Looks like a great night was had, and I'm sorry I had to bail last-minute (feeling a little off-colour). Love the steaks, and plenty of people I would have liked to have caught up with.
Geez rotten luck about not feeling well. You missed a vibrant resounding group sing-a-long led by moi 🤡. That would have made you feel better and lifted your spirits, hey?
I settled for the 500g scotch fillet since the wagyu was sold out by the time orders were taken on the second table. Bewdiful !!!!
And yes, unfortunately with all the great reds around, I was on zero alcohol ( as per doctor’s orders 👎)

An excellent evening 😀 very nice to meet everyone and put faces to the handles 😀

I had the penne vego pasta (with a serve of fresh chilli on the side, of course) with side order of steamed veggies

The pasta was nice. Chilli added a nice (much needed) kick to the dish.


Followed by crepe Suzette - tasted amazing. I remember watching Gordon Ramsey doing crepe Suzette - where the dish is lit on fire. I was hoping the same, but no fire show today.


The dishes I had fade in comparison to the amazing company of fellow AFF’ers :) looking forward to the next meetups.

Excellent rendition of happy bday by @Goodonya :)

Thanks to all the organisers of the evening :)

Thanks especially to Penegal and Cruiser for organising/OT marshalling ( and for Penegal volunteering to be stuck with the bill if necessary 😳 and Cruiser for the signs).

Very convivial company all round. The reds were excellent .
