The 50th Dream

My bro is 50 this December, right at the end of it. Trying to work out something sufficiently splendid for his tastes is hard.
I've already got in touch with the Beeb  - no,they won't let us watch the filming of Doctor Who,no they won't let us borrow a dalek;  makes you wonder what the license fee is for.*
There's the Mysterious Package Company, which I would go for, but that's an over months thing, they may be late, and it still leaves us with nothing for the day.https://www.mysteriouspackage.com/
There's the College of Wizardy LARP but the latest event is in November.http://www.cowlarp.com/

A friend has suggested an evening's dining at the Ritz in one of the private rooms. Now I like the sound of this, but the only two rooms left are the Queen Elizabeth and the William Kent https://www.theritzlondon.com/events-weddings/capacities-dimensions-and-floorplans/ which come together at 5grand up until midnight with added £500 per hour after.This includes VAT, but doesn't include the food,starting at £79 per person for the set menu, drinks,decoration or entertainment.And what would we all do anyway?

I have a vision in my head born of my brother's hobbies and obsessions.We would all turn up in pure best, black tie,tuxes, cocktail and evening gowns, and swan around the Queen Elizabeth room til time to dine is announced, at which point we would eat and quaff in the William Kent most elegantly... then the service would provide us with dice, books, and the Gary Gygax AD&D screen and we'd play til dawn rose over Green Park.

I don't know if Bro would laugh or cry...

*Reading this I wonder if I need to signal vague ironic overtones or something. Which just shows it is possible to spend too long on FB.
