Yes please, subject to the obvious constraints.

Might try for a guest — who will then become unavailable.

No chance for me I'm afraid on this date. Hope to see folks again for the GC tasting, if reserve spots open up.

I am afraid I am also in France so can't make this one.
Enjoy the juice! And good luck Tony!

I might have to go collect a suitable bottle — and might not. Please sir, what’s the theme?

What about "bring a container of port, or something a bit like port, to share with port-lovers"?

That way RLC can bring something brown and sticky, you and CSD can bring whatever you have, and the rest of us have free rein to choose whatever we want to bring.
