Une belle soirée

Here we are before going out to dinner. Serge had spent the afternoon getting pampered at the spa. I'm not so sure this was a great idea, he's talking about weekly visits for massages now.


We went to an eclectic restaurant. The funniest thing is that all the employees wear underwear on their heads. (Can you imagine how this idea was fleshed out? "I know! We'll start a fine french restaurant where all the waiters wear underwear on their heads. Wait, I've got another one, how about using socks for napkins, too? What an awesome idea. Dude, roll another joint.") I was thrilled to discover that foie gras was on the menu last evening. We had some with a delicious Sauterne. Serge's mom had alerted the waiter to the fact that it was Serge's birthday. I've never seen such a unique bday presentation. Here watch.

Serge? A weekly massage? Better find out more about his masseur's other talents. :)

Paul said...

Underwear as a head ornament? With mothers present?

I think not.

bob said...

Weekly massages are a briliant idea. Happy belated to Serge!

Bon anniversaire, Serge!

That looks like a fun place to dine, dude. How thrilled does that guy look to be wearing underwear on his head? That cake presentation is cool!

It sounded like a lot of fun. Serge is so very handsome. Torn is very handsome too. May you have many more wonderful birthdays to come.

So nice of you to include Maman in the celebration.

Your laughing throughout was the best part. What a good sport Serge was! I couldn't tell; was the waiter's face in a cut-out in that big picture?

Sounds like a good time.

Happy Birthday to Serge.

Happy Birthday Serge!!

Where do you find these places to go?! Oy! To live in a town where there's more than Boston Pizza! LOL!

I hope Serge had a good day. As for the underwear, I can only hope that it is always new.

well that presentation video certainly adds to the "owners are smoking big fat joints" idea. I think it really sort of unbelievable that a resturant could have servers put underwear on their heads - so many possibilities - think what monty python could do with "New Employee Training Day" - happy birthday to Serge!

Bonne fête en retard, Serge.

Underwear is a good thing to wear on your head and then throw at customers when they don't tip.

Everyone loves a massage - as long as they are the receiver, right? ;)

You two are so cute!

I've never been to a restaurant where people wear their underwear on their heads. It could be the beginning of a whole new trend - but I am hoping this is clean, unworn underwear.. ;)

Cheers!

You two make a very handsome couple! Happy Birthday, Serge.

That was fantastic - it sure beats the whole waitstaff gathering around and chanting and clapping or putting some moronic helmet made out of tin foil on the birthday celebrant's head.

Devo said...

You know how laughter is infectious? I loved hearing your laughter all through that clip. And the presentation and singing was funny too, of course. Happy Birthday to Serge!

What a fun evening!

David said...

Wish I understood French better, I had no idea what that waiter was saying.

lucas said...

You guys are soooo cute together.

Jason said...

Ok, that takes the cake (pardon the really bad pun). What's the name of that place?

you' both be damn sexy if you didn't have that disgusting habit (smoking...that is).
