Entertaining Entertainers

Nullam, Vare, sacra vite prius severis arborem
circa mite solum Tibruis et moenia Catili;
siccis omnia nam dura deus proposiuit neque
mordaces aliter diffugiunt sollicitundines.
I got a note from Mark (see Icons passim) earlier this week.
Are you free on Friday night? It’s my last day in London before Christmas, so I’d like to invite you to join me for a drink to celebrate. I will be at the Phoenix Arts Club [charing cross road] from 8pm on this Friday evening – the 19th.
Am inviting a very small, select group along, fine people like yourself.
If you are free would be excellent to see you and to raise a toast to … well, I’m sure we’ll think of something.
The Phoenix Arts Club looks like an interesting venue. You have to be a member to get in after 9pm - which explains the eight o'clock kick off. It is open until 2:30 in the morning, which means that the N155 night bus might well have to take the strain getting me home and I should be wary of scheduling any appointments for Saturday morning.
