I have changed location as we are so many and would like the run of the place. This is in JBR in the Bahar complex (same as Hilton JBR)

Cozy Christmas eve with traditional roast Christmas dinner with all trimmings. Full Xmas dinner 169, a la carte available too. DJ from 10pm to play all our favourite Christmas classics and ensure a lively party atmosphere.

    Apologies all, my flight back from London was cancelled after 4 hours on the tarmac. One or more of Christine[masked], Dominic[masked], Rima[masked] and Laurence[masked] will be there from about 645. I am hoping to be able to get to dubai by tomorrow night and if I do I will come straight to speakeasy. If I cannot then I will look forward to meeting you on Christmas day and if we dont meet then I wish you a very merry and blessed christmas.

I officially hate LHR now....but to make up Virgin has their trolly dollies dressed up as elves and the captain as Santa and they are handing out christmas goodybags and there is the promise of a champagne fueled party flight. I will drown my sorrow of missing you somehow. In anycase will buzz you guys if and when I land. Have a fabulous party folks!

    hi guys...I would not normally do this, but I am trying out ever option I can -
    I rescued a kitten from a bin this morning. I have already had her checked out by the vet. I would have loved to keep her, but I already have about 15 strays that I take care of on my own, and I do not have place for another one. Sadly if a home cannot be found - she will be euthanized. Can you all help me find her a home or atleast pass the word around....!! thanks so much....!!!
