A Caribbean Toast to My Newest Grandchild

Original post made by Jacqui Love Marshall, San Ramon, on Apr 28, 2011

What a memorable 63rd birthday! Following a long family drive on the Tappan Zee Parkway -- with an infant babbling and two boys arguing over seat positions -- we dined at Mount Fuji Restaurant in Hillburn, NY, literally located on the edge of a mountain overlooking the town. The cuisine was Habachi-cooked steak, seafood and chicken. After sushi and sashimi appetizers, our master chef cooked our meals to perfection on a Teppanyaki table ( a hot very steel grill-top), while he shared his kitschy Japanese-styled humor (e.g. a raw egg rolling along the table was called an "egg roll" until he cracked it open to use in the egg-fried rice dish). Dinner came complete with soup, salad and dessert. The Red Dragon cocktail added to my own merriment…but when the man in a large Red Dragon mask appeared at our table to sing "Happy Birthday" (along with a candle to wish upon), it turned into a sing-along and everyone got into the fun.
