Another Trip to Studio Kitchen Tonight!

Just a quick note to alert you all that I will be heading to Shola Olunloyo’s Studio Kitchen tonight.  For those of you that have never heard of it, here are a few posts from the last few times I have been there:

Not Again!

Not Again! Part 2

For those of you who refuse to click on links, basically, Shola is an extremely talented chef that hosts people in his apartment and prepares a multi-course, amazing dinner. I have been several times (this will be my fifth, I believe) and I am very excited to go again tonight—with one exception: the last two times I have brought corked wines.  Being the ‘Wine Guy’ this always makes me feel like a schmuck. I know it is not my fault, but nonetheless….

I am headed to the basement now to grab some Champagne. Normally, I would go for am older, heavy hitter, but I am worried about my current ‘losing streak’ so I am not really sure what to do.  Maybe one more or less ‘sure bet’ and then another a little riskier.

I will be sure to let you know how it turns out—wish me luck!

About the drunken cyclist

I have been an occasional cycling tour guide in Europe for the past 20 years, visiting most of the wine regions of France. Through this "job" I developed a love for wine and the stories that often accompany the pulling of a cork. I live in Houston with my lovely wife and two wonderful sons.

    just bring a few extra bottles – you will do just fine! When I go visit close friends, I usually take a few bottles, but the leave some aside as a reserve, and if all goes well, I take my “spare bottles” back home…
