I lived in the theatre district for many years, and so I was rarely star-struck. But on September 14, 1989, my 30th birthday, my Mom and our dear friend Jim Riley of IATSE, both sadly now deceased, treated me to dinner at Sardi's.

We're shown to a table for four, with two chairs and a bench seat against Sardi's famous wall of caricatures. The tables are very close together. I sat against the wall. I look to my right, and not two feet away from me, at the next table, are Helen Hayes and Celeste Holm.

Ohhh. My. God.

We had a delightful dinner, as you might expect. And when it came time for dessert, I got the Sardi's treatment. At Sardi's, when it's your birthday, the entire staff of the restaurant, from the front desk captain to the executive chef to the lowliest dishwasher, assembles around your table and gives you a rousing version of "Happy Birthday."

Led, on this occasion, by Helen Hayes and Celeste Holm.

I was so moved that I cried. One of my most profound regrets is that nobody took a photograph.
