 for great-wall
From The Jargon File (version 4.4.7, 29 Dec 2003) :

  great-wall
   vi.,n.
  
      [from SF fandom] A mass expedition to an oriental restaurant, esp. one
      where food is served family-style and shared. There is a common heuristic
      about the amount of food to order, expressed as ?Get N - 1 entrees?; the
      value of N, which is the number of people in the group, can be inferred
      from context (see N). See oriental food, ravs, stir-fried random.
