30 Nov 2011 - The Crusting Pipe

Post by DRT » 19:24 Sun 27 Nov 2011

JDAW and I will be eating dead cow and drinking Vintage Port at The Crusting Pipe on Wednesday 30th November.

The theme for the evening is "Bring a bottle of Vintage Port wrapped in foil". Start time is likely to be around 18:30.

Any volunteers?

I would, of course, love to attend but my calendar this week (plus potentially the 30 Nov strikes, if these are going to have any impact on train/tube) could make it difficult - i put my chances at only 33% at this moment so count me out if you need firm commitment now.

I will try but as with Rob it depends on transport and how that is affected by the proposed strike...otherwise...I'm in...any theme?

Indeed, the National Day of Industrial Inaction could be an inconvenience.

Could the theme be non-blind? Just ‟A Bottle of Vintage Port”.

Although it might be an inconvenience, perhaps we owe it to the down-trodden masses (each of whom probably has a better pension arrangement than any of us) to support their cause by having a night of decadent excess. :P

This is just wrong. Please tell me it is a mistake?!?!?!

Surely you meant something different?

Apart from that it all looks fine. 88)

Well....very nice indeed.

In which case, i will leave jdaw1 to choose what he wants to drink from my cellar out of: F85, G83, D80, F77, F70 (base neck/just below base neck), Ck67 or Cr63 - i am equally excited by opening any of them.

I will decant tomorrow am based on what the placemat says!

A rather easy one imho.

Decant @ 6am, drink, then open another bottle @ 6pm to enjoy the night of.
