Christmas Lunch at La Petite Auberge

 

Reunion Christmas Lunch - but whither henceforth?

Enforced return to the office arena means I shall hopefully be taking either the Queen or Southwark council's shilling in a location removed from North London, although the group members are scattered so far and wide now that the ' North London ' has become a bit meaningless!This is likely to mean less frequent lunches for us.

Anyway - for the time being let's focus on Christmas Lunch,which is scheduled for December 6th at La Petite Auberge in Upper Street, the excellent French restaurant which most of you regulars have been to.

This is what they have to offer for £21.50 plus service charge :

I've actually placed a deposit for this which was only a fiver each for 10, but please can you RSVP by this time next week Friday 16th so that I know where I am and can confirm numbers with them. They would like orders too but these can be left until a bit nearer the time.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
