A few years ago we had a GTG in Los Angeles, and someone chose a venue at Universal Studios for the meal. It was so far from our house that we decided to carpool with another watch enthusiast.
We met halfway and played with watches for awhile as we waited for traffic to calm down and the sun to set.
Then we hopped on the highway and headed for Hollywood. "What watches will people bring? How are we going to eat looking at all the timepieces?"
Standing in line thinking "Whose idea was it to meet in a tourist hotel?"
Luckily there was a sushi station along the waiting line, for those not afraid to use their hands to eat while waiting
My pal uses restraint for veggies and sashimi, while I went for prime rib and lobster for my first course... (with my left hand)
Whereas my right arm's plate was laden with crab legs, oysters and duck.
Lest you think I was being excessively greedy, there was enough for all
Tuna and pasta casserole for that comfort food "mom's cooking" feeling
For the Spanish-inclined among us
Remnants of the oyster beds
Empty plates were piling up (no watches being shared)
You could make as many passes at the buffet as you wanted, as long as you ate it all there (no take-out). Notice the obligatory watch photo
Roast duck if I recall correctly.
