3- In a FEBO snack bar in Holland what would a Frites (Patates) Speciaal entail?

9- If in a Bavarian beer hall you get a Mass of beer - one of those huge steins that waitressed unfathomably carry around with several in each hand - how much beer would you get in "Ein Mass" - one Mass glass?

10- A XXXXX XXXXX is a Turkish dish made of meat cooked on a vertical rotisserie, normally lamb but also a mixture of veal or beef with these, or sometimes chicken. The dish is also widely known by its Arabic name "shawarma" (from Turkish çevirme) or the Greek name "gyros". What would this dish be labeled in snack bars in Germany and all over Europe?

11- XXXXXing Out Time means what in a British Pub?

Good luck and the winner wins (plus S & H)!

looks like annhig (on double secret probation) wins - I'll wait for percy before awarding the prize (plus S & H).

#4 remains unanswered.

patate oorlog - well no but I can guess - oorlog means clock maybe or hour - so a clock potato? Naw don't think so so you've stumped the stumper!

4. The list would be too long if you include all of the champagne houses in each place. We loved visiting Dom Perignon but were disappointed that they didn't have the better ones available for sale at a reasonable price (only the budget versions).

nyt- that was my excuse for not answering #4 - too many to name.

thank you Percy for your unbiased appreciation of my talents, such as they are.

I'll try to restrain myself from now on, but Pal's quizzes are too tempting.
