Ascent 43 – Gratuitous Birthday Cake

It’s a Friday in New York and frigid weather. We arranged to meet our friends Sharon & Jeff at the favorite local Italian – Aunt Bella’s. We enjoyed some good food, conversation and energy.Aunt Bella

As we were concluding our meal, we recognized a couple at a nearby table. They were in the restaurant last September when it was my birthday. Sue had made a cake and they took some when we offered it to other diners.

CakeThis evening, was the birthday of their son. And, coincidentally, they had brought a cake in also, which they invited us to partake in. It was a first for me to be the recipient of free birthday cake at a restaurant. It was a nice gesture and a great way to conclude our meal. Am going to have to go their next birthday and see if they’re their again.
