"PROBABLY THE WORST THING I EVER DID"
"I hate to go out to dinner, period! I had a million excuses.

The food's no good. The food's good, but over-priced. The
food's o.k., but the place is too far. The food and music are
lousy. The service is horrible. Last week I ran out of excuses."

THE JEWISH NEWS

oo many times,
parents of bar mitzvah
boys use the reception
to entertain people the young-
ster doesn't even know and it
turns out that the kids would
enjoy the evening more stay-
ing home watching some-
thing good on TV while
eating a pizza.
This wasn't the case for
young Michael Brent Koffron,
whose parents, Paulette and
Robert Koffron, made certain
it was his party at Somerset
Inn's beautiful ballroom, W.
Big Beaver in Troy.
Two dinners . . . one served
to adults . . . and a sumptuous
buffet table for Mike and his
friends made the evening one
for all to enjoy . . . Even a
Fenby-Stein group played
music for all ages . . . and
didn't neglect danceables to
accommodate the youngsters
. . . While the band took a
couple of breaks, Mike's guys
'n gals bent under the limbo
pole to recorded music.
Wall above buffet table had
neon sign, "Mike's Ski Lodge"
. . . and centerpieces at tables
had skiing poles.
Whoever did the decorating
can take credit for a master-
ful job . . . The elegance of
Somerset Inn's ballroom is
such that deserves simplicity
so as not to take away from its
very lovely decor . . . easily
one of the finest around.
Paul and Florence Boraks'
daughter and son-in-law,
Brenda and Ira Levy, were
still at Metro Airport waiting
for their charter plane to be
okayed for flight to Acapulco
. . . Word came that the plan
would finally take off at 8
p.m. . . . A bit reminiscent of
Paul and Florence going to
Las Vegas on 50th anniver-
sary over five years ago .. .
Their plane set for 9 a.m.
didn't leave until 9 p.m. or
thereabouts that evening.
Hora danced by many as
Mike was carried about on a
chair much like the bride and
groom at an Orthodox wed-
ding . . . Mother Paulette do-
ing her Tina Turner impres-
sion backed by hubby Bob and
mom Marion Grant as Aunt
Loretta joined in the dance.
Belle Robinson, Mike's
great-great aunt looking so
good . . . Steve Fisher,
bossman at AAA Produc-
tions, helping friend Barry
Grant, Mike's uncle, with the
video taking . . . Still photog
Chuck Lieberman getting
smiles without cheese . . .

Elmer and Hilda Raskin look-
ing younger . . . Dr. Felix
Rosenwach and Lillian
Hirschfield a regular item of
togetherness.
Another chapter in the ac-
complishments of Mike's
grandparents Marion and Jay
as they ride the rapids of life
with happiness and sorrow.
Very good food and service
. . . both Judy Frankel trade-
markss at Somerset Inn .. .
and a sweet table that takes
a back seat to very few.
So many strange faces at a
family affair . . . Could count
those at the Raskin table on

Both the young
and the adults had
an enjoyable time.

one hand as another arm of
the clan had a simcha . . . But
a real good time had by all .. .
Evening before, Michael read
from the Torah at Temple
Shir Shalom and sent the
usual chills down many backs
as he gave a perfect perfor-
mance upon entrance into
manhood.
CONGRATS . . . to Gary
Schwartz . . . on his 28th
birthday.
YUPPY PUPPY machine
for $59.95 that lets dogs
dispense their own treats? .. .
A kitty video with chirping
and fluttering birds for
$19.95? . . . Both are actual
items by Specialty Pup Sup-
plies who say University of
Michigan and Michigan State
University jogging suits,
sweaters and caps are also
popular items with pup
owners.
I can just see our dog Coco
allowed to take his own treats!
CONGRATS . . . to Dolores
and Merrill Gordon .. . on
their 25th anniversary . . .
Four-day celebration of
togetherness was in Bal Har-
bor, Fla., where Dolores and
Merrill spend their winters.
SEEING SIGNS . . . at
Morrie's Sunoco service sta-
tion, 10 Mile and Southfield
. . . on one of their tow trucks
. . . "Our business is picking
up."
FIRST OF Alan Teitel's
"ins" on his "Teitel's Trends
For The 1990's" is World War
II nostalgia . . . "The 50th an-
niversary of the Big One,"
says Alan, "brings back into
fashion the music and style of
the '40s. Women will wear
their hair longer and in 'page
boys: Short coats, the 'boxy'
look, the military and
nautical looks in clothing, are
the rage, as are khaki, navy,
black and bright colors." E
