Happy Birthday to my dear husband, The Angry Chef, who turns 857 today!
We celebrated this past weekend at our favorite Chinese restaurantâ€”a place I fondly refer to as the Golden Dragonâ€”with a small group of close friends. A huge thank you to all who came.
Here are a few highlights from our evening.
A sweet cocktail with more than a little sting
Oddly enough, I didn’t take a ton of pictures. I did, however, manage to get one or two of the restaurant’s signature scorpion bowl, a potent mix of liquor and luscious tropical fruit juice.
This particular drink comes in large ceramic bowl and serves 4 people.
The small well in the center of the bowl is usually some type of high-proof liquor, meant to be lit so the drink is brought to the table flaming.
The dear Lady Otter kindly lent a hand to show the drink’s scale.
A fabulous chocolate layer cake
In keeping with tradition, The Angry Chef’s birthday cake came from Lyndell’s Bakery. It was a two-layer devil’s food cake with creamy white frosting.
A very special guest appearance
Halfway through the evening, D. Bunnyhunter presented The Angry Chef with an Uncle Deadly action figure, who is one of our favorite muppets.
Uncle Deadly was the lovable phantom of the Muppet theater, and first appeared on The Muppet Show alongside Vincent Price in 1977. He very rarely made appearances (being a phantom and all), so it was always a treat to spot him when we were kids. Here he is with Vincent Price:
