God Bless America, it's dinner at Chef's! cont'd
Our lovely server-
She was Parisienne, so sweet. Of course, because I was wearing my Bday button (to which my kids constantly said, It's not your BIRTHDAY!!!!!), a group of 7 or so handsome, handsome hot waiters (and the very pretty Parisienne) surrounded me and sang Happy Birthday when they brought me ice cream. Here are all the photos Pods took.
I know! So, sorry, tracy- no hot waiters for YOU!
At this point, I said, "Wasn't that nice...all of them singing?" and Pods said to Tyler, "Hey! I know what singing YOU could do! I'll pay you $50 to stand on your chair right now and sing God Bless America!"
I am sure you are aware, but in case you are not, America and France have a....diverse relationship. It's complicated. (Of course, I am not one of these people- largely due to the fact that my favorite French words are Vouvray, Gran Marnier, Cabernet Sauvignon, Champagne, Tomme de Levezou & Epoisses (which is cheese, but still).....I think you see my point). But there ARE those who hate the French- which is ridiculous, because how can you actually hate a whole country of people you've never even met???? We know a guy named Fred who refuses all French things- even the wine! So we texted Fred...and he said he would up the $$ to $500 if Tyler stood on his chair and sang. Actually, Fred's daughter said she would come down to Orlando and sing for free!
Sooo.....aren't we all glad that my son Tyler has integrity...and prefers to eat crepes for free. Crepe a la pomme et cannelle, glace vanille, caramel jus de pommes - Crepe filled with cinnamon, apple, vanilla ice cream and apple caramel sauce-
Timmy loved the chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream our VERY NICE, VERY FRENCH server brought for him-
Dinner was very nice (especially the singing part...and the NOT singing part) and I would definitely go back- and I would hope Ratatouille would stop by next time, too. I was really looking forward to meeting that little chef!
Oh- and PS- in case you are wondering, Pods was just making a joke. He is ok with the French, too.
Up next- exactly how much can you do in 2 hours? A LOT...if you walk very, VERY fast!
