The Brooklyn Botanical Garden! Okay, it's actually my birthday (woo!), which I also share with Anne Frank, George Bush Sr., and musician Chic Corea. Oh! And one of the Kids in the Hall members.

Andy and I went to Marblehead with Allison + Bret to head up a panel discussion on comics in front of a crowd of students.
It was pretty inspiring - we got to see the kid's comics displayed in their library gallery, and most of them did really dark, intense scenes from S. E Hinton's Outsiders! One just said 'I killed that boy,.." written over a picture of a fountain. Whoa! I like these kids!
♥ It also turns out Marblehead is just next to my father's boyhood town. So it was kind of sweet for me to see where my dad spent his highschool years.
After that we drove into the North End of Boston for the most amazing Italian food I have ever eaten in my life at Rabia's. Chilean sea bass, apple + gorgonzola raviolis (yes apple) and lemon flambe with coffee, all sitting in the open window seat. Serene perfection.
