Matt's Prom Story
"My date and I were at our table chatting with our friends and enjoying our meals. The waiters proceeded to bring out the dessert with this over the top production. They turned out all the lights, lit the top of the Baked Alaskas on fire and brought it to the table. Well, one must have been too close to the wall because as soon as it was lit, so was the curtain!"
