Food order started. For those new to this, I remind you of how it works: if you don’t check whether your food order is correct, and it’s wrong, that is your fault not mine. Please do check.

Splendid. If you are going to notice others’ spelling, we can notice your apostrophes. Henceforth you are thread-182 eligible.

Waitlist empty: a slot for a guest; or just thirteen of us.

I’m declaring there to be a team adoption of the Constantino from Tom. Tom: pls send me £ information.

Please could those who have deposited 1963s at the B&F reveal what’s there. Who was deposited what?
