Kozyrnaya Karta was moving ahead in quantum leaps, every year opening new venues – different by style, cuisine, geography. In 2008 there were 88 of them – the restaurants of the Russian, Ukrainian, Caucuses and Oriental cuisines... They are situated in the biggest cities and on the main highways of Ukraine, also 5 restaurants are situated in New-York. They are united by the highest quality of service and dishes, and belong to the biggest network of restaurants in the country. One by one the managers of the restaurants took the floor contributing their share to the huge festive cake. When the colorful parade was about to finish, the heroes of occasion as well as ideologists of the company – Andrey Zadorozhnyi, Dmutriy Galbmillion, Vadim Kozin and Sergey Predko – have come up on the stage under the storm of applauses. The big cake with candles, traditional performance of a song about tasty and joyful life, about friendship and support – the anthem of Kozyrnaya Karta – everything seems to be so conventional and expected, but every time this show causes the storm of applauses and lots of smiles.
From that moment the stage was at the complete disposal of musicians and dancers. Eyes and ears of the guests were fasten on Garik Sukachev, a Man-Seriousness, a Man-Rock and Roll, and a Man-Charisma! When one runs out of words and the wish to continue the greetings is still alive, it is high time for fascinating dance, like that performed by A6 show-ballet. Further on the excitement was supported by the hot Byelorussian boys who could turn the audience on at any place – either in Sochi, or in Kerch, or in Kiev at Kozyrnaya BIRTHDAY PARTY 2008 – Liapis Trubetskoy band.
