Whale Week 2013

One Sunday night at Cuvee, when they're usually closed, a whale entered by running and breaking through a paper barricade of signs bearing his name. Everyone in the crowd held a cutout of his face as he took his place on a throne in the center of the VIP area and was crowned. He demanded that only champagne be served and the only food would be a giant turkey leg for him. After the event, a fleet of SUVs escorted him to his hotel, like a presidential parade. This according to GM Michael Taxy.
