Tue 30th October

Post by AHB » 14:19 Fri 12 Oct 2018

We appear to have nothing in the diary now until our Offley vertical on 11th December. Is this too long to go without drinking Port?

"Of course not!" I hear you cry. "We're all abstaining until Christmas."

Well I'm not! Work brings me to London on Tuesday 30th October and I plan to stay a little after hours at our favourite place. Is anyone else going to be around and likely to be thirsty?

Blind or sighted at the bringer’s option.

As this is looking like a small gathering should we perhaps consider having it at The Tappit Hen, which opens on the previous evening?

I'm beginning to like blind. I'm still as rubbish at guessing though.

I might pop by if there is space to squeeze me in. On the 30th I should be back from Burgundy and Austria picking up and tasting wine. I feel some mature port would do me good.....😀😀😀😀😀

I have a room booked for 8 people - but I'm not certain whether this is the Green Room or the upstairs private room (or, indeed, a table in the ovens or elsewhere).

If more than 8 people want to attend I will start a waiting list and enquire whether the green room is available.
