Help us celebrate the running of the first Boston Marathon on this day in 1897, now the oldest annual marathon race (thought we should get a running reference in here somewhere); also Jayne Mansfield's birthday. I leave it to you to decide which was the more significant event. But we could drink to both.
Deal: 22 quid per head, includes: hot and cold meze followed by mixed grill comprising Lamb shish, lamb chops, adana, chicken kofte, chicken shish, chicken wings served with rice and salad, PLUS your first beer, and tip. Subsequent beers / wine / raki you buy yourself from the bar.
Vegetarian option available, but you must let me know in advance.
Payment: 22 sovs, to Dom, in advance (he promises not to leave the country). No payment, no place at the table. You can give him cash if you see me at a run, or transfer to:
Account name: D Haslam
Account number: 60380547
Reference: your name (please be specific - 'Dave' doesn't quite nail it)
This way settling the bill is easy and there are no issues about who had what or who left having forgotten to pay!
We need a minimum of 30 to reserve the whole bar area upstairs, if fewer we will have a long L-shaped table by the bar. I suspect if there is anyone else in that area they will leave quite quickly anyway.
Please let me know asap if you will be able to come. Those who have already done so via WhatsApp do not need to say it again - just send the money!
Hope you can join us!
