As the great unwashed architectural public dives headlong into booze-soaked festive frivolity, let the gossip levels reach a seasonal climax.

Try this for starters: Astragal has learned of a quite staggering decision; the social secretary at the RIBA (whoever he or she is) has decided that this year's Christmas party for Portland Place staffers should have a cowboys and Indians theme.
