The food order has been started.

You’ll want from Christopher’s two guests, and the name of one of his guests. He can be unresponsive, so ask soon.
Draft food order added to first post.
Thanks for the heads up - PM to Christopher sent.

Re: Offline 3rd July B&F Red Room - Theme TBD

Having checked what I have to hand, I think it'll be an open "bring a bottle to share", as I am undecided what I want to bring and don't have a theme that fits all possible options. I'm game. Are we going for an open 'bring a bottle to share' theme - or perhaps another ABV event? Added and JDAW remo...

It has been a little while, can I confirm if this is still happening and if so has the B&F been booked? Thanks for the reminder - I just emailed the B&F.

Re: Offline 3rd July Theme TBD, likely at B&F

Looks like Tuesday 3rd July is the best date all round.
I'll have a look at what I have at home to inspire a theme, noting that 1963 is already happening in April. Perhaps a 1970?

Re: We need some tastings in the diary

I am in the unexpected scenario of knowing that I'll be free for a tasting on Mon, Tue or Wed 2-4th July. My other half is away at a conference and I'll be idle in the UK between contracts. Any interest in a tasting then and any themes needing a home?

Thanks for the quick reply Leslie (and sorry for the slow response). I've been burned before with a couple of auction bottles from garages, so might pass on this one. Best of luck with someone else.

Re: Dows vintage 1985 and Fonseca 1985 port for sale

Hi and welcome, Lesley. Can I ask what room and temperature the port has been in/at (a cellar, garage, shed, loft, a regular room)?
I'm actually only 15 miles away in Bucks, so could be tempted, whilst seconding flash's comments on price.
