D.M. Williams, long-time manager at Casa Del Mar, was thrown a surprise birthday celebration on Tuesday, Jan. 31. The beloved manager turned 81, contrary to the “18” on his horse-themed birthday cake. In honor of his birthday, the resort planned a spin-off of the old game show, “To Tell the Truth,” so everyone could learn about his past 81 years. Some facts attendees learned were: Williams called every pet he’s owned “Ben,” his favorite charity is St. Judes and that he was named D.M. because he was the youngest of 11 siblings and his mom ran out of names.

It’s almost as if a real wedding is about to take place at Longboat Harbor. But, it’s just a dinner theatre showcase of “Tiny and Tony’s Italian Wedding.” The one-act is about an Italian wedding that only bride and groom want to take place, and it seems as the whole congregation has slept with either the bride or the groom.
