Every time I ask for recommendations, every time everyone keeps their yaps closed! At least Richie came up with sumtin! :lol: :P


Right balance between the prices and location is the problem. I know suitable places in CCK but then only middle range and up more downtown. I.e. there are a few very very nice places for this kind of gathering around Rochester Park but again, there are rather middle range.

Yeah! And since I'm bigger than most of you, I'll be keeping the commission right? :P :P :P :P

I am bigger than you!



Are you? Ok, then you are welcome to every last cent of my commission.

Oh Richie, I am not that greedy and this would be very unsocial. Afterall your contribution is unquestionable. Lets just agree you buy 3 rounds for everybody and what's left stays in your pocket.

No,no, I insist, I now see the error of my ways, maybe I should give you every cent of the commission and you can buy me a bottle of wine ;)

Before you say no, I insist! ;)

Ok, I'll book space maybe a whole room (probably space for 16 in one of the rooms, that way we can be self sufficient.

Does everyone want to arrange own bills rather than one for the table? it'll make it a helluva lot easier!

Yeah, individually would be best I reckon. Will be easier for "us" anyway, the restaurant? Well, they're getting the extra business now and generating more future business probably. I had another thumbs up from one of our regulars last last night/early this morning via FB. He won't be attending, but says he was pleased.

As you say, we can prearrange that we either have personal tabs or pay as we go!

I'm happy either way and saves us getting all confused at the end of the night with how many each of us had!

Glad someone likes the new place already then ;)

Let's have a group bill so it resembles something of a grannies tea party, with us all squabbling over who pays the 25 cents outstanding......

That app is about the most worthless piece of crap I've seen. how hard is it to use the phone calc $150x1.15/3=

That assuming each eats/drinks the same and all agree on the tip amount. Wonder what the likelihood of that would be, especially with a cast of Asians & Westerners. :lol:
