July 18 is National Caviar Day.
Caviar, as we all know, is a fancy fish egg. According to the National Caviar Day website, “It may be hard to believe, but at one time, caviar was served in bars, sometimes for free like peanuts are today to encourage customers to drink more. That was during the caviar boom experienced in North America during the 19th century after sturgeon fish were discovered in U.S. rivers.”
Zsa Zsa Gabor enjoys eating her caviar with Lawry’s Seasoned Salt, if this 1970 commercial is to be believed.
VOICEOVER: Zsa Zsa? Uh, Miss Gabor?
ZSA ZSA: Yes?
VOICEOVER: Have you tried Lawry’s Seasoned Salt?
ZSA ZSA: Of course.
VOICEOVER: Good. It’s really terrific on hamburgers. How did you like it?
ZSA ZSA: On caviar, dahling.
