The Rules, in no particular order are as follows:
Starting with the rules relating to Fred
1.Take drink every time Fred (the Maître d’) imparts a pearl of wisdom
2.Take a drink if Fred comments on someone’s outfit.
3.Take a drink if Fred tells a couple not to be ‘naughty’
4.Take a drink whenever Fred twinkles his eyes at the camera or does something cheeky
