... and actually enjoyed their company. And our waiter tonight was A male - his name on his badge was Jenifer Augustine and he said "Call me Jeff." His "real" name was Jenifer Lopez, but to save questions he uses Augustine on his name badge! I wonder if he is serious? The show tonight was the Burt Bacarach tribute "the Look of Love."
