A few months ago, with my 50th birthday approaching, I’d fixated on having a Hawaii 5-0 Party because I love puns so much. Plus, I love Hawaii and Hawaiian shirts, so I figured why not celebrate the half-century mark doing something I like. As you know, I also love beer, so I asked my good friend Dave Keene if I could have my party at his bar, the best pub in San Francisco — The Toronado. So on Saturday night, March 7, I had a Hawaii 5-0 brouhaha at the Toronado, which we dubbed “Toronado 5-0.” I had a lot of fun, and a number of friends and family were in attendance. I posted some photos from the party, but it’s not technically a beer event or necessarily an appropriate post subject, but what the hell. If you feel like looking at my birthday party snaps, who am I to deny you.

Happy B-day, Jay, looks like it was a great time! Sorry I missed it, I even had my hawaiian shirt picked out and everything. Alas… But hey, Happy 5-0! -Dean

Sure wish Mark and I could’ve been there (aloha!) for all the festivities. We simply must celebrate once again the next time we are together. And if that means Hawaiian-print shirts and good beer, well so be it!
Big hugs from PDXland,
Looks like a grand time was had by all!
Gives us inching closer to 50 something to strive for!
