Opera Waiters

My last conference in Phoenix had the best entertainment. A guy interrupts the awards dinner to say he's the head waiter and asks us to note a new convenience product on the tables. We do and he thanks us and leaves. Then he comes back to tell us they've found a sequined purse in the restroom--the men's restroom. A third time comes around and he says he's been asked to belt out an aria by one of the retailers in the room. And he hits a high "C."

Soon a second waiter challenges him and sings an entire aria. Suddenly a third waiter--who was actually serving us--breaks into "Tonight" from West Side Story. The combination of wit, surprise and talent really made for a classy, fun night at my conference in Phoenix.
