Jim’s Birthday 2014

Both of Jim’s brothers and their wives came down to the Phoenix area to spend Thanksgiving in their condos.  Yesterday was Jim’s 65th birthday (yah Medicare) and Don and Ron took him/us out to dinner to celebrate. 

We met the family at their condos…they are close by to each other…to see them for the first time.  We were very impressed and happy for them to have a place to get away from the extremely cold weather of Alamosa, Colorado.

We went to Arrowhead Grill for dinner and it was fabulous, marvelous, terrific!!!! 


To be honest, we’ve never eaten in such a posh place before and it was quite an experience. 

We lived it up with drinks and appetizers


We had calamari

and small but succulent raw oysters advertised to have a “mineral finish”

The prices were staggering IMHO with every item a la carte but everyone raved about their meals and how everything was so flavorful and tasty.


Several had the swordfish

while Jim had a prime rib.  That’s suppose to be 10 oz. but looks bigger.
I had the chicken (whole) carved at table side.
Even the platting was exquisite.

The evening was finished off with Jim being presented Arrowhead Grill’s famous butter cake served with ice cream and chocolate syrup complete with a flaming shooting rocket.

Even the leftovers were specially boxed in lined personalized boxes with the name of food inside and the date.

A big, big, big thank you

to Ron, Cindy, Don and Debbie for your company, the generous dinner and for sharing Jim’s birthday with you.  We had such a good time!!! It was a wonderful, wonderful evening of great food, family and laughter…..memorable.

Remember, you are loved (too).
