Valley Glen is an area close to Van Nuys, and, believe me, an unlikely place for a good restaurant.
Okay, I have been to this place before, and their Swiss/German/Italian cuisine is excellent. Last time we were serenaded by accordion music and a violinist.
This time was something even more fun!

We got there late, and as we were about half-way into our delicious meals (think Sauerbraten, and Rahmschnitzel with spaetzli and red cabbage - yum!) when the chef came out of the kitchen, doffed his tall white chef's hat, picked up a microphone and began singing along with the musician who had been playing soft mood music through our dinner!

We began to laugh, but then were quickly caught up in the show. It was a LOT of fun.

At one point, they even played the Chicken Dance to the delight of the dancers!

I laughed and really enjoyed myself.
Perhaps the best part of all was that the whole evening was so unexpected.
