    No, your start arrived 45 minutes after ordering, and then it was another hour before the mains turn up for everyone.

    No, but it was 2 hours from arriving to mains.

    How many years has this been going on there and how many times have people had the shits afterwards?

    It may not happen next year. Or we could all be doing an Elvis. Hail to the king, baby! SPLOSH!

    @beastmaster

    I must be lucky - 3 years running and not a shit in sight!

    Hang on, that makes me sound constipated...

    That's no way to curry favour.

    whichever one it is, that's sexual harassment, right there.

    Can you sexually harrass yourself?

    Maybe that's what morning wood is.

    Oh. It was the first one that came up for me.

    As you were.

    EDIT: Waits for Inuendobot5000

    DM, for next year when you are in charge of organising it - get a fixed price and set meal options up front, and get everyone to order (and pay) in the lead up to the event. Then just pay for booze on the day.

    Lets shut this shit down. The drinks bill was accurate. The food bill was near enough accurate.

    The bill was split between 24 people, one of whom did not have any alcohol and, as such, paid less. The umbrage was indeed with the fact that we did not meet their service charge, which I took task to that the service was not adequate to cover their service charge.

    I can understand that catering for a party of 24 isn't an easy task however the restaurant was hardly packed and the orders were simple enough.

    Next year, we should either have a set menu/banquet that everyone can dip into - which can improve the social side of things beyond this year or have a rule of starter and main, split the food bill and people keep tabs of what they are drinking themselves.

    I have to say it was quite amusing watching DM at the end of the meal trying to read the bill, responding with "I never drank 52 lagers or had a kima naan!" following which I had to explain that it was for everyone, not just him. Bless.

    Also, not wishing to overstep the mark, I would prefer leaving the event organising in the hands of the original organiser.

    El_MUERkO was instrumental in keeping this tradition going.

    Overall, the majority of people had a good night out.

    @CosmicFuzz Its less about how much it was, more about how it was run.

    Sounds like DM was an invaluable resource at the end in sorting it all out

    If others wish to arrange a night out themselves, feel free to set up a thread and do so, tbh if people didn't enjoy themselves then it makes sense to break up into smaller groups. The Curry Club is meant to be a drunken adventure into possible food poisoning and if you're not up for that then go make the Michelin Starred Stop Watch Fed WANKERS CLUB!

    Yes. But not at that same place again. I don't mind the price but for two years running they have literally taken hours to serve us.

    Good point, they seem to have a bit of a problem catering to our numbers even when there wasn't very many other customers in.

    The food delay is good for the restaurant, as they keep on serving booze. Stop buying more beer, if you want the food to turn up faster.
    So, who are these deviants?

    I'll hunt out a new venue for the final Earls Court mission.
