$$$$ KA-CHING $$$$ !!!!
... well that's what went through my mind, I think what left my mouth was something more modest like "ok, that'll work".
So as we're enjoying our afternoon tea, I started pontificating about what yummy goods I would be consuming that night and that's when the small caveat came out .... there would, apparently, be a cap on my meal costs tonight.
"A cap?", I enquired.
"Yes, a cap."
"and what would that cap be?"
Well it turned out the cap was not to be disclosed, but if I were to exceed this cap then I would get to pay for the entire bill. Hmmm.
This then was our meal ...
|Kim started off with a Bulmers Cider ... I had a glass of water.|
|Kim decided to go for the $16.50 tasting plate for entree ...|
|and she really enjoyed it ...|
|I had another glass of water.|
|Then for mains, Kim had the scotch fillet steak, medium rare with pepper sauce and extra vegetables on the side ($29.50)|
I had the lamb shanks (they were the cheapest thing on the menu).
To her credit, Kim did pay the bill ... and she really enjoyed her meal. In fact I wouldn't be surprised if she offered to pay again sometime ...
