This club must be desperately looking for customers because the flyer is about a Valentines Dinner, in a weeks time, cutting it a bit fine aren't they? Cost is £65 per couple, including live entertainment, a female artiste who must have appeared at every venue three times over in the local area. You could say, she's been round the block a bit, ha ha. Oh nearly forgot, there is also a rose for the ladies. That's a bit old fashioned isn't it, what about gay couples who want to book, do lesbians get two roses, and gay men have to fight over who is to play the lady for that night ;o)
Anyway, turn the page over and you get the menu, these posh descriptions do make me chuckle, so here is my version.
