Do you ever do any work, or just stagger from one lunch to the next!Today’s meal bookended another fantastic week. Down at a place I had never frequented (Howard Smith Wharves underneath the Storey Bridge), although I had lived nearby (Admiralty Towers) in 1998/99. Back then it was run down and derelict.
Fantastic servers and one young girl who worked our table really wanted to be there and worked hard. No name tags (a pity).

Meal of the day - Kilcoy beef. Perfectly cooked (not easy to achieve with 250 covers). Beautifully seasoned and the juices....I’m salivating again.
Only one more next week and then a hiatus until July.
Yes, all of these functions are learning -based, with a lunch thrown in. I could go to even more, but get no work done - there are a couple of people in my industry from BNE who are professional function attendees (known as Sir Lunch-a-lots) - one could easily do 3-4 per week (breakfast, morning tea, lunch or afternoon tea timings), yet have no business with the investment managers. However, the industry participants have become wise to them and generally take them off the invite list. I only attend function for investment managers whom I use (around 15).Do you ever do any work, or just stagger from one lunch to the next!
