As Labour donors prepare to break bread with the Welsh political and rugby establishment (well, one or two of them), the Liberal Democrats are gearing up for their own fund-raising conference in Swansea.
Keen readers of this blog, both of you, will remember how the Lib Dems offered companies the chance to sponsor a reception hosted by the Welsh Assembly Member Peter Black. This will jog your memory.
Sadly, I can reveal that, despite the knockdown price of £800 for the whole reception - roughly the cost of a single main course with Welsh Labour - there was a slight shortage of blue-chip companies, or indeed fish-and-chip companies, prepared to sponsor the bash. It won't now take place.
Peter himself tells me: "I asked and was told that there were no offers for the reception that was advertised in my name."
So the rest of us will just have to make alternative plans - as if being bumped off the guest list for Katie and Alex's wedding was not enough of a blow for one week.
The Lib Dems tell me that despite their failure to sell Peter's party, their £45-a-head conference dinner is sold out.
The guest speaker is Evan Harris MP who, I am told by the Lib Dems, is "very, very funny."
Perhaps it's the way he tells them. Swansea beckons. See you at Paddington.
