Celebrating Bob’s 70th

Once again we were able to get together and enjoy the day with Bob and Janet.  This time we were celebrating Bob’s 70th birthday.  We had some delicious Indian food from Bawarchi, in Louisville.  It’s kind of funny, and it certainly wasn’t planned this way, but the four of us all got together at Bawarchi’s sister restaurant in Centennial at the very start of this COVID disaster, literally just a couple of days before everyone was locked down, and now towards the end, we are dining with them again, just at home rather than inside the restaurant itself.  Bawarchi Biryanis Indian Cuisine




We could not go into the restaurant.  We called our order in ahead of time, and then when it was time to pick it up, we called again, and they brought our food out to us, curbside.  Soon, this bright sunny restaurant will once again be filled with people.


By ordering dinner from Bawarchi’s, not only were we supporting a local business, but they play it forward as well, and offer free food to all those who are battling this disease on the front line.  It’s a win/win for everyone.  We get to enjoy great food, we are supporting local business, and the front line heroes are being rewarded as well.


Larry and I picked it up and we took it over to Janet and Bob’s, where once again, they had it all set up so we could enjoy each other’s company while still social distancing ourselves.  Janet and Bob sat at one table, then we placed all the food on a smaller table between us, and Larry and I sat at the other table.  Janet thought of everything.


We ordered Chicken Vindaloo, Butter Chicken, a potato and onion dosa and garlic naan bread.  YUMMY!!!!  Janet, Bob and I are all wine lovers, and we all appreciate good wines too.  Larry is not much of a drinker at all, though he will enjoy a little bit every now and then.  We brought a bottle of Chateau Montalena (the famous California wine that was the first to beat the French wines in the 1970’s, and from the movie Bottleshock), and an anniversary bottle of Bookcliff Vineyards Bookcliff Vineyards in Boulder  to add to the meal and to the celebration.  Special wines for a special occasion.



For dessert, Janet made individual key lime tarts that just really hit the spot.  We enjoyed those with a “cuppa” while finishing off our wine.  Life is good!


Happy Birthday Bob, and many, many more to come.


Stay safe and stay well Everyone!  ‘Til next time.
