Important Event Notes
  • Promo codes are not applicable to this event. Upgrades and AE redemptions are blocked by revenue management - you get what you pay for.
  • No hockey puck beef will be served! If it is, send it back! (Unless that's actually what you like, you weirdo?)
  • The Do website will be down for regularly scheduled maintenance. Often. But we won't bother to tell you in advance.

Important Event Notes (real ones this time!)
  • The burger and Scotch theme is purely optional. Those are the specialties of the restaurant, but you're free to have a salad and a diet Coke, fish and white wine or whatever floats your boat.
  • Buchanan's does weekly tasting flights for a slightly reduced price. We'll have access to a few of these from recent weeks for anyone who's interested.
  • The Do host has not achieved Dorian's level of wealth and generosity. No T-shirts or other swag will be provided.
  • Reservation is under Adam Smith, but that shouldn't really be necessary. We will be taking up most of the main dining room, to the left after walking into the restaurant.

Per the subject line.

Looks like no WiFi on my flight now, so details and wiki to follow once I arrive in BOG this evening, but will be similar to last year's (thread here).

It's a bit close to the YUL 11th of May 2019 Do, but maybe I can make it.

Also, did you specifically ask permissions from the old folks on FT? They need to bless your thread before you can make theses announcements.

Yes. Took one to the airport this morning.

Nope, but November 10 or 11 we could do a LAS mini-Do if you like.

No. How dare I start a Do thread without that!

I really wanted to make it out to my first Do. Tentative for now but last minute nature of this makes it difficult to book travel. Will try. Thank you for organizing.
