Champagne and Caviar
One of the events that I was fortunate enough to attend in Moscow was an evening of Russian folk dance and music. It was a very small venue featuring lively performances by dancers and musicians in colorful costumes. My roommate for the trip, Michael Hyman, was coaxed to the stage where he proved to be a first-rate Jewish ham and had as much fun, if not more, than any of the regular performers. The other highlight of the evening was the wonderful refreshment spread that was laid out during intermission: champagne and caviar! Those Russians were wonderful hosts!
