Last May we went to the 50’s Prime Time Cafe during Star Wars Weekend. My friend Natalie and her two teenage kids had never been before. Our waiter? Uncle Dave. Uncle Dave immediately singles out Natalie’s daughter, because her elbows are on the table. He shows us a viewmaster, and asks if we know what it is. He explains it’s a 1952 Nintendo 64. :laugh:
Turns out it’s the dessert menu. Tres cute!! Natalie’s son gets renamed “Spanky”, and even my teenage daughter gets her share. I get scolded when I ask for ice water and don’t say please, and Uncle Dave playfully refuses to answer my BF when he asks “Uncle Dave, where were you all last year?” . Natalie is giggling nonstop, and her daughter is trying to get out of being picked on, and then her son announces that it was his sister’s birthday yesterday. We were made to say hi to our “cousins” at the next table as well. A little later on into the meal, one woman got in trouble, so she was made to stand against the wall with her nose to the wall, and we all told her “Naughty naughty naughty!” She was then told to apologize, when she said she had, but it wasn’t loud enough. She was laughing though, and Natalie and the kids were just stunned. One other guy was made to do “I’m a Little Teapot”, and a woman wouldn’t eat her vegetables, so their “Big Brother” scooped em up and did the airplane noise. It was a complete riot (I lucked out as I got a Chicken Ceaser Salad). The food was great, and Natalie insisted they had to bring her parents back there.
And the icing on the cake of the lunch? Uncle Dave called my then 13 year old “too cool” daughter “Pumpkindoodle”. Pretty harmless, right? She HATED it… so what do I do? smirk we harassed her nonstop calling her “Pumpkindoodle” every chance we get. She wasn’t REALLY upset about it, though. The next morning, Playhouse Disney was on TV and there was this orange little blob talking and she goes “Is that what I am? THAT looks like a Pumpkindoodle”, of course which launched us into it all over again. It was funny. But the lunch was fantastic, and it’s an absolute MUST on every trip now.
