so, cricket's bro + sis-in-law [aka zenn] headed in from the west coast to celebrate. we were thrilled to spend an extra night with our new sis, since the mileage between us keeps our visits pretty limited to tour dates + holidays. i was in the midst of assembling patio furniture when cricket arrived home with our houseguest, so the patio furniture took a back seat to wine time with the sis-in-law! the mess would have to wait.
on saturday morning, we picked up z on our way to b'ham. he'd played late in austin + was running on just a few hours of sleep, if any. we got to b'ham before our 1:00 reservation at The Club, so we searched google maps for the nearest starbucks. we came upon the cute neighborhood of five points, where we spent the next hour changing clothes + consuming caffeine on the street.

mr. + mrs. v actually held their wedding reception here 30+ years ago. turns out, there was a wedding being held while we were there, so we snuck in for a pic. obviously, that's not their cake. if only that caketopper initial was a V instead. surprisingly, only a few weird looks from the waitstaff.
