Melbourne Cup Lunch

A group of us went to a charity lunch that was raising money for the children’s hospital. I was rather disappointed. The meal wasn’t all that special – particularly the entre that was something I don’t eat so that I only got to have two courses when everyone else had three. Also the staff at the venue were constantly removing drinks before people could finish them so that they could replace them and so charge more – and so lessen the amount that the hospital would get. Finally a few minutes before the race was due to start the sound system malfunctioned and so while the race was shown on two big screens (that weren’t properly visible from where I was sitting) we couldn’t hear what was happening.
