Celebrating John's Birthday at the National Automobile Museum

John is not very big into celebrating his birthday but of course, I can never let his special day go by without a celebration. A couple years ago we went sailing on Lake Tahoe.

Last year we went to Cancun.

This year we stayed in town and kept it low-key.

Over the weekend we rode our bikes to brunch at the Stonehouse Cafe in Reno. The outdoor patio is a lush green haven for having a relaxed meal.

Then we went to Grimaldi's Pizzeria for dinner. We like the coal brick oven makes the thin crust pizzas crispy.
I think the highlight of his birthday was our Happy Hour at Brasserie Saint James and boy did we have a spread of really decadent food!

 And I surprised him with a trip to the National Automobile Museum located in downtown Reno right along the beautiful Truckee Meadows River.  We became members so that we could attend the special event showcasing of three unique cars.
 One of them was a 1981 DeLorean plated with 19.5 ounces of 24-karat gold.  I later won a raffle to ride in it!!
 The other was a car previously Frank Sinatra’s 1961 Ghia.
 There was a good truck anda  beer garden. Members were given a FULL glass of beer tasting brewed by Under the Rose. The wheat beer was our favorite. If you live in town, go visit them on 4th street next to the Reno Bike Project.

 And an all original 1927 Lincoln.
After we got home, we had cake and John opened his gift from me--a Bike to Work short. He really enjoyed his birthday. All of the wishes and cards from friends and family and our time together.
