Ah ok. So people who don’t have mcD are also allowed to attend the event? That’s a good idea! :)
Maybe. We'll have to see how it shakes out.

Wish there was one in Seattle!

Possibility is shaping up that I could be in NYC for work sometime around the 12th thru 16th in January. Could offer a '13, '14 or '15 if the dates align.....

After the various comments below, my best synthesis of an idea is to A) make sure we cover all of the vintages; B) get as many bottles of MacDonald in house as possible (multiple bottles of each vintage) to make sure everyone gets a good healthy pour; and C) have a limited number of non-MacDonald attendees based upon space availability who are willing to pledge bottles of things like Tete de Cuvee Champagnes as starters and d'Yquem or Nacional or similar items for dessert.
I have a '14 MacDonald, along with other horrible wine such as:

EMH Special Selection.
Maybach
schrader
Myriad and Sojourn G3.

If these wines aren't horrible enough, I have an '06 Comtes and '89 and '96 d'Yquem. Your call.

I'm good most nights in January, with a few exceptions.

Still offering up the 2013 as well as a great Champagne either the 1990 or 1996 Krug.

I'd like to play. I can contribute a 14 or 15.
Could also bring something from the neighborhood if we want to broaden the field (such as a Myriad Dr. Crane or an Opus One).

depending on when in January this event happens, I am interested.
can bring 2011 and/or 2012, I choose to let the 13's 14's and 15's stay sideways.

Hi,
I don’t have any Macdonald. Who knows when I will move up in the waiting list.
But I am happy to bring 2003 Chateau D’Yquem or whatever else is needed to complete the roster?

Sorry guys. I have been really busy with all sorts of serious family medical stuff since I started this thread. I will follow up with Graeme and Alex. I am planning red meat at the Bobby Vans on 54th Street in the private room at some time in January. I already spoke to the restaurant and January is quite good for getting the private room.
