We all went out to dinner, courtesy of Mom & Dad, and then home for cake and presents and a movie. I wanted The Gods Must Be Crazy but Shirley at the local video store says they don't have it because whenever people rent that one, they don't bring it back. So we settled for Groundhog Day instead.
The restaurant is a fun family place with playgrounds and oldey-timey newspapers shellacked to the tables and a couple rooms full of antique stuff all lined up on shelves.
Oh, and the big (and in fact New and Improved and very big) beefcake poster in the ladies' room, with a little trapdoor in a strategic spot, with a "go ahead and open it" message on the little trapdoor, and which, upon opening, sounds a Very Loud Alarm so everyone else in the restaurant can look over to see who's coming out of the ladies room.
