Could you put me down for no starter, sirloin steak, medium rare with skinny fries (if possible, hand-cut chips if not) and a bearnaise sauce please.

James would like no starter; a mushroom risotto main with a side salad; no dessert.

Chris would like to start with the duck liver pate, followed by the slow cooked chicken leg with a side of broccoli, rounded out with the flourless chocolate cake.

Julian - would you be able to update the pre-order please?

Could those who have not yet deposited their bottles at the Boot & Flogger please do so as soon as possible - or let me know that you have not already done so.

The current line up of ports looks like this:
  1. James Maitland — Croft (at B&F);
  2. AHB — Gonzalez Byass (at B&F);
  3. JDAW — Taylor (at B&F);
  4. SCD — Noval (at B&F);
  5. CPR — Dow (at B&F);
  6. MPM — Warre (adopted from THRA, at B&F);
  7. IDJ — Fonseca (at B&F);
  8. THRA — Graham (at B&F);
  9. JK — Cockburn (at B&F);
  10. JK's +1 — Offley (adopted, to be paid to THRA on the night; at THRA);
  11. CA — Sandeman (at B&F);
  12. GM — Mackenzie (adopted, to be paid to THRA on the night; at B&F)
I plan to spend my lunch hour decanting and then to pre-pour about an hour before we start. Help with the pre-pouring and putting out of glasses would be greatly appreciated. Note that since there are only 12 of us the pours will be slightly more generous than usual.

Please could the placemats be inspected, and critiqued or praised.

I've rarely seen such a shoddy pile of festering shabbiness, a catastrophic display of inept and cankerous disdain, a disgusting mess which... oh hold on, you said critiqued, not criticised, I'm terribly sorry. Hmm, critiqued or praised, err... Yes, they're lovely, very good show.

They look good - I'm happier with two sheets of A4 than the single sheet of A3.

Some small requests for changes please:
1) Dagger will be the Offley 1955 provided by THRA via Mrs Justin
2) Mackenzie will be provided by THRA via Gonçalo M.

I will print the pack on Wednesday 5th

Done. Please check not overly rotten and offensive.

Could you email me the pdf or put a new link onto TPF? My cache won't load the amended version from the link above.

I've just clicked on the food order link, thinking that this would be a good way for me to send it in to them on Monday.

The link appears to be broken.

With my sincerest apologies and with great regret I will have to go back to Lisbon tomorrow and will not be able to join you. I have been tied up until very late in the closing of a transaction for the last week and I was hoping, until just now that could join you. I hope there is another chance. In the meantime I will be posting on the vertical of Niepoort's Garrafeiras I did recently.

That is a shame, it would have been nice to have met you. Hopefully there will be another time when you can make it.
