The reservation is for five. If expanded, please call them ASAP and ask nicely for extra space.

Will do, I will make a call tomorrow morning and clear it up. As always, I'll be extra nice.

I have no objections to decanting Warres, SWC, or even Ferreira from 1-2p. However, I am concerned that it may be too much time for the undoubtedly lighter Delaforce and Guedes. Jeff has a plan for the Croft.

Here is my current plan: garrotte both around 3:15pm, Decanter for 30 min to 1 hr, then put back in the bottle and train down to NYC. (lvng by 415ish)
Is there any need for me to bring the original bottles? Or will tagged bottles suffice?

Glasses! I have only twenty-nine. But five or six of us, times six or seven ports, exceeds that. Jeff: please bring a box of glasses.

The obvious thing to do would be to cut out the decanter labels from the page thereof, and paste to the bottles. And don’t forget to bring the paperwork.

You could always post yourself to JDAW in a big yellow box and then post yourself back home after the offline :wink:

Are you kidding? At UK shipping rates that'd be more expensive than just buying an airline ticket. :shock:
