Discworld Restaurant

Well, since I'm on about restaurants at the moment...

Seeing as there are loads of Terry Pratchett and Discworld-based comments all the time around the Halfbakery, how about a restaurant based upon the novels. Rat would be served with ketchup, and the theme music would be the dwarves theme song 'Gold', which consists of the lyrics: 'Gold, gold, gold, gold, gold', etc, to varying tunes, along with Rincewinds' potatoes (served by those beautiful women he meets somewhere along the line), along with the entire cast of take-outs that have featured in his books over the years.

       Rat without ketchup is a lot cheaper.

       [+] And Luggage could be the hors d'oeuvres waiter.
Adze, May 28 2005

       Bun onnastick!
zeno, May 28 2005

       At some point during the evening, peoples' meals should be interrupted by a watch chase. Or possibly an inhumation.

       Meat Curry 2 pence
Named Meat Curry 6 pence

       a model of Death of Rats in the corner. I'd visit but I wouldn't eat probably.
po, May 28 2005

       I would cut me own throat just to dine at this restaurant +
Susan, May 28 2005

       I wonder is ^ Susan's ^ grandfather would visit? Am I right, Miss Sto Helit?   

DesertFox, May 28 2005

       Incidentally, my HB nick is derived from a Discworld character.
Detly, May 28 2005

DesertFox, May 28 2005

       Candied sultanas? Onna stick?
fridge duck, May 28 2005

       The Unseen University Wizards all-you-can-eat table. Rammer included. Wowee sauce extra.

       "Pork balls on a stick! Get'em while they're...um...err....Pork balls on a stick!"

Incidently, I haven't noticed too many Discworld ref's on the 'bakery...must be looking in the wrong sections.
nick_n_uit, May 29 2005

       The discworld series is my favorite.   

       We could got Nobby to not do exotic dances.   

DesertFox, May 29 2005

       [DF] - I used to use 'detritus' for IRC. I shortened it to 'det,' but then most forums seemed to require a five letter minimum name. Hence, 'detly.' Even though the HB didn't require it, it sorta stuck.
Detly, May 29 2005

       ah! a troll <grin>
po, May 29 2005

       You sayin' 'm fick?
Detly, May 29 2005

       No, we're sayin' dat you're really fick.
froglet, May 29 2005

       orders come in one, two, many, and lots...
Eugene, May 29 2005

       Sausage inna bun? Ummmmm..... Dare we try them?   

       We could use B.S. Johnson's manicuring device to peel the potatoes.
DesertFox, May 29 2005

       Maybe if we made a few tweaks and fix the mail sorting machine, and it might make really good mixed salads... For those who like their mixed salads with the lettuce in one corner, the tomato in another, the avocado in another and same with the salad dressings...
froglet, May 29 2005

       And when all is said and done, and eaten and drunk, Nanny Ogg's chocolate desert and a trip to the dark room in the back.
zeno, May 29 2005

       Any slanting floors or narrowing hallways here?
mensmaximus, May 29 2005

       "Eat 'til it hurts at 'Harga's House of Ribs' "
gnomethang, May 29 2005

       [zeno] - did you mean that double entendre?
Detly, May 30 2005


       *sigh* somepeople just never learn.   

Susan, May 30 2005

       Can we locate it on the site of an ancient temple and open on the night of a full moon?
baconbrain, May 30 2005

       //Can we locate it on the site of an ancient temple and open on the night of a full moon?// Er, if you think that there's a market for it, yes..?
froglet, May 30 2005

       It would be out of business pretty soon [froglet] (vast knowledge of discworld aquired for this <wink>). I think [baconbrain] might not like this idea
Susan, May 30 2005

       What about Nanny Ogg's Bananana Surprise?   

       And if you drink too much Winkle's Old Peculiar, there is always the Klatchian Coffee.
DesertFox, May 30 2005

       Yeah, I know what you mean. It was only after I posted that that I thought... Doh!
froglet, May 30 2005

       //And if you drink too much Winkle's Old Peculiar//
I prefer 'Turbot's Really Odd'.
gnomethang, May 30 2005

       // I prefer 'Turbot's Really Odd'.//
You sure you wouldn't rather have some of this scumble? It's made from mostly apples.

       From experience the dwarf cake, the rat pizza* and Englebert's enhancer are all good. (From nanny Og's cook-book.)   

       *Doesn't actually contain rat.
RobertKidney, May 30 2005

       Oh dear oh dear oh dear oh dear.
Basepair, May 30 2005

       We could have Rincewind do a non-magic show.
DesertFox, Dec 19 2005

       Having a Discworld Restaurant would be almost as good as not having a Discworld Restaurant, so [+]
MaxwellBuchanan, Jan 17 2009

       [+]... could make something almost completely unlike Disney World: huge theme park/area
FlyingToaster, Jan 18 2009

       Just don't mention garlic
