  • Thanks for the heads up, I’ll be there.

    Man, I’d be there for sure if I had a jacket. What a shame to miss out on something like this.

    Hee hee, yes the temptation to turn up wearing a trully vile jacket and tie combination is strong. Dress codes are my pet hate. Well, one of several pet hates.

    I had celebratory drinks in a bar at the top of the Hilton on Park Lane the other night. The dress code was ‘smart casual’. I was amused to see the despairing looks on the staff’s faces as I showed up looking like a dishevelled 1960’s teacher. Luckily none of us much enjoyed paying 5.50 for a beer, so we left pretty soon. Good view though.

    There used to be a bar in Shoreditch with a ‘no suits’ dress code, which always made me snigger. I don’t think they actually enforced it though.

    How much does this shindig cost to attend?

  • Atlantic: Admission is free.

    Oh come off it. Go to the Oxfam shop, pay a fiver and get a jacket.
