job done.

They had two exotic dancers there that night and a stage w/pole set up for them to dance upon. I spotted a number of hotties there which I was hoping to see naked and on that pole... but unfortunately none of the girls I was eyeing were the paid entertainers. The two dancers were typical - plastic looking and painted with 2lbs. of makeup. I prefer my girls a bit more soft and natural looking. The dancing didn't actually start until Potter's Field took the stage which was the fourth band in a five band line-up.
Didn't stick around to see the last band.

We took off and headed to the High Noon/Brass Ring building because I wanted to check out the newly opened Brink Lounge. Walked down to the lower level and wow, very roomy and classy. Got a free birthday shot and left (I think they were closing up). I don't believe the other floors were open and/or operational at that particular time.
Stopped by Mickeys for one last drink then headed home.

Famous last words; "Don't worry, I know my limits."
