Sara Griffith, who was the 25,000 customer at Kiss the Cook Cafe, learned Thursday night that being late to dinnerisn’t necessarily a bad thing.

Griffith met up with some friends tonight at the cafe for dinner, but was late and that turned out to be a good thing, said Kookie Niemiec, owner of the cafe, located at 2920 Taylor Avenue.

“She thought it was someone else’s birthday when she walked in and saw all of the balloons,” Niemiec said. “She thought they were playing a prank on her. She was very cute.”

“I was trying find out who’s birthday I forgot,” Griffith said. “I thought they were playing a practical joke on me.”

Griffith is now a “member of the family” because the cafe is family-owned and now gets 10 percent off of her bill “for the life of Kiss the Cook Cafe.”
