            Amended Menu:

            Cardbordeaux, Pitcher of Margaritas

            Avocados, with tomato, served as guacamole

            Bread (depending on your views of correct protocol)

            Popcorn

            Blackened Chicken

            Free Range Beef

            Magical Rainbow Cake

            Peeps

            Chocolate

            There has been no train wreck featuring salad, as far as I recall. We must remain vegetable-free until someone creates a thread pitting meatatarians against vegetarians in the horse world.

                Thank you so much for the links to the Chicken and Bread threads. Boy, did I miss some awesome classic threads on my hiatus from COTH! 36 pages over bread being brought to a dinner party... hysterical.

                But I'm confused on the menu - are this items consumed when reading a trainwreck post? As in "pass the popcorn", I'll be here for a while as I read the 20+ pages of why the chicken is still stuck in the oven? Or are these menu items that were actually part of the original post that became the trainwreck?

                If it's the former, I think you have to add "chips" (corn, potato, tortillas, etc. - "chips" can mean so many different things), which isn't as popular as popcorn, but comes up often enough. After all, you have to put that guac on something!

                    And for after dinner entertainment, a presentation on horse marketing by Churchill Hunt Club, TBs, Sport Horses or whatever their name du jour currently is. Featuring posing horses on tropical beaches.

                      4leaf Clover, the menu item itself could have been featured on a train wreck thread or simply been the standby sustenance (boxed wine and guacamole) for a truly epic, multi-paged thread. The kind of thread where people put off bathroom breaks because the drama is running so high. For example, the Blue Saddle, Open Trailer thread. I believe it broke the record for length. find eight, that’s a brilliant idea for COTH dining entertainment.

                        Hey, what was the title of that Blue Saddle and Open Trailer thread. It was in a thread on Off Course that started about something else and is a great entertainment for those newer folk who need to read this example of a good train wreck that seems to be one of the longest running ever. IIRC never got real ugly or nasty. Close maybe but not over the edge.

                          find eight, you have solved the issue of what to present as dinner theatre. But what about attire? Are rust coloured breeches allowed, canary vests, extreme bling, how much Burberry is too much Burberry, or is that possible? We need to be careful or there may be cliques of Dublin-boot shod guests in one corner and those in muddy Carhartt garb in another. Should we all just wear plaid?

                                I don't know about proper attire but absolutely no one should have feathers in their hair or wear yoga pants while riding. Those topics issued multiple pages of COTH la de da too. I was merely a spectator on that thread. I have no opinion worth sharing on that topic..

                                The chicken and bread topics were great though.

                                  If things got too quiet we could all gripe about the bad customer service from the various on-line vendors, then raise a toast and shed a tear for all the good tack stores we put out of business.

                                  Aunt Ester would be the best source for a decision on how much Burberry is too much.

                                          RainWeasley, do you have a favourite song you’d like to request? Assuming he’s part of the dinner theatre.
