Birthday Madness, 27 Style!

Well D-Lo Birthday Week 2008 comes to a close and I had a pretty awesome time. :) My friends showed up in force! My actual bday was Wednesday and I had a delicious dinner at Katsuya in Hollywood:
Trent, Mike, Eric (who has known me for 11 birthdays now!!!) and Jordan all came out to celebrate. The food was great and I had a blast!

Last night was the BIG party - one for the record books - I turned 27, or as my evite was labeled, I Turned Fetus!

We started off with dinner at Argentinian restaurant Tango Grill:
Steph and Alek and I took it quite literally and decided to Tango a bit right there!

After a dee-lish dinner the gang headed to Ultra Suede to start with the drinking and dancing - the club night called Cherry Pop! A ton of my friends came out and really helped make it an amazingly fun night for me:
Angela, Julie, and Vince came out to celebrate, and stayed out wayyyy past their bedtime to grind on the dancefloor. :)
"Whaaa whaaaaa?" Josh and I were surprised by something. Or drunk.
Paul, Mike, and Corey came out, and I apparently have a secret. Also, I apparently shrank 2 feet for this photo - will the wonders of Patron never cease?
Trent joined us after I returned to my normal Freaky Man Giant(TM) height.
He and Ang made out like bunnies on the dancefloor. Awkward.....
Jim & Derek came out to party it up!
It's great looking in the crowd and seeing 15 of your closest friends rocking out. :)
"ZOMG it's my birthday! Hahaha! Have some money!"
"HAHAHA So, what are you like, 37? 36? Seriously, I have this psych paper due and..."
I had to retire the devil horns after this. :(
Angela made me pose with this random group of strangers, which was fun, altho the guy in back apparently has never seen a flash or camera before. "IT's the devil's light!!"
The beautiful BFF's Helen and Joanne came out to celebrate!
Oregon Homegirl Julie Miss Flava makes a triumphant return!

Warning: LOTS of drinks were had. LOTS on tongue in the following shots... ahem...
Julie's pretending she doesn't know Vince, but really, Prada won't help you there.
I think Ang is throwing a gang sign, you never know with those LA girls.
Jeff, Ben, and Raph all came up from San Diego to party! :) They rock - they even drove back that night! I know, I have the best friends...
"Here's lookin at you, kid."
I think Raph was shocked by something here - he gets the award for Best Style of the night!
That's my babygirl!!!
Speaking of babygirls, the beautiful Yasmin came out to party!! :) We had a blast dancing!
Me and T! While Jeff looks a little angry - he hates the stalkarazzi...
Unless they are snapping him! JJ in da hizzy!
People kept buying me shots and drinks and shots and drinks and... Well let's just say I didn't drive home that night. :)
Julie Miss Flava kept saying "Mess with the bull, get the horns.". I don't think the bartender got it.
They asked me to be in the photo so they'd have a token white guy - awww, I feel the lurve! XOXO
Mike looks surprisingly sober and T looks... well, not. :)
My amazing trainer Noelle came out with her boyfriend Chad! It was so fun to see them. :) And yes, I'm super-mega-drunk-sweaty in the photo. And yes, my shirt gradually got more and more unbuttoned as the night went on. LOL!

Well that's all the pics I'm willing to posts on the internets... lol it was an amazing night and I had a BLAST! I am so lucky to have such a fun group of people to come out and drive from all over to party it up with me, it was a very memorable bday and deff the best yet!

The wonders of Patron? Are you kidding? The last time I drank Patron, I blacked out and to this day have no recollection of the night's events (and let's not forget the subsequent embarassing video that circulated amongst my friends).

Gotta say that I'm now very curious about the photos that you're NOT willing to post on the dirty are we talking?
