Thursday, January 2nd, London, "Bring a bottle to share"

Post by WS1 » 07:32 Mon 30 Dec 2013

DrDirk will be in London on Thursday January 2nd and would like to have some port in good company. If the Bunghole is open it will be the likely venue for this gathering. Start time ~6:00 PM. Please let me know if anyone happens to be around London and would care to meet to beat the New Year Blues...

Theme is "Bring a bt to share"

regards

Sounds good, and I should be free that night.

You are both children of the 1970 vintage...?

WPS: should I bring your six-pack of O07 LBV ¾L? Actually, I will, unless you instruct to the contrary.

Not the start to the year that we might have expected, but each to their own taste.

O07 I believe is Offley 2007 LBV - which is a brilliant LBV
