Updated and hopefully final version of the food order v3 now submitted, to include changes for non-available items, believed all now ok with B&F.
Is the link correct?

Separately, if the Ports on the placemats are correct, I’ll make TN threads. Please confirm correctness.

Re: Tom’s Birthday 1960 Horizontal, Tue 02 June 2020

You attended your fiftieth birthday event, at The Bowler Attended being the operative word.. As I recall, they expected us to sit barely 1ft apart and there was an art exhibition taking place in the same room at the same time. Did I taste the NN60? I don't recall doing so - but I do recall spending...

Yes you have. You attended your fiftieth birthday event, at The Bowler, at which there was NN60.

Thinner than the regular Noval.
So likely not worth the large cost.

Of course, if you wish to donate a NN60, then we’d accept.

Re: Software that makes placemats

Some confusion. the broken lines around each label are more complex than I had in mind Is there a reason for the decanter label cutting lines to be different colours and some being bold while others are not? These don’t print. Display only. Have you a different PDF viewer? I don't think these short ...

Re: Tom’s Birthday 1960 Horizontal, Tue 02 June 2020

There will be fourteen of us, likely all full-capacity drinkers, and 14 × 1¼ = 17½. Table space limits us to 1×A3 + 1×A4, so to about 15 + 6 = 21 glasses. Would it be wrong to have between 18 and 20?

Tom’s Birthday 1960 Horizontal, Tue 02 June 2020

Tom’s vintage year is 1960. Indeed, some might recall that we marked his fiftieth with a 1960 horizontal . And a decade later he has requested the same theme again. Tuesday 2nd June 2020 is the date for this horizontal, set after consultation with Tom and industry guests. The organiser of this tasti...

Re: Software that makes placemats

The decanter labels are spread over the decanter-label page, usually A4, to be as tightly packed as possible subject to a minimum size ( DecanterLabelsMaxSmallerDimension × DecanterLabelsMaxLargerDimension ). I could show more cut lines, perhaps only short and at the edge, such that each rectangle ...

Re: Software that makes placemats

A request has come from AHB, which I paraphrase here. He was guillotining a page of decanter labels , and wanted thin grey lines between them to guide his chopping. I have two sources of reluctance, on which comment is invited. • The decanter labels are spread over the decanter-label page, usually A...

Re: Niepoort´s port 1957 for sell

Hello and welcome.

I’ve no interest in this bottle, but I’ll make a helpful observation. The prices you’ve quoted are the optimistic prices at which some wine merchants hope to sell. Which can be far above any measure of a fair achievable price. Which, for this, I’d expect to be high double-digits.

Re: Leaking Port Bottle - Garrafeira

Speak to auction house. Its bad packing is its fault.

Garrafeira is more vintage than tawny (argument expected), so I’d drink it very soon.
