We're pretty food intensive, so we also have buffet lunches, basket 
lunches, soup kitchens (a simple meal of soup and bread), repasts 
(usually a 1-2 course substantial but plain hot dinner), potlucks (still 
happens very occasionally), The Mangy Mongol tavern (by Royal 
appointment), other tavern-style meals, merchants, and so forth.  
Multi-day events here are often fully catered.
