SushiNorth Visits London

Post by AHB » 14:31 Fri 04 Nov 2011

Josh has asked whether anyone might be around in London and interested in an informal TCP offline at some point while he and his better half are in London - November 12 to 19.

Clearly the night of Nov 17 is out of the question, but I could be in London on Monday 14th. Would this work for anyone else?

Works for me -- anyone else game?

This might work for me, though need to confirm next week, otherwise Sunday afternoon/evening would also work (but i recognise it may not be possible for others with family duties).

I'm working to finalize my London plans, any word on this evening at TCP?

It's proving difficult to get people into London for more than one visit this week.

How about if we were to look at getting together in the Crusting Pipe on the evening of Wednesday 16th as a warm up for the main event at the RAF Club on the 17th?

Agreed, its seems to be a very packed port schedule here in November. Perhaps I should just keep it simple and stick to the Thursday tasting. I'd still like to visit TCP, though I may just swing by for some lunch (probably wednesday).
I'll send you some contact info for when I'm in london and if something casual works out, great.

Btw, Berry Brothers & Rudd have a port tasting on Dec 1; i may try to at least visit them while i'm in the area.

That would work for me.
