Super Deluxe

February 10, 2018

40 years ago tomorrow this happened.

The night before the wedding we gathered with friends for a dinner at Ballatori Italian Restaurant on the east side of Houston. The restaurant was new, had great food at reasonable prices, and the dishes and the staff were all genuine Italian.
But what to serve? Sergio, the proprietor, and Kenan went through the choices for aperitivo, antipasto, primi, secondi, cortorni, insalata, formaggi, (I never imagined so many plates of food) and he then asked if we wanted the deluxe or the super deluxe dinner. What makes one super deluxe? The answer, of course, was “two desserts”.
Well we opted for the super deluxe.
The days preceding the dinner we had friends change plans and others were added to the guest list and Kenan would call Sergio and ask to change the number of chairs. His answer was “don’t a go nervous, don’t a go nervous”. Great advice for a wedding or pretty much anything else.
We had a fantastic three hour meal and a fun wedding day.
Four decades happened.
Tomorrow we will celebrate, keeping it as simple as possible.
But then we will go somewhere special and have two desserts. And an expresso.
Super deluxe.
