No More Sauteed Kangaroo Liver at Dougs Steak House

ANZBIR (Australian New Zealand Businessmen in Russia), a Moscow-based networking club for antipodeans, had its first event after an 18 month hiatus. on October 19th at the newly opened Doug's Steakhouse. David Gorrel, an Australian expatriate business consultant, has taken over the reins of the club, and was delighted with this first event of the season. Approximately 50 expatriates and businessmen from various countries (not limited to Australasia) turned up for the event. The Ambassadors of Australia and New Zealand were in attendance as well. Sponsorship was provided by DHL; CIS operations of DHL are run by New Zealand expatriate Garry Kemp. Mr. Gorrel had this to say on the future of ANZBIR: "I am very pleased with the turn out for this first event, and we plan on many more over the coming months. ANZBIR plans to link up with various other expatriate business clubs in town to create truly valuable networking events that hopefully shall benefit all, no matter where you are from. While we were glad to see that Dougs Steak House serves nothing but the finest steak imported from Australia, and great Australian shiraz to boot, we are quite disappointed that they have removed sauteed kangaroo liver from the menu.
