My weekend will consist of flying back from Washington to Dubai. Must say, it's quite pleasant in the unfree world at the moment. Just going for a coffee with plastic milk after I've had my heavily medicated and hormone'd breakfast steak.

Surprised they let you in with that, didn't think foodstuffs of any type were allowed let alone a leg of pig.

I'm doing a 5 hour brunch (11-4) for 199. Bargain Booze.

It's pretty arbitrary here (Morocco) -- I don't think there's any hard-and-fast rules, and you can buy pork products in supermarkets in the bigger cities and tourist resorts. It's pot luck as to whether you get fleeced at customs.

I miss brunches, for the quality and variety of food, and cheap booze. I probably spend more on eating / drinking out here than I did in UAE. There are 3 local beers (which are ok), plus Heineken, Coors and Carlsberg -- all cans / bottles, except for occasionally the local Flag Speciale on draft. Some great restaurants in Casablanca and Marrakech, and a couple in a town an hour away, plus the ubiquitous tagine which can be hit and miss.

Well looking at your tag line, Casablanca seems ideal for you. I'd love to go there - and Marrakesh (La Mamounia anyone)?

Maybe later this year.

How's the gin in Ricks?

I adopted the tag line because I'm in Morocco! Marrakech is interesting -- I imagine La Mamounia would be fantastic, but I'd baulk at £600+ per night.

Rick's is enjoyable, good food and atmosphere:

Nice

Turned out brunch was only 139, too much Shiraz and I think I was helped out LOL

Shot a top 10 round of golf for me on one of the worst hangovers imaginable. 7 hour nap after, then watched the football with sausages, chips and spaghetti hoops. Literally the stuff of dreams.

I'm in advanced negotiations with one company. We're teetering on the brink of committing to this stuff, but then yesterday booked Singapore for next week for 3 days, so kind of think what's the point until that's done?
Then week after my Dad arrives so won't exactly be a good week of food. But could just do lunches and brekkie.
Then have a run of a few weeks where this would be great.

If I don't time it right, I'll waste it. I need a decent run at something to get it to stick.

It was marginally better than the McDonald's I wanted.

Up at 6:30, left at 7:15, tee off 8:40, back in the clubhouse at 10:30 (quickest round I've ever had -- with a buggy coz of my knees -- 3 parties let me play through), decent lunch (monkfish & pesto brochettes), watched the paint dry at Monaco, food shopping, workout + HIIT on the rower, beard trim and haircut. Back in the office at 6 this morning ...
