Tue 12 June - anyone available?

Post by AHB » 17:33 Wed 06 Jun 2018

I could be in London overnight on Tuesday 12th June. If I was, would anyone be interested in sharing a bottle of port?

Since it appears to be just the two of us, let’s go for Bar Douro. I’m travelling down from Liverpool by train that afternoon - would you be OK with a 7pm start just to give me a bit of extra time?

Now you'll be three. I don't think you need placemats. Have fun!

If you are able to, could you call Bar Douro and ask if we can increase the booking from 3 to 4 people please? I won’t get the chance to call them much before I arrive.

Bear in mind we won’t have space at Bar Douro for tasting mats. Best we’ll be able to use is stickies — but we may not even be able to get 4 glasses each and we’ll have to negotiate corkage on the night!

Confirmation of change of booking received from Bar Douro.

My train looks to be arriving in Euston at 18.37. I’ll be with you about 19.00.
