[Sca-cooks] All day feasting

Many years ago, I went to an event that had a course every hour and a half or so, with various court bits and entertainment scheduled throughout the day.  I thought it was a nice idea, but the execution was, well, less than successful.  The site was waaay too small--small to the point that I basically sat at this table all day, surrounded by strangers, with nothing to do but wait for more food.
I did discover, at least, what happens to a human body when it consumes a couple of heads of roasted garlic because it's bored.  ;o)
As long as you've got lots of things going on, and things well planned, I don't see why such an idea couldn't work.  It wouldn't be my first choice as a feast steward, because I'd be busy *all day,* but if it floats your boat, why not? <g>

      Please forgive the interruption.  A group in our area has a very "relaxed" event that allows for an "all day feast" situation.  I was wondering if any of you have experienced something such as this, what your feelings were about it, etc.  The landed nobles have indicated that they would want me to start with a "brunch" type course and end with a late evening "snack".  Their Excellencies want those feasting, to be notified (by herald) of each course and then be excused after said course, to dance, participate in bardic, nap etc.  I am VERY excited to do this but I always want expert input, LOL!  Any and all comments would be appreciated!
