When I am back at my computer this evening I will update. Meanwhile, perhaps other attendees could ensure that they have chosen.

Aye, both star (12 degrees) and bottle (also currently at 12 degrees) chosen and yearning to be opened...
BTW - What time are we aiming/booked for?

Soon I’m going to have to delete some unused stars. In anticipation of this let’s have images here, to facilitate future re-use of the technology. Theme:

Sorry, Julian, but I am not able to participate this time. I know that I am going to miss some good port and company and do wish you a pleasant evening.

Updated draft of the placemats.
  • RKA = Scattered; THRA = Wiggle; JGH = Pombal.
  • Pages pruned to remove excess of circles.

Happily, my work commitments tomorrow appear to be finishing at 5pm and it is only a 30 minute walk to TCP. I may even be a few minutes earlier than the scheduled 18:00 start.

Excellent. Take the Central line to go from TCP to The Steak Exchange.

I am due to finish at 4pm in Westminster and will be in the general vicinity of TSE around 5pm just in case there is a beer emergency.

I don't think you made the TCP event where Julian and I had bone-in rib-eye steak for both starter and main course.

Change of venue (from my imaginary venue to the one always planned) noted. I will endeavour to appear at the right location at roughly the right time. Please keep me advised of the location of any beer emergency remedial event.

Has anyone invited Christopher?

I presume we are applying the silver foil treatment to bottles?

I may not be able to make 6.00 but please feel free to start without me. If you need to order on my behalf, i will not take a starter but would be happy to share one of the big steaks (rare or medium rare preferred) with bernaise, spinach and broccoli on the side (or otherwise rare individual rib-eye with bernaise, spinach and broccoli will do fine).
