Todd had a birthday coming up so me and his wife Melissa decided to throw him a surprise birthday party.  We got his buddies together and surprised him at the hotel where he thought he and the Mrs. were going to have a quiet weekend.  A few beers later we piled into a cab and mosied on over to the Saddle Ranch in Hollywood on the Sunset Strip.

Pretty good meal… we had all sorts of appetizers and a big selection of grilled meats.  The fun of the evening though is depicted in the picture there.  They have a mechanical bull and a few of us got to ride it for free, courtesy of the manger!  That Todd… he knows how to work deals. 

Riding a bull is pretty fun; they’re warm, fuzzy and don’t smell at all.  I did pretty well, I thought.  The bucking is pretty easy to stay on with.  You just clench your legs and hold on.  It’s the quick unexpected turns that get you though.  I suppose they train the bulls to do throw those in.

There’s video footage right here.

PS.  Learned a new card game/drinking game.
