What's Your Record?

Tonight Monika and I ate with family and friends at the Blue Danube restaurant in Arlington. Dinner was absolutely delicious, and THREE HOURS. Mind you, it wasn't a big deal because we were hanging out as a group and generally relaxing, so it wasn't absolutely imperative to eat quickly, but the stat is impressive nevertheless. Apparently not one, not two, but four servers, i.e. the entire wait staff, didn't show up. That was unfortunate for them since the restaurant was packed.

The food was delicious and I'd certainly go back again, obviously hoping that the waiting time is reduced next time around. I became curious, though, as to whether that was the longest restaurant meal I've ever had; I'm pretty sure it was. Have any of you ever had a longer meal?

With the formality that I've become accustomed to, dinner can easily stretch past three hours on some nights. Nah, maybe only a couple times....three hours is outrageous!

on two occasions i've waited over two hours just to eat at the Rendezvous (awesome rib joint in Memphis). so, if you're counting waiting time, i've hit the three hour mark twice. as far as formality - it's a rib joint. you wipe your hands with handi-wipes. no formalities there. my kind of place!

Hey Adam!

I love the food at the Blue Danube, too bad you weren't able to make the party. The food was wouldn't have had to wait that day since it was a private party :-P

Hope all is well with you :-)

The Michiganders will often average a 3 hour birthday meal once a month at a total cost of $75 per person. Then, there's the Nichols' eating extravaganzas...
