I hope you do write that article.  A lot of times, however, its the
head cook that determines the pace.  Or outside controls  I know for
Hawksfeast, Ilyana finished serving by 7:30.  Lots of dance time.  And
that's what we did for the next 2 1/2 hours.  I'm trying to speed up
White Shield Feast, but Courts are devouring the time afterward. 
Still, I won't mind getting everything finished early so I can get off
my feet, even if we aren't having dancing.
