A pleasant sunny winter’s afternoon encouraged hashers to the July 2013 Splinter lunch.
The Royal Peacock on Tedder Avenue was the venue for the lunch. Enough punters for a rugby team were about the numbers. Some dressed up like they were going to somewhere after the lunch especially Truck Tyres looking rather dapper in his white sports jacket.
Carefree joined us on his way home from the cricket at Lords and visiting Prince George and Mum at the Lindo Wing while in the UK.
The first beer of many consumed on the day was from the Burleigh Brewing Company.
After entree papperdams, mains were ordered and naan bread and condiments soon were scattered across the tables in the shade of bottles of wine.
Lots of musical chairs took place as the diners circulated themselves socially during the afternoon. Kitchen Bitch wore a chef’s cap which would not have looked out of place on My Kitchen Rules.
Rug showed his future hash cash economic skills (if and when Blackie ever retires) by collecting more cash then the numbers present for the next big Lotto.
A bar across the road was suggested for after lunch drinks where Cooper’s ales were enjoyed by all. Hashers then made their own plans for the remainder of the afternoon.
Botcho organised travel arrangements for some which was greatly appreciated.
From there on, it was all downhill for Sir Rabbit and Circumference who went to their own after party firstly at Tonic on Chirn for more craft beers and then to Bonus Bros for a Moroccan pizza which after a tandoori lunch made next morning very interersting especially on top of aching heads.
