Mensagem:  Hi Dale,

I think it's to do with wedding reception, for example, where you either have buffet or sitting down.

Look at this:

Full-Service Dinner Receptions

Serving A Traditional Meal

Wedding receptions with full-service dinners, or sit down dinners as they are sometimes called, customarily take place between 6 pm and 9 pm in the evening hours.

Traditionally a cocktail hour proceeds the sit-down dinner, during which time waitstaff circulate the room with champagne and hors d'oeuvres, while guests mingle and await the bridal party's return from taking wedding pictures. The cocktail hour typically lasts between 1-hour and 1 hours.


I think this is hilarious. But I just had a sip of a homemade cassis liqueur.... made by one of our villagers.... this place is famous for barley wine and things like that. Do you have them in the States?
