Bizarre birthday serenade

Yesterday Gigi, Sara & I went out to celebrate Gigi’s birthday that’s coming up on the 12th.  We went to lunch at Gigi’s favorite restaurant Red Lobster.  The entire world was waiting for a table.  We were finally seated and enjoyed a nice lunch.  Sara mentioned to our waitress that it was Gigi’s birthday.  Next thing you know a bunch of servers surrounded our booth and serenaded Gigi, but only after they placed a coffee filter on her head. WTH???  What are they smoking in the Red Lobster kitchen that they think coffee filters are synonymous with birthday celebrations??   SO random!

  1. They did this same thing to me at Olive Garden many years back. They even brought out a little cake, but because we didn’t want to buy the cake, they took it back with them. Isn’t that weird? Bringing out a cake and then taking it away like that??


    1. It’s like a birthday hat! But………….not.

      Tammy’s story reminded me of when we went to Cheesecake Factory for Joe’s birthday. They usually sing to you and you get a free slice of cheesecake on your birthday. So they asked us if we would like dessert and we said “No” (because we thought they were bringing us a free slice of cheesecake! So they bring out a plate of whipped cream. Seriously that’s it………….whipped cream! And they had written on the edge of the plate with chocolate sauce “happy birthday joe”. SO strange!


      1. Michelle- that is bizarre too! Once CSP & I went to one of those Japanese steak houses with a big group. After dinner the servers came out with a birthday cake. But it was no one’s birthday! We kept telling them that but they didn’t believe us. Then they charged us $6.99 for the cake!
