I am celebrating my 50-something birthday with 15 people this Sunday night. I would like to go somewhere casual and lots of fun. I thought of places like "The Great Greek", or perhaps a place with singing waiters. Does anyone know if that even exists? Anybody have any suggestions of a real fun spot for an adult birthday?

        That was my first thought -- followed by "I wonder if she means singing because that's part of the restaurant's schtick, or singing because they're hoping desperately to get discovered." If the latter, Miceli's is your goal.

          detest this place but the waiters @ C&O seems to be always singing:

          personally, it annoys to no end...

          not singing, but there's belly dancers at Marrakesh (moroccan). Dinner is served family style and you can reserve a private room. I really enjoy this place.

            You can also get belly dancers at Moun of Tunis in Hollywood. better food, too, IMHO

            You can go to the Thai Palms and see Thai Elvis!

              THAT sounds markedly better than singing waiters.

              Well done.

                dar maghreb, albeit more expensive, has belly dancers as well, and IMO is a lot nicer than mouns.

                second the recs for moun of tunis or palms thai - they were my exact thoughts when i saw the post.

                if you want greek, there's also taverna tony in malibu

              I think I would rather wear no pants, plastic underwear, and soleless shoes at a construction site, than encounter a singing waiter..

                Marouch has singing waiters. The Lebanese version of Happy Birthday is quite catchy.
