Does anyone know the bird and cage tradition after sharing a bottle of champagne?
Yes, as far as I have heard it is a French tradition known as, "des oiseaux et cages." It goes in that whomever opens a bottle of champagne gives the other drinker an option to take the wire cage or the cork (the bird). You then must agree to hold onto either object until you see each other again (this is usually done between two people who don't see each other often). If upon seeing each other again one person can produce their object and the other cannot, then the one without their piece must buy the next bottle of champagne.

are you talking about I KNOW WHY THE CAGED BIRD SINGS The free bird leaps on the back of the win and floats downstream till the current ends and dips his wings i…n the orange sun rays and dares to claim the sky. But a bird that stalks down his narrow cage can seldom see through his bars of rage his wings are clipped and his feet are tied so he opens his throat to sing. The caged bird sings with fearful trill of the things unknown but longed for still and is tune is heard on the distant hillfor the caged bird sings of freedom The free bird thinks of another breeze an the trade winds soft through the sighing trees and the fat worms waiting on a dawn-bright lawn and he names the sky his own. But a caged bird stands on the grave of dreams his shadow shouts on a nightmare scream his wings are clipped and his feet are tied so he opens his throat to sing The caged bird sings with a fearful trill of things unknown but longed for still and his tune is heard on the distant hill for the caged bird sings of freedom.
