Mid year dinner - Bistro 526:00 for 6:30 pm
Wednesday the 19th July sees the club is returning to Bistro 52 on lower Cuba Street for its mid winter dinner, the menu for which was circulated earlier this month.
Start time is slightly earlier at 6pm for a meal start of 6:30pm. You will be greeted at the door with a glass of French bubbles. Sadly not Champagne [sorry Odette and others] but I’m sure it will still provide a great start to a really enjoyable evening.
Seating is such that the tables will only accommodate a maximum of 8 people. This will mean some of our larger groupings may need to split. This hasn’t been a problem in the past so hopefully that proves to be the case this time around as well. Please don’t try to join the tables together as this may impact the training that’s going on in the background. Given all this, we have made the decision not to have a formal seating plan.
As I’ve just said, this is a training restaurant so something may well go wrong. If it happens, just let the restaurant manager know and allow him to set about getting your problem remedied.
And a request. Please make sure you hand your wine to the waiting staff so that they can practice opening and pouring wine etc.
This promises to be a great evening with 37 people attending. As always, it will be interesting to see what wines members bring to match their likely food choices.
Note for the newer members who may be attending for the first time - our dinners are BYO and its customary to share your wine with others at your table.
One last reminder to everyone, if you do wish to finish the evening with tea or coffee, that is not part of the cost so you’ll need to arrange and pay for that yourselves.
Drinking and driving
Members will be aware of the lowering of drink/drive limits from December 2014. If unsure read the Land Transport Amendment Act (no 2) 2014. We ask members to be conscious of these limits.
