End of year DQ Dinner

I figured that since people are often busy in December, that I would moot the idea of having a DQ dinner since we are getting close to the end of the year.

General Invite to all people interested in a DQ evening.

Date: Friday the 23rd of November 2007
Time: 7:30pm onwards
Location: Papas Pizza Café ( – 61 Sandringham Road, Kingsland, Auckland. Ph 09 849 4501 – See - Google Maps below
Cost being: $25.00 (set dinner menu, all you wish to eat) NOT BYO.
RSVP Please email me ( ) if you would like to go, as the room holds up to 30 people.<br?

At this point I was thinking of getting a few people roped in to help (Jon McSpadden, Greg Graydon, and if we are lucky Craig Harper) and running a DQ style pub trivia night (in teams) and puzzles and maybe dominos games. Players in the pub trivia style game will need to select one of their own characters and the ‘buy in’ would be 500sp per person and the first placed team would win the prize pool and split it between members.

August: Dinner for Adam

All the suspects turned up and had a great night talking, reminising, learning about Melbourne and a phantom wife. Adam is Adam, with long hair, no body and rapier wit. He promises to visit again, in 4 or 5 more years, with plans to stay in England at least until he has a UK passport (another year). so we have a place to crash for a few more months.

Food was very slow, so we talked some more. And some more.

Thanks Jono got organising it!

A good night, nice to see the wella-fella fairly unchanged by his stint in the old country. Nice food when it finally arrived. Everyone ordered by 8, food arrived after 9:30!
