Monday 21st September?

Post by AHB » 09:48 Fri 18 Sep 2020

I have a meeting in London on Monday which should end about 18.30.

Would anyone like to meet for dinner and a glass of Port on Monday night? Clearly we would be restricted to a maximum of six people.
Top Ports in 2019: Niepoort VV (1960s bottling) and Quinta do Noval Nacional 2017
Top Ports in 2020 (so far): Croft 1945 and Niepoort VV (1960s bottling)

Maybe. If there's a preference for this day, could scrap 28th.

Regret non-availability due to heading off to country for the week...

Yes, Boot&Flogger? I will be most likely bruised after my PT session in the gym following lockdown.....

Please let me know.

My meeting is in St James’s. I’d prefer Hawksmoor in Air Street but I can do the Boot & Flogger if that’s easier for you.

My wife says yes. But the FT says “Matt Hancock warns UK is at Covid tipping point”.

There is a right thing to do here, and that’s what I’m going to do. So not me. Alas.

Given a list of attendees, I’ll do my traditional thing.

it seems that I will be attending. I think that no tasting mats are required.

but how will you know which is yours, and which is Wolfgang's port(s)?
BTW - I plan on opening a bottle for tonight/tomorrow, so would be up for joining via zoom, if that might be wanted and technically possible depending where you are? (or separately in parallel if not, and anyone else is feeling sociable)

I think I can make it. What’s the deal - bring a bottle and pay corkage?

If that changes, let me know.
