Happy Friday, Toasties! It’s my dad’s birthday, so I’d like to wish a very happy birthday to the man who is never too busy to take my calls or challenge my deeply held beliefs about Star Trek and sports. Nicole is in New York for ONE DAY ONLY to see Hamilton (feel free to register your envy in the comments), The Bartender has the week off, and I’ll be cutting out of here early for back-to-back back-to-school open houses, so please talk amongst yourselves! What are your weekend plans? Will you be eating any cake, birthday or otherwise? Clear eyes, full hearts, open thread!
Nicole Chung is the Managing Editor of The Toast.
