I'm sorry to hear you had a bad experience with the
meal. I would think portions would be better controlled

would be in attendance.

It was nice they at least tried to get enough for the folk
that went hungry. 

I really hate "buffet style" dining for feasts or fancy dinners,
especially something as lavish as the Royal Dinner. The only
excuse being that you set out a sideboard of finger nibbles
the attendees may frequent when mingling. But if it has to
go on a plate, it is wrong. I guess I just hate the sight of a
bunch of Royalty and Nobility standing in line with a plate in
their hand like bums at a soup kitchen. That is not the
game we are playing. 

Of course a buffet sideboard where food is provided as a
part of the entertainment is different.

I did have some of the mead. Her Majesty Ansteorra gave 
me some she brought from the dinner. It was indeed very
