Bistro Angst

Pa pa pa da tralala
Pa pa pa da tralala
Vivaldi's Primavera
often heard in bistros
not relaxing
for the guests
But who's here to relax?
It's a serious buisness!
Is it a good enough restaurant?
Worried tourists
worry about not
getting the
'optimal eating experience'
for their Yens
Do we really want a steak
served on a wooden plank?

Would we prefer a wooden
stake through the heart?
Such questions vex diners
in Chianti mode
(alcohol helps)
Ah! L'estate!
(that thunderstorm bit; glorious)
The waiter bounds his way
his little pad is ready
We are ready, but for one,
When she is,
the bounding waiter will be gone!

The Tequila Sunset

The Tequila Sunset is any drink. Any drink at all. It's the drink you can lean back, slowly sip and enjoy after you've slammed back a dozen or so shots of Tequila. The effects are approaching, and you will very shortly experience a real Tequila-induced lights out. In a matter of minutes, you will be eclipsed. But until then; savour the Tequila Sunset. Short of Draino, it doesn't really make any difference what's in the glass.

Oyster Card

The 'Oyster Card' promises more than it delivers. Shades of Lewis Carrol, or Wilton's Restaurant; "I say, could I get a squeeze of lemon and a sprinkling of black pepper on my Oyster Card?"


None of that.
