FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 1990

heir life is one big
party," said daughter
Susie Abrams as she
talked into the mike at the
combined birthday shindig of
mom and dad, Shirley and
Ray Abrams . . . born 65 years
ago a week apart.
Excalibur
Entire
Restaurant was taken over for
the evening as over 100
guests reveled in the
merriment.
"Forbes Magazine listed the
wealthiest people in the
world, but left off our names,"
said Ray at the mike. "They
measured it in money but we
don't think anybody is
wealthier than we are in
family and friends."
Billy Rose Quartet, magi-
cian doing some of Excalibur
bartender and manager John
Cetrone's gigs, particularly
that amazing card trick and
"money to burn" wallet .. .
The magician took a $100 bill
from Ray and seemingly
burned it as he went on to
another trick . . . "What have
I got to lose?" Ray whispered
to the magician. "I haven't
paid you yet." . . . To be sure,
the $100 appeared mighty
quick. -
Our waitress, Shirley We-
ingarden, is a good one .. .
She is a former regular at Ex-
calibur but now only does
private parties for chef/owner
Marty Wilk and General
Manager Vic Dazbaz . . .
Clara Pecis, Phyllis Kahn,
Marty and Fae Weinstock,
Jack and Rhoda Adelman,
Harold and Sally Cymerint
. . . the former Irving's Deli
hostess is now hostess at Deli
Unique in Bingham Farms.
Twenty-three years ago, the
late Oak Park Councilman
Mert Colburn called barrister
Mary Frankel and said that
Burt Shiffman was retiring
and an opening would be soon
. . . Would Mary like to be
judge? . . . The answer was
yes and in those days he sat
on the bench only two days a
week . . . Today, he is Judge
Marvin Frankel, in high
esteem with Judge Ben Fried-
man at the 45th District
Court . . . Mary and wife
Marlene make a wonderful
couple.
No chocolates at his table,
so on to others for Morrie
Kaplan, who undoubtedly is
another member of the big,
big chocoholics army . . . Wife
Myra can take them or leave
them . . . Leah Baum with fur

piece draped over one
shoulder, belting out operatic
songs from her booth . . . How
different from the wife of the
late Fred Baum, former
caterer at Cong. Shaarey
Zedek . . . Henry and Wendy
Abrams, Lisa and Michael
Abrams, daughters-in-law
with corsages on their wrists
. . . Yael Goldbaum, Excalibur
hostess, Al and Lorraine
Rimar, Dr. Larry and Marcie
Coggan, Antonio and Linda
Foglio.
A hit of the party was gold
bib worn by Harry "The
Horse" Pollack to save ties .. .
People came over to where he
and Alma Eckhouse sat and
asked where they could get
one . . . Even comes with its
own gold pouch . . . Belle and
Charles Rubin, Sima and Ir-
ving Rubenstein.
Proclamation read by Oak
Park Mayor Charlotte (Ben)
Rothstein naming it "Shirley
and Ray Abrams Day" .. .
Oak Park well represented
. . . Besides Councilman Ray,
Councilpersons Art (Harriet)
Frohlich, Gerald Naftaly
(mayor pro tem) and Louis
(Clara) Demos . . . Also of-
ficials from almost all offices
of the O.P. city government
plus a host of administration
folks . . . Bob Hirsch, Esther
and Max Rubin to celebrate
52 years of marriage in
December.

We kept looking for any
sign of a cue stick, ball or
billiard table in decorations
or birthday cake . . . but none
showed up . . . Bet if they'd
have asked John Cetrone, he
would have made something
appear . . . Shirley and Ray's
Cushion 'n Cue was an Oak
Park stalwart before they sold
it . . . Their Livonia operation
is going great as it racks up
a lot of attention.
This is what it's all about
. . . Like at their billiard
parlors, Shirley and Ray
Abrams had only one thing in
mind . . . for everyone to have
a good time . . . You couldn't
have given them a better
present.
BEST BET Of The Week
. . . Michigan Jewish Sports
Hall of Fame banquet . . . this
Monday . . . at Congregation
Shaarey Zedek . . . honoring
Ben Bagdade, the late Carl
"Cubby" Bayer and Henry
"Honey" Berris . . . Bo
Schembechler will receive the
Al Foon Memorial Award.
CONGRATS . . . to sister
Lillian Rosen . . . on her
birthday.
AN OAK PARK landmark

recently celebrated its 35th
birthday as Hoa Kow
restaurant on Nine Mile west
of Coolidge goes into year
number 36 . . . Four genera-
tions have been served by the
Woo family . . . Such longevi-
ty says a lot in the restaurant
business.
"DANCE
WITH
WOLVES" with Kevin
Costner, will be the private
screening film shown to at-
tendees of Variety — The
Children's Charity "Lights,
Camera, Auction" Nov. 14 at
Northland Theatre . . .
Begins at 6 p.m. with a host
of restaurants serving up food

Family and friends
mean more than a
"money to burn"
magic trick.

while folks browse through a
silent auction . . . Then comes
a live auction and the Kevin
Costner movie.
This is the second annual
"Lights, Camera, Auction" by
Variety, which has been help-
ing youngsters in the area

on Orchard Lake Road was
with complete takeover of the
restaurant for Don Katz's
60th wingding . . . Was given
by his children, Elayne and
Paul Chatlin and Jill and Ron
Katz.
THE MYSTERY has been
solved . . . Yes, there is a
general manager at Embassy
Suites Hotel . . . and he's do-
ing a big change-around job to
make things better . . . Mar-
tin Sviger with oodles of ex-
perience is the new bossman,
coming here from Hotel Pont-
chartrain and other fine pro-
perties . . . Jack Kay is still
there, resident manager 14
months, and Margaret
Wilkinson is the new catering
director, taking over for Mark
Forman who was transferred
to another locale . . . Ex-
ecutive chef is Mark Dixon
. . . and good waitresses like
Suzie Linnan are still at the
Jacques Demers restaurant
in Embassy Suites.

and Saturday evenings at
Sebastian's in Somerset Mall,
Troy . . . He's there doing
piano solo during the week.
