Excellent meal @Auberge du Mail in Cormery for Martin's pre-80th lunch
In the private room @the Auberge du Mail, Cormery
Last Sunday (31st May) our house group (Les Huîtres Pétillantes) held our annual lunch at the Auberge du Mail in Cormery. We were fortunate enough to have the private room – the same room where we held our first annual meal back in February 1998. This time we had a pre-celebration for Martin's 80th birthday which he will formally celebrate on 13th June.
We all chose the Meni Mozart at 35€, which offered very good value.
Santé! Martin with a glass of sparkling Vouvray
Martin characteristically in full flow
