If I could be sure the crane was going to hold, yes, I would do this! I would have to drop food to James though, as he wouldn't leave the ground.

The video made it clear that food had to take a back seat to the gimmick. Not interested.

Even without the best food in the world it would be fun, but then, why not just sky dive or something rather than eating up high?

Because the two things are completely different experiences.

I meant in general... activities in the sky If you're gonna be up high it would be more fun to do something other than eating mediocre food. I'd still try it though, but how would I get away with not paying the bill?

I think I would rather have a picnic on top of a skyscraper or something like that.

i hear what you are saying, but they are apples and oranges.

For me I would love to do this, not for the food, but for the experience. I think it would be a blast to be up there with a bunch of friends dangling way up there was having dinner conversation. You sure could not do that while falling through the air.

I voted NO.... mainly because I want a dining experience... not a hair raising one. One or the other is great, but the two together? Different moods, feelings, anticipations are generated when you go to eat, same is true when you do something daring. (I guess some places you eat could be considered daring!)

There are way to many varibles that would keep me distracted from one or the other.
