Wednesday, September 30
Thursday, October 1


Just to repeat, they're both fine for me.


And me!



Woo-Hoo!

Let's ink in that Wednesday the 30th, shall we? There is a chance I may leave for the weekend (Edinburgh or Paris - I haven't decided). That will give me an extra day if I decide to go early.

Sounds good, just need balex to confirm and I can go ahead and book, unless others want to join us?

Unfortunately, I shall not be in town when you are. I am in L.A with Syb.

However, did want to say that I had a fabulous young grouse at Rules yesterday. It is 27.50 and served with the classic accompaniments of bread sauce, breadcrumbs, game chips along with a Cumberland jelly and Madeira sauce.

Definitely worth trying out, particularly as you can combine it with a visit to the incomparable Brian Silva in their bar upstairs, currently the best bar in London

Thanks, SM -- despite its reputation as being stodgy and out-of-time, I am huge fan Rules and will try and make it a stop during my stay!

I've inked it in and can't thank you guys enough! Undoubtedly this (and the reopening of the jewelry exhibit at the V&A) will be the highlights of my trip!

Any time between 7.28 and 7.31 is good for me.

I don't think I can make it at 7:29. I hope that doesn't inconvenience anyone. cool.gif

Restaurant currently closed as they're having a new boiler fitted, but I've made a reservation request via the website and should hear back from them before the end of the week hopefully.

Thanks, Andy! Keeping fingers crossed that it won't take a month to fix the problem... I'm getting very excited about the trip!
