Either one, as long as the food is good.


#23

Where do you guys normally go?


#24

In theory both dates currently doable. 4th will be the evening after SuperBowl party night mind you…


#25

… And girls! :wink:


#26

We had two lunches so far. Hawksmoor Guildhall and Picture Fitzrovia


#27

I always use the term guys to include any gender!! :wink:


#28

Yep, that’s my you-plural as well. I can’t carry off y’all or youse and I need to fill that gap in the English language somehow…!


#29

No hard feelings! It’s a cliche now, but in Brighton - fludity of gender is the norm :thinking:. I guess my plural alterntive (if one doesn’t feel all that Brightonian) would be “you people” - but hey! I’m splitting hairs here. :wink:


#30

I could wear a dress, I suppose :wink:


#31

But more seriously, another option could be Merchants Tavern (they’ll do free corkage on Mondays). Lorne and Noizé are also popular for this kind of thing.


#32

I closed the poll and declare 4 February the winner. We will confirm attendance mid January then discuss location and wines in a private chat.

Put the date in the diaries…


#33

I think I can come on 4 February too :slight_smile:


#34

Is it time to start confirming attendance?


#35

Please confirm attendance in the evening of 4 February 2019.

  • I will attend
  • I will NOT attend

0 voters

Let’s then take it then onto private chat on Friday. I will maybe nudge people who voted for this date during the week… for starters @Kent_wino @HarrierTB @woodap don’t miss this…

Hi Akos

just checking out restaurant with byo options on a Monday
Hawksmoor obviously at £5 a bottle
Jun Tanaka’s the Ninth I think offers zero corkage on a Monday
I think I could get a decent corkage deal at Pied a Terre
The Quality Chophouse is a possible
Possibility of negotiating a reasonable corkage fee at Elystan St
I cannot recommend Hix Oyster and Chop house

once we see how many commit, we can do some more work.

NPM restaurants all doing free corkage for Jan/Feb to Farr customers (and their guests). They may struggle if we’re a large group, though.
Merchants Tavern do it free on Mondays.
Let’s see how many we are!


#38

Are you not attending now, @szaki1974? That’s a shame…


#39

I could not make it work. Maybe next time…


#40

Shame, you will be sorely missed


#41

Hi @thewinelake, I had a look at Merchants Tavern. It looks tricky to get to, which is a shame. I think we should be looking at more accessible, centrally located options ?
Anyone else have view ?
