Ventriloquists and their toys are sinister. The proof lies in Dead of Night (1945).

Birthday dinner

Tonight I dine, birthday style. The one who knows and loves me best is taking me out to do the thing I like to do most: eat.

For those who would like a play-by-play of my dining schedule here it is:

Cocktail Hour

Verlaine

I will sip Vietnamese-inspired coctails at the bar named for the French symbolist poète maudit Paul Verlaine — who imbibed copiously, cavorted with prostitutes and diddled fellow poète maudit Arthur Rimbaud. And if the rumors are true, the place makes for a cheap date. Lychee martinis are a mere $5.

Dinner

Verlaine

That’s right. When cocktail hour ends, we’re ain’t leaving. We’ll just move to another table. I’ve already picked out what I will eat:

verlaine summer rolls with apple, mint, jicame, carrots and vermicelli noodles

yun choy vegetable curry cream puffs

fried ginger chicken wings with honey soy dipping sauce

side of sauteed snow peas.

Dessert

Today, I’ll eat a cupcake from Sugar Sweet Sunshine. Tomorrow I’ll eat a cake.
