He didn't specify which morning. He might have meant the morning of Dec 16.

I didn't have a chance to follow up earlier and I am now off sick with a migraine. Please feel free to pursue; or I will at a later date.

Updated draft of the placemats.
  • DRT’s punishment bottle (his punishment, our drinking) is to be a Dow 1970.

Did you request that O70 and Ch94 be decanted? Did you explain that ‘we’ will be bringing a bottle of D70?

Exceed the expectations and fall short of the magic number.

Good, but you’ll need to much better than that to be under 16st 5 lb.

In a fit of optimism I’ll add you back to the placemats.

Presumably now that we have a table booked, and can therefore have something to eat, adding a single bottle with corkage (if requested) can be negotiated on the night?

I haven't had a chance to ring back with order details (e.g. the O70 and Ch94) and I presumed that they wouldn't want to open and decant these on the basis of a booking from a customer they've never heard of before. I figured they'd need payment up front for the bottles. I thought that perhaps I might negotiate this in person nearer the time. And while doing that I could also raise the subject of the corkage for the D70.

A bottle of 1970 VP will attend this tasting. If I qualify for attendance I will drink it with you. If I don't, you will all drink it without me.

It occurs to me that since this is classified under 'informal Christmas drinks', self-certification is sufficient from DRT. Derek, can we trust you to assure us that you will be able to join us?
