It works like this:
First, you need to invite your beloved out to a fine meal.
We chose to dine at East Side Marios.
Leave the kids at home with a frozen pizza and a DVD and sneak off for your Friday-night date.
Next, make your choice and order your meal. Perhaps enjoy a beverage and some appetizers while waiting and making conversation.
Finally, and here is the tricky part... Arrange for your Waitress to dump your plate of Veal Parmigiana so that almost half of it lands in your lap.
Try to react with humour and gracefulness and the meal is yours.
Next time, try to arrive a little more hungry, and then you might be also able to enjoy a dessert with your free meal.
