I was just reading a totel blurb for an hotel in Hong Kong, as one does, and was amused to see the following...

RESTAURANT: The hotel has three different theme bars and restaurant. Both the New York New York and the lobby bar Li Bai serve light snakes, beverages and exotic cocktail. The New York New York is a dynamic bar with live entertainment, friendly bartenders, while the Li Bai is ideal for relaxing and unwinding after a busy day. Beside, you can watch amazing magicians, card readers and acrobats at the Circus Circus, which serves breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. The multi-function rooms with a maximum capacity of thousand people provide an excellent venue for banquets, weddings, cocktails and theme parties.

Hmmm, I am not sure if that is a recommendation, I am not sure that I fancy snakes of any hue or weight.

I'm glad they cleared that up in the beginning. No bar patron wants to be burdened with heavy snakes when the light ones are so much less filling - they're not as venomous, either. Much easier on the digestion.

Well Hong Kong people are not the best spellers, I admit.
Puts me in mind of the notice on a lunch table that Mum and I saw (and pinched). It said 'TODAY- SET RUNCH" Whatsmore there was one like it on every table in the cafe!!
