675dhs for Christmas brunch is still very good value darling, 1bottle of bubbly costs over 800dhs + all the cocktails, not to mention all the food that you will eat... I am sure you will have a fabulous day..enjoy xxx
Add on 100dh for Rennies/Gaviscon.

I thought it was 'eat a little bit so that you can drink all you can'. Clearly that is where I have been going wrong.

No. This is the correct procedure.

Eat a plate of light stuff, eat a plate of meat. Finish.

Don't sit around for the first 20 minutes making polite conversation, ask for as much booze as possible and get plate number one out the way.

Then, focus on drinking and smoking.

One glass of white wine and I feel the heartburn (I am not a fan of champagne)...and yes, I have been fully checked out multiple times and given all clear.

Try Nexium from pharmacy - one before going out and no issues at all.

If I stay on bubbly I am fine, I can drink wine with dinner but if it is a long brunch then I stick to bubbly.

Passport or Emirates ID Card: Intercon at Festival City, Grand Hyatt, Address Downtown - all three want this for Christmas Day and/or New Year's Eve bookings - plus full payment upfront with booking.

They all admit that this is NOT their policy at any other time of year.

Malcolm Allison always claimed if you drink champagne you never get a hangover. Maybe it was because he drank it by the bucket??!!!!
