Happy Birfday 2 Me!!!

Thanks to the momentous effort of Jackson and Shelby's nannies, Miss Sonna and Miss Dee, Miss Ginger was able to have a delightful birfday dinner on her brief layover with some great friends at one of her favorite restaurants, Cavatore, here in the Heights! Follow the link to their somewhat awkward website. It has a scroll bar in the center disguised as part of the (incredibly ugly) graphics. If you have patience, you might be able to find a photo of the ADORABLE proprietor, Frederico Cavatore! Unfortunately, he was not overseeing the house Sunday night, but we still had a FABULOUS time!


Cavatore is frozen in 80's restaurant schtick, complete with tableside caesar salads (YUMMY!) and live piano music! The restaurant is housed in a 100 year old barn that was completely dissasembled in Bastrop, Texas, trucked to Houston, and reassembled on the site where it stands today. The walls are covered with Italian kitsch from the 40's, 50's, and 60's, and every time we visit we find something delightful! This time, Miss MB discovered an Italian language movie poster for the film "Trapeze", starring Burt Lancaster, Tony Curtis, and Gina Lollobrigida. I could only find a pic of the American version, but on the Italian poster for "Trapezio", the men are both posed more square to the camera, and Burt Lancaster is showing a box that is not to be believed! Miss Ginger supposes there was something in his contract that insured he would be depicted a "more masculine" than Curtis. It's so ridiculous it looks "morphed", and we laughed hardest that a lesbian had discovered it!


Then,the piano player plays the song from "Gilligan's Island" and Miss Donna has the waiter bring out these adorable little GINGER bread man cupcakes!! I'm sorry the picture is blurry because they were SOOOOO cute! And then the piano player started playing every George song know to man: "Georgia on my Mind", "Georgie Girl", etc...
It was such a great birthday, and Miss Ginger is so appreciative of those that celebrated with her in person an across the interwebz! Love to all!!
