Need to check, but likely yes.

Might bring a guest.

Theme? If ‘Bring A Bottle of Port to Share’, blind or sighted?

Alas, I will be enjoying the delights of the Kingsknowes Hotel* in Galashiels in the Scottish Borders and will be unable to join you.

I'm quite certain that the bottle of Cockburn Special Reserve that was opened in 2012 that is sitting behind the bar will be as delightful as anything that you will be drinking at the B&F :roll:

I was briefly in but now unfortunately I am out (my wife reminded me that she is away with work and thus I am 'on duty' that night). Apologies!

I have a wine tasting (wines from the former Soviet Empire) that evening which will run to about 19.30. I could join you for dinner and a brief sip of port if a late entrant were to be allowed, arriving around 20.00?

If there is still room, could I please book a place? I am afraid I will need to pass on the dinner, but have just the bottle for a blind tasting.

Excellent - What do you want to eat? I will order for you (the rest of us will order on the night)

Please could I have a medium rare sirloin steak with fries. No starter. Possibly a dessert, depending on how hungry I am.

By chance (or fate) I see that there is one space left and my jury service has just been postponed a few days so I can come.

Looks like A3. I can print.

Julian - I have a bonus bottle I was planning on bringing. Did you have other plans for the dagger or can I use that slot?

As table space is at a premium, I made it US Legal = 14″×8½″. I could print at home on Tuesday evening.
