And you wonder why Fulham have the reputation they have. 


Yes best brace ourselves for a few choruses of "Does your butler know you're here" this evening!
Of course he does, who else would arrange tickets, transport, advise on appropriate clothing etc?

Here in Spain I buy the Semi secCava for €1.49 & if I want a really top red Rioja I might have to pay up to €3. Spirits from Aldi are €4.50 a bottle. San Miguel cans 29 cents each.

Also, Waitrose has had a 10 fine wines for £10/bottle promotion recently, some of which have now sold out, and there are some stunning bargains amongst them.

I bought a couple of bottles of a particular NZ SB on this offer that the Ivy sells for £39!

Expect this thread to get busier tonight.

What is everyone numbing the pain with this evening?

Im on a bottle of Barolo 2014 from Lidl. Disappointing so far... like the Whites defence...

I tried that and tasted against the lower cost chapel down..... chapel down rather nicer IMO.  I commend it to you.

Considered making a beer section too...

Castle Rock is the local brewery in Nottingham and does a few great bottles available nationwide. Elsie Mo is my favourite but it’s a golden ale and not suited for winter.

Drank Three Tuns (Bishops Castle) Old Scrooge porter which was pretty heavy at 6.5%, but retained a lot of that smoothness from their stout so I imagine it’s made similarly. Struggled to taste the supposed gingerr notes, though.

Salopian Midnight Express stout tastes very confused. Floral like a golden ale, but heavy charcoal like a traditional stout. Trying to do too much.

In that case I would go with a nice glass of Camden Pale or Boston Lager pre lunch  082.gif xmascheer1
