Thank you all for the sweet birthday comments! I had such a lovely day. After the spa, Hal surprised me with dinner atop the Space Needle. In all my years of living in Seattle, I'd never eaten at Sky City Restaurant. The food was surprisingly delectable and the view? There's nothing like it. The restaurant rotates a full 360 degrees every hour, so you're able to see the entire city from your table.
The windows are stationary, so people were sticking post-it notes on the glass for others to read. According to the note shown above, I shared a birthday with many other patrons! Before we left, I wrote down, "you look pretty tonight" and sent it on it's way :)
The highlight of the meal was definitely dessert. I got the Lunar Orbiter, an ice cream sundae served with a tall birthday candle and a show stopping presentation of dry ice. It has been on the menu since the World's Fair in 1962!
