Hi Julian

Thank you for organising the food.

On the placemats Please can you remove the N78 and substitute an RO58.

We are a little short on 1800's so I have an unknown (believed) 1877 vintage I would like to add - This is a low shoulder bottle from the christies dec auction - so seems like a good point to open it. Can you add this?

I am on holiday at the moment so responses are sporadic..

The food order updated.

New policy for future events. I will post that people are getting a copy of a recent order, and if different might be wanted, it will be their responsibility to check and request.

The vintage we are missing, of course, is 1888, which was declared by Offley and by Royal Oporto.

Food order for me please: duck liver pate to start followed by rare steak with chips and green beans. Thank you :)
I like the idea of less fuss with food ordering so the above order can be used in future events. :993333:

Good plan. Or have a "default order" thread. As I think I've ordered the same thing for the last 4+ tastings, works for me.

I donʼt have access to my home email. Please could somebody send the food order to the B&F?

Looking forward to this.

And please could somebody check the placemats. (Please do command-r or control-r to force a reload to the latest version, time-stamped ≥ 19:50 Fri 01 June.)

Tony: can you print on A3?

Agree with Mike, with a couple of notes.
- Placemats all appear correct, but noting that there are discrepancies with first post which is out of date (missing replacement of N78 by RO58, and additional of ?1877; also THRA mis-spelled; Am assuming CAPRICA == VDSS is correct).
- Only possible error is that 1877 should be before 1896, rather than after (rest of order is in correct date sequence).

p.s. Alex's order appears to be missing from the food order (as does Ian's, but in the latter case he hasn't provided one).

Sackcloth and ashes, I should have seen that: fixed.

Added, but it might be too late for his special order. Sorry. (Though people are asked to check.)

Tony - if you need help pouring I can be there around 5.

Mike - Grateful if you can print off as I do not have an A3 printer. Help would be most welcome. Please confirm that you are able to bring A3.

In a slightly more organised parallel universe I would have transported everything up to B&F and decanted early there. Reality says I will decant at home at around 11.00 AM (the bottles have been standing for the past 5 days).

The 'Believed' 1877 Vintage is 'Believed' 1867 (identification from etched date in chalk on other bottles)
