My dear friends,
it is with profound feelings of regret that I must announce the demise of this weekly event.
From the humble beginning of two hungry souls at the Golden Fork Al Barsha...to the lofty aspirations of week-ends away on foreign soil, this fresh-faced,innocent little get together, sat shoulder to shoulder at eating tables all over the Emirate...
"food, fun, and frivolity in the afternoons" , was our motto and most importantly...
this was achieved without a hang-over ....:)

But alas...no more...
there are forces out there greater than ourselves....greater than our combined strengths...so great, that even after five helpings of fried fish on GOOD FRIDAY !!The word beer sneaked slyly into the conversation ....from beer, a slip of the tongue became bar...
Bar...did you say bar?
Bar..? Which bar..bar.....beer- bar ... Barasti....
do you know Bar Barasti ??

Well ...you know what happens next...

I'm sure the Fosters is stronger here than the UK...
Wow.. these Virgin Mohito's are very strong...
This shisha keeps going out...
Does the sun affect your tolerance level..?
Your not sucking it right ...blow it for a minute...
Call IQ2012 she knows how to do it...
Is it ok to bring drinks into the sea?

What does sun-stroke feel like..?

I left them,making my way slowly through the shadows back to the waiting taxis, carefully stepping over someone collapsed on the ground, a half opened ounce of "double apple" scattered around them.....
How did I feel....?

Well a little sad,
and disappointed I suppose....
after all it was me who set this whole thing up...it was all my idea...and here I was..leaving early...
to play darts????

Well that won't happen next time. :)

Watch this space....
next event is in Karama...Friday20th....
I think the restaurant is called China Town...IBKiss will advise....

Sherry your choice was great on Friday, anyone reading this who didn't join us check out,
Kabab Rolls Al Barsha...really really tasty food ,
nice clean comfotable restaurant....and of course....39d's Friday Buffet..
see you all in two weeks,
after dinner drinks optional...:D

Yeah, I hope you can come back to us too IQ2012..:)
The food was really good on Friday.
I think IBKiss has a problen with earlier than this...
but if we meet in Karama it is closer to home for him, would 1.30 be ok IBKISS..
?
We can always change it to Saturdays if that would suit people better.
It will be a fortnightly event for the time being and we can decide whether to have it on a Saturday or Friday while we are all together.

WATCH THIS SPACE>>!!!:D

I remember Cami challenging you all to keep this up without alcohol. Looks like you lost the bet :D

Dubai is filled with oblivious alcoholics.....of course this will be an Epic Fail :D
