Laser Tag, Great People, and Cake

I'm not 30, but my friend is. A few weekends ago we celebrated his birthday in great fashion: an afternoon at Pizza Putt.

I practically grew up at Pizza Putt. We'd go there on Saturdays, had birthday parties there, and heck, I even got kicked out during my senior year (don't ask)! Back then there was was an 18-hole mini putting course, a batting cage, and a tiny arcade. Boy, has it changed!

Although all of us were between 24 and 30 years old, that didn't keep us away from all of the arcade games (and the prizes that came along with them), laser tag, and the bumper cars. 

We celebrated as teenagers at Pizza Putt, and went back to Matt's house to enjoy a pot-luck dinner and to  celebrate in a more "adult" fashion. Of course, no birthday party would be complete without a cake. 

This cake captures Matt in many ways: the guns, the Boston cap for the Red Sox, his awesome beard, and an NYC shirt in celebration of the NYC marathon he's running in November. The cake was a carrot cake with a cream cheese frosting. 

It was a great night, with great people, great food, and a lot of fun!
