This is a question Abusing freebies

A friend of mine recently attended a 'Champaign Lunch', where he was compelled drink as much fizzy stuff as he could between the first and last courses. In an ideal world we'd ask restaurant staff to tell us stories about fatties stuffing themselves at All You Can Eat places, but we recognise that our members don't all work in the catering trade, so for the rest of you - tell us something about abusing freebies. BTW: Bee puns = you fail.

Chinese or "Western Bars"?
You'd be hard pressed to spend £300 in a week in chinese bars. Im assuming you drank in Western Hotel bars to run up a tab like that. Or was it a typo? Was in China last easter and banquet style meals for a party of 10 with all you could drink worked out on average £30 i.e. £3 a head - private room, very nice. That's about £1 per person per hour. And these were top notch resturants with incredible food and beverages.

We did bump into a few people staying at the "Holiday Inn" type places paying $120 a night and drinking $5 beers - It'd be like paying £2000 a night over here and drinking £50 bottles of beer - pretty shameful when you consider what the bar staff are paid, and quite unnecessary.

Entire two week trip cost me about £600 in expenses, including hotels, meals 2 internal flights, a day coach journey and a half day train journey.

Are you sure the guy wasn't Japanese or Korean? £300's nothing for bar bill in Tokyo (even for one person).

Mind you if the State's paying then it's all funy money - bit like the bundles of receipts you get.
