Dining-In Bigger than Ever!

On Friday was the traditional Masquerade dining-in, the first for many. Despite the distinct lack of masks it was a bigger event than ever, with the maximum allowed 18 tables sold within 20 minutes, leaving many people disappointed.

Students entered the room through a blue veil, to find the Rushcliffe decked-out in blue and silver. A live band was playing gentle jazz, and the atmosphere was fantastic. A big thank you to all the JCR for a wonderful night, their last dining in as a committee! 

The food was the best I’ve had from Sodexo, with supreme of chicken (or a vegetarian tart) to start, and a delicious cheesecake for dessert, leaving everybody full and satisfied. The wine was also pretty good, resulting in a rowdy bunch during the warden’s speech, and particularly after the vice-president’s speech, when the whole room erupted in a chorus of the banned ‘SB Drinking Song’. For their sake, I hope the warden doesn’t find out whose idea that was!

The after-party, as always, was packed with everybody that couldn’t come to the meal, who (due to a number of pre-lashes) were in much the same drunken and sorry state as the rest of us! A night of dancing, drinking, chatting (and for some people whose names I can’t mention, kissing) ensued. True to tradition, Baywatch was the final song played, resulting in people – mostly men but I definitely saw some women – streaming into the night still topless!

Bear with me!

Hey there everyone!

Thanks for visiting the site. We’re still in the process of setting this up so if you could just bear with us, it’ll be up and running by September!
