I can't make the 30th as it's my daughter's birthday but barring 31st ok for all other dates.

It seems that availability is maximised by it being Wed 04 Jan 2017. The Green Room has been booked.

Sorry Cookie — not you.

Theme?

Predictable I know but 'from a year ending in a 7'? I would suggest that this excludes shippers earmarked for the tasting on 1 February (albeit this is large formats). Other than that a simple bring a bottle.

First post updated with theme and placemats.

I hope that you can find in your hearts the generosity of spirit, perhaps appropriate to the season, to forgive a likely breach of protocol: there is a risk that, in an abject failure to understand the nearness of the limit of the Peano axioms, I might bring two. Mercy of the Court, etc.

Edit: AHB added to the placemats. He hasn’t yet said that he can come. Indeed, he’s certainly unavailable. But he might yet become available.

I am unavailable and unlikely to be there. However, life brings many surprises.
Top Ports in 2021: Niepoort Garrafeira 1931; Niepoort VV (1960s bottling) and Cockburn 1969 Single Harvest Tawny

Top Port in 2022 so far: the most stunning bottle of Quinta do Noval Nacional 1931. I have never drunk such a wonderful bottle of Port.

I’ll remove you from the placemats.

I’ll keep you on the placemats. (Should I add you to the first post, so that your place is safe against a sudden influx of people?)

A Happy New Year to all!

My bottle for this evening was decanted at 7am and I'm hopeful that it will taste as good as it looked. Should be there by about 6.30pm.
