When I got to work yesterday Liam mentioned the work night out that seem to be getting much more frequent. We were heading to Joey Chan’s for 10c Wing Night!
The tension grew all day to say the least, plans were made, bus shedules consulted and escape routes found. Come 6pm we were buzzing, Frank (our boss) told us it was like watching a load of kids going out to play. Our play involed a lot of wings and alchol.
We all had 20 minutes to get changed etc, I ended up rabbiting on on MSN and missed the bus most people took. So I decided to run (in my low grip trainers) down the icey hill, and then through town. Unbelievably I made it onto the right bus, even had 5 minutes to spare!
We then went to Steve’s Place for a bit, my god! He’s got a huge DVD collection, including Chef and Men Behaving Baddly! He also has a nice Dell Fp2401 Widescreen TFT, sodding fantastic! Anyway, 2 beers were sunk then we headed to Joey Chan’s.
When we got there we were told that our reservation of 17 was less important than walkins of 4. We ended up spending an hour in Dusty’s while a table was prepared for us. However, this did land us 50 free wings in addition to the 240 max we could have, and we did.
Thats right, 290 wings were nearly finished between 12 of us! Along with a lot of pitchers. Oh man I was full, had 36! I mixed some fortune cookies in there for good luck, and then went for our final pitchers at Dusty’s, 3 of them (since 4 of us were doing rounds). Come 1 am we are all stuffed, pickled and stumbling home for work in 8 hours. I had a doggy bag of wings that was office lunch tommorow. Good times.
Made it in on time today, with the wings and with a hangover. God we have a good group! But I did decide that Pizza Pops were a better choice for lunch.
