Name That Tune
Le Francais is one of the finest restaurants in the city, very elegant, very posh, the perfect place for Michael to ask Melinda to spend the rest of her life with him.

Two weeks before popping the "big question" he met with the maitre d' of Le Francais and planned out every detail of the special evening.

The night finally arrived, and as Michael and Melinda walked into the restaurant, the matre d' extended his hand, greeted them warmly, and immediately showed them to their special table which was adorned with beautiful flowers and exquisite tableware.

First they were served a glass of Melinda's favorite Chardonnay, then came escargot, then the soup, salad, entrée, dinner wine, dessert, and after-dinner cordial . . . all pre-ordered by Michael, all Melinda's favorites.

As they sipped their cordials, the waitstaff gathered to form a semi-circle around the table and the strolling violinist came over and played "Isn't It Romantic". Michael rose from the table, knelt before Melinda, and slid a dazzling diamond ring onto her finger as he said, "Will you marry me Melinda?"

The moment she said "yes", the champagne corks popped all over the restaurant and everyone held up their glasses in a toast to the happy couple.
