Re: Thursday 23 May 2019: Victoria’s 200th

The food order has been sent to The B&F.

As usual, I’m going to struggle to be early. Please could somebody else volunteer to print the placemats (control-shift-R to force-reload latest — both † and ‡ are on the second page); and also start setup and such decanting as is necessary. Thank you.

someone quoted me the Malvedos was worth £150
That’s an astonishingly good price for a GM79. Accept, pronto!

Where are you? Or, more importantly, where are the bottles?

FYI, neither bottle is very valuable. Have you friends or family with whom you could drink them, or to whom you could give them?

Re: Tue 21st May 2019 - an informal offline

Hello. If a new bug might be an acceptable additional attendee, I would quite like to attend. However, most of my port is 100 miles away and I cannot access it before this event. The only port I have in town is a minor 25-year-old. I do, however, have some slightly more interesting other-fortified ...

This might have been mistaken. Checking.
Mistaken. Reverting.

Both the food order and the placemats have been updated.

I'm still waiting for the day that Julian's Welsh Rarebit arrives at the table as a bowl of molten cheese (plus worcestershire sauce and possibly a touch of mustard, of course) with a piece of toast at the bottom!
You are waiting? You! I’m fifty, and still suffering from this teenage dream.

I ought to think about placemats. Is this still happening on the 21st of May 2019?

Not at all. Then Ben will have to bring one.

Yes. What are you bringing? Perhaps you and AHB could jointly bring a magnum of Dow 1878?

Hans Underfen, Riøbenhavn

Seeking information about a wine merchant or importer, about which I know only “Hans Underfen, Riøbenhavn” (the location perhaps being Copenhagen).

Please, if you have bottles or knowledge, do share. (Link to picture at full resolution.)

Re: Vintage Port Collection for Sale!

Warre's Vintage 1969 (1 bottle) Please could I have a really good photograph of the Warre 1969. It’s not a good Port, but it’s unusual, and I’d really welcome a photograph ( my contact details ), and permission to use it in the Addendum to my book . Dank je. In return for which, I’ve sent a message...

Re: Broadbent, wed 1st May 2019, at the B&F

The version of the placemats printed was not the most recent uploaded. Note to self: remind whoever is printing to force-reload. Which means that two of the Bb were mislabelled on some pages by two years. Also the thing labelled Warre 1991 is actually Skeffington (Davy’s) 1994.
