My wife appointed me to answer, feeling that she couldn't be trusted not to cross the boundaries of forum decorum. Our birthdays are special regardless of where or what and we do always make private time together typically with chocolate dipped strawberries and champagne. Last year her birthday dinner, which is also our wedding anniversary, was a private party at Fraser's Gourmet Hideaway with a group of 13. We shared Filet Mignon and several seafood selections. My birthday, which is also the anniversary of us meeting, was at home with a group of around 20 and featured Prime Rib. However, as long as we're together, where and what doesn't really matter.
Two years ago mine was Prime Rib at Shula's and hers was steaks I grilled at home.
Typically our birthdays are more than one day events as we'll find something special to do together, either before or after or both.
I will say this, we've known each other now 15 years and we haven't ever spent a birthday apart. That was one thing I never cared what the business demands were. I'd fly home even if I had to fly back the next day.
Some special birthday celebratory foods for us:
Her: Lobster, strawberries, chocolate, whipped cream.
Me: Shrimp Cocktail, Baskin Robbins German Chocolate Cake Ice Cream, Oreo Cheesecake, Very rich and decadent Chocolate Cake, Prime Rib.
Both: A champagne toast in bed. Now on a school or work night it's just one small glass, but symbolic.
Yes, I know her answer would have been more entertaining, but probably rated worse than XXX.
