Re: Another virtual tasting

Either, or both.

Based on last time, my reckoning is that we need the guessing page of the placemats, and only that page. Did the other attendees agree?

Re: Online Tasting - Wed 25th March 2020

I’d like the format for tomorrow’s tasting to be Reverse Blind.

Reverse Blind? I taste my Port, and tell you what I taste. You ask questions — “X on the aftertaste?” — and I answer honestly.

Then you guess what my Port is.

Objections?

All places we drink port in NY and NJ -- including our houses -- are temporarily closed with the exception of port drinking by the residents. :P
Post their notices here. Notices to be re-visited when the places themselves can be re-visited.

This is Tom’s tasting, and he is the organiser. Nonetheless, as his occasional scribe I’ll note that, as remarked elsewhere, this is likely to be cancelled.

if you get driven to distraction, feel free to walk to the B&F and back to avoid possible spreading while on public transport.

I have before, many times before, made last minute changes to placemats. But never before such slaughter.

Re: Y2K Tasting Tuesday 17th March

One of my children has a close friend whose siblings are ill, with symptoms that are consistent with being COVID19. My children and I all feel well.

My judgement is that I should stay away. Do people agree with that judgement?
