At the event, held at the Morton brothers’ One Steakhouse at Virgin Hotel Las Vegas, he was presented by a unique piece of artwork courtesy of South African artist Jonathan Schultz, whose work is inspired by precious metals and diamonds, two of the country’s most valued natural resources.

However, Foley decided not to dig into the cake, deeming it bad luck — saying he would dig in should his NHL team make the Stanley Cup finals as they did in their first year of existence.

Regardless of whether or not he chose to let himself eat cake, there were plenty of delicacies to choose from, including a shellfish platter, Alaskan halibut, king crab pasta and filet mignon, with carrot cake, creme brulee and more for dessert.
