Opinions vary among writers and editors on the usage or avoidance of the serial comma. In American English the serial comma is standard in most non-journalistic writing, which typically follows the Chicago Manual of Style. Journalists, however, usually follow the Associated Press Style Guide, which advises against it. It is less often used in British English.[4][5]

Go back to America, Yankee.

The conjunction AND in the above sentence for the last item in the series does not need a comma as the comma in a series actually functions as a conjunction. However, use a comma before the conjunction to avoid confusion with series of long phrases.

Grammarbots roll out!

omgomgomg.. if there are 3 or more separate elements in a series you should use a comma.

IS IT:
1. food
2. wine and dining out

OR:
1. food
2. wine
3. and dining out

???

although you can argue that we already know which one's which and don't need the comma to separate them further.

i say:
GET A BRAIN, MORANS!!!!!!

The 'and' replaces the comma. "and dining out" isn't something. "dining out" is. It also represents the end of a series. As does jumping over a shark on waterskis.

fine, have it like that. i still say comma is more correct than no comma. your less correct method is still okay, though.

not sure if it's insensitive to be planning the next one so soon after the last one finished, BUT as mentioned to mr jaye last night, bluefire grill in docklands (yeah, i know) has half priced meat bonanza on tuesdays.

http://www.bluefiregrill.com.au/wate...als_events.htm

plus if we have more than eight and tell them it's someone's birthday we get FREE CAEK!!!

not been here before and am aware of its docklandsiness so not fussed if the offer gets knocked down.

I'm definitely down for that, Tuesday isn't great for me though. Willing to bail on chocs if we get a wicked sick crew though.

I have been a few times and the food is pretty good, but boy it's a lot of meat. It's a little weird when they come out with meat covered skewers and ask "Sausage madam?".

Half price is win coz I never get my monies worth all you can eat stylez Pro-tip - turn your card over to red before you are full because they bring the calamari and good stuff out later - they fill you up with sausages and stuff at the start

So that's a yes from me, depending on date.
