Ditched Helicopter Award - The Meat Company

A couple of years ago I did an event at the newly opened Meat Company restaurant located in the "new" old town in Dubai and have really enjoyed going back a few times since.
However I recently went, having booked in advance, and asked to sit outside. This isn't something you can often do in Dubai and it was delightful - looking out over the lake in front of the new Burj Tower and watching the fountain show.
There was a surprise,however, that the prices had gone up but then - as I'm finishing my dessert and before coffee - I am asked (actually told) if I would go inside now as they had booked the table for someone else!

Bad, bad news - and a DITCHED HELICOPTER AWARD goes to THE MEAT COMPANY for doing such a thing.
