Birthday 2007

So, my birthday is coming up (February 22nd) and like every year, I’m having a party.

Here’s all the info:

  • Date: February 23, 2007 (1 day after my real birthday)
  • Location: Antarctica Bar
  • Address: 287 Hudson Street (at Spring)
  • Time: 9pm – Whenever
  • Deal: $20 open bar from 10pm – 12am (you don’t have to do this, so don’t sweat it)

As usual this is a more the merrier party, so bring your friends, and have them bring their friends.

One request, though. For this year’s birthday I had this idea that in lieu of presents I’d ask everyone to draw/write/paint/whatever on a piece of paper which I could then turn into a birthday book.


So, here are the additional birthday instructions.

  • 1. Take a 8.5â€? by 11â€? peice of paper.
  • 2. Draw/write/paint or whatever else you want to do with it.
  • 3a. Scan it and send it to nb AT noahbrier DOT com
  • 3b. Bring it with you to my party.
  • 3c. If neither is an option email me and I’ll give you my mailing address.
  • 4. Have some drinks and enjoy the evening.

Even if you can’t make it, I’d love for you to contribute . . .

There will be more reminders, but mark your calendars now.
