Default Last brunch before Ramadan

OK, in honour of Scamp's failed but noble effort of organising a second BE night out in as many months, I'm going to try for a "BE Last Brunch before Ramadan" (for the hard of learning that is Friday 29th)

A brunch isn't a bad idea - they are only 3 hours long and we all have a natural exit route if it turns out that we are all internet weirdos. If, heaven forbid, we are actually normal then we can carry on getting pissed or move on to an orgy at Villa de la Millhouse.

Being a brunch virgin myself, I'm not going to suggest a place. Although I am tempted by the down beat Waxy's (LH may show up or just be in there) or the beertastic Belgium Bar as suggested by Spugsy on the other thread.

Let's have a show of strength to celebrate the start of the holy month, crazy driving, bad breath and the ridiculously short working day that Ramadan entails (for me at least) ...

Talking of an orgy at your place - how did you get on with the friend in the swimsuit? Did you give her a large portion?

May be, will confirm nearer the time.

Despite last night’s failure, I had a decent night at the Dubliner's –Le Meridien hotel with my Belgian friend and a few work colleagues. The only disappointment was that the hookers were at the Jules bar whilst we were surrounded by moustached pot-bellied men at dubs.
