Linda H’s husband (party of 2, tbl. 27, served by N) arranged for a violinist to serenade their dinner table tonight. The contracted musician was excellent, and is locally available for future requests — Sandro Lado (@Downbowdro on Instagram). For Mrs. H’s 80th birthday, she requested a beautiful piece by a Soviet composer, Dmitri Shostakovich. Ten years ago, Mrs. H had also enjoyed a serenade at the ULC, to celebrate her 70th birthday. After their dinner, the H’s were aglow with happiness. Mr. H thanked the entire team, and commented: “It was WONDERFUL.” Bravo to N, Chef G., Chef J., RT, CF, Chef W., Chef T., Sandro Lado on the strings, and the entire team!
