Erik likes to make a big Ham or Turkey every Christmas. One year we had a Deep Fried Turkey! (Seriously good. One of the Top 3 Best Turkeys Ever.)
This year though, he wanted to try something new for Christmas Dinner -- go out for Chinese. We thought, "How fun! Just like 'A Christmas Story'!"
We picked Lily's Garden for 3 Reasons:
- We'd ordered their delivery before and it was tasty.
- It's nearby.
- (Most importantly) The sign said they were open on Christmas day.
Lily's Garden is almost at the very Northernmost tip of Everett. Like I mentioned, we'd ordered delivery from Lily's before, but hadn't been in their dining room. Cloth tablecloths, cloth napkins, wine glasses! So much fancier than we imagined! Erik said he felt a little under-dressed in his "ugly Christmas sweater" t-shirt. Hehe! Next time we'll know better.
The food was delicious, as expected. The staff was very friendly and helpful. But the best part was the entertainment! (I'll bet you didn't know there was entertainment. Oh yes!) Our adorable, friendly hostess greeted us in a traditional Blue dress, and showed us to our table.
Later, she returned to fill our water glasses, wearing a... Flowered Dress. What, wait?! Wasn't she just in a blue dress??
Of course that left us speculating as to whether that was her, or her twin, or we were just crazy. We were pretty sure all three of us couldn't be crazy. She had to be twins, or a quick-change artist.
So then when we got up to leave, she was back behind the front counter, in a Red Top! LOL!
Really good food, really entertaining staff. If you're in North Everett, don't miss Lily's Garden.
