Extraordinary Splinter Lunch Splinter Lunch
Location: Costa O’Doro
Dubbed the Splinter Lunch Extraordinary as it was an on/off/on again event , the back to back Friday lunch took place at Costa D’Oro in Surfers Paradise under sunny skies. Sir Botcho and Sir Rabbit reported that Moonbeams was in fine spirits and his only gripe was there was no Fox Sports on the television in his room. It may have been a blessing in disguise as he missed seeing the Qld Reds getting beaten on Thursday night. The final head count was 19 which included the returning Nash Hash travellers , the regular three Brisbane gastronomics who were noticed keeping an eye on the local ladies breasts and late arrivals, the fire walkers Nasty and his mate Macca from Perth. Macca had a haircut, a massage, a pizza and a beer as he decided to make full use of all the nearby facilities adjoining the lunch venue.
There were the pre-Nasty arrival toasts to Moonbeams and also to Showpony who would have celebrated his birthday at that lunch. Upon Nasty ‘arrival, it was a case of deja vu as he too proposed toasts to Moonbeams and Showpony. So there was more toasts than twin brides weddings at the same reception.
As usual the food was very filling with entrée pizza breads and large mains in deep bottomed plates. Weekly was early to pay his bill after accidentally doing a runner in a Seniors moment when he last dined at that venue. Hard On did a quick whip around for a tip for the wonderful table service, as usual, the owners and staff had provided to us again. Voted best Italian restaurant on the GC in 2016, it is always a popular venue for Splinter Hash lunches.
Cleansing ales topped off a fine week of Splinter hash dining.
Yours in hashing
