The five hybrids first came to the restaurant via limousine. Outside the limo was a crowd of paparazzi waiting for them to get out. After Angel popped her door open, someone shouted that it was the bird kids and cameras began to snap photos. Once inside the restaurant, Madeline Hammond greeted them and welcomed them to the pre-party. During their stay, Dylan got interviewed by reporters, Gazzy and Iggy engaged themselves in a game of tiddlywinks, and Nudge found a boy Angel recognized from a popular sitcom. However, after Dr. Hans Gunther-Hagen's serum took effect, causing the bird kids to break out in boils, Max and Fang arrived and had to intervene.
Furioso was located on the ground floor of a four-story building that looked as thought it had once been a movie theater. Inside the restaurant, it was very dark and there was only one source of light.
