Our next post for National Standinaqueue Day is from the lovely Hsien, who reports on a queue from lively London Town:
We went to the Four Seasons restaurant in London at 84 Queensway. It’s one of the best roast duck restaurants in the city and is so popular, the queue fills up the entrance way and spills over onto the street during weekends.
Fearing the same fate on weekdays, I made sure to get to Four Seasons at 11:50 this morning. Lo and behold, these three Japanese guys (and my mother-in-law behind them) were already there! Sadly, no proper queue ever formed during our meal so the mob that I had hoped to capture never materialized. RATS!! I shall endeavor to find a more impressive queue for standinaqueue fans next time.
Oh, and I should add that for all the talk about the Japanese being terrific queuer-uppers, these three were just milling around. The atrocity! I’ve never seen anything like it during my five years in Japan.
