      Hi there,
      I've got one of those ridiculously over the top menus Czech
      restaurateurs are so fond of, and one page concerns itself with
      a "nabidka slavnostniho vecerniho menu pro 'vetsi spolecnost'".
      In this case are they referring to "high society" or a "large
      gathering/party"? No other context I'm afraid...

        At the moment I remember the Czech expression for "high society", but this
        is certainly a different term.

        Seconded - they mean a large group, no other meaning possible. Not sure about an accurate figure though - in a smaller restaurant, this might mean 5x+ but

          Not sure about an accurate figure though - in a smaller restaurant, this
          might mean 5x+ but also 10+, in a big one 20+ - you have better not to be
          specific.

          hlavu, co je to ten Listen zac ... :-)))

            Ahoj Coline,

            vetsi spolecnost se nevejde v restauraci k jednomu standardnimu stolu,
            ktery byva pro 2 az 6 osob (nejcasteji 4).

            Vetsi spolecnost spojuje spolecna akce = svatba, pohreb, krtiny,
            skoleni, schuze, seminar,....

            Vetsi spolecnost navstevniku restaurace byva v mistnosti oddelene od
            ostatnich hostu (v banketce, v salonku, v "extrovne" a podobne).

            Nektera restaurace nema samostanou mistnost a pouze pro vetsi spolecnost
            pripravi "tabuli" = sestavi z jednotlivych stolu dlouhy stul pozadovaneho tvaru
            (" I ":, " T ", " O ", dve rady stolu " I I " atd.),

            Milan

            PS: individualni akce, kdyz si neumite objednat jidlo a nebo nevite,
            co se pod kterym nazvem skryva

            V roce 1990 jsem videl v hotelu ve Vysokych Tatrach osamoceneho
            Kuvajtana, ktery si nechal kazdy vecer pripravit ve spolecne restauracni
            mistnosti "slavnostni vecerni menu pro 12 osob". Tabule byla bez zidli.
            Muz se prochazel pul hodiny kolem stolu a rukama jedl co jej napadlo.

            Potom odesel do pokoje.
            Cisnici se nas (6 lidi) zeptali, jestli nechceme polevky,
            omacky, maso a prilohy, zeleninu... (nechteli jsme).
            Potom vse odnesli do kuchyne, odkud bylo slyset spokojene konzumenty.

              Hi Coilin,

              Generally speaking, this usage of comparative adjective in Czech corresponds
              nicely with 'fairly' + simple form adjective. I think it's explained like
              this in Don Sparling's "English or Czenglish" from the 1980s. 'Larger' there
              means 'a bit larger than usual'.

              By the way, I never received the original inquiry from the list...
