So what are you drinking tonight, Alex?

Talk about anything but keep it polite and reasonably clean.

I believe BIrthday congratulations are in order. I am going to guess a bottle of 1963 'something' may be in the decanter!

Happy Birthday AHB! :D

I'll guess Ferreira 1963.

It may surprise you both to know that no port passed my lips tonight. I washed down my confit de canard with a glass of Breton cider instead.

Have you learned nothing from me in 5 years? If you don't have a 1963 VP by midnight you'll be dead inside a year!
