The Week in Birthday Wishes

Three members of the media celebrate their birthdays this week.
We wish them all a very happy birthday.

1. “The Takeaway’s” Capitol Hill Radio Correspondent Todd Zwillich (Tuesday)
2. Former Politico scribe Anne Schroeder Mullins (Tuesday)
3. HuffPost Editor-in-Chief Arianna Huffington (Thursday)

Zwillich described his as a “quiet” birthday. “Painfully low key,” he said. “Who throws down on Tuesday in this town? There is some very loud and totally earnest karaoke in my near future, though, I promise you that.” Schroeder Mullins, meanwhile, reported in that she was at the beach: “I’m lucky enough to be in Nantucket for my birthday, which is how I’m celebrating.”

Huffington was the most tricky to nail down on birthday plans. But she’ll be celebrating at a restaurant in “downtown” Manhattan with family. A spokesperson told me, “Arianna will be part of a one-on-one discussion with The New Yorker’s Ken Auletta re new media at the ANA (Association of National Advertisers) Digital and Social Media conference in NYC. She’ll spend the evening having an intimate dinner with her family.”

> Update: More details…we hear Huffington’s family dinner will be at a restaurant where the chef is known for his local, organic cuisine.
