Two Reminders

I have two quick reminders to send your way:

Reminder #1: Today is technically the last day to get your entry in for the Monthly Wine Writing Challenge (#MWWC12). You actually have until about 8:00 a.m. East Coast US time to get it in as I will be putting the voting poll together at that time. given that there are currently only nine entries, I am toying with the idea of extending the entry deadline a few days (to give you some perspective, we have been typically getting 15-20 entries per contest).

We have yet to hear from some MWWC stalwarts: binNotes, Cheap Wine Curious, Confessions of a Wine Geek, The Drunken Cyclist, Duff’s Wine, Food Wine Click, From Vinho Verde to Barolo with Love, Oenophilogical, Please Bring Me My Wine, renenutet13, Rockin Red Blog, Talk-a-Vino, The Wine Raconteur, Wine Ramblings

Here are the entries so far:

Dracaena Wines

The Epicurious Texan

A Famished Foodie

Grapeful: the blog

JVB Uncorked

My Custard Pie

The Sybarite

The Winegetter

The Wine Snark

Reminder #2: Last week, I presented a different take on the Secret Santa concept, known as the Secret Wino. Last year, there were around 15 people who participated, and I think pretty much everyone enjoyed it. This year, based on the requests to do it again (and a bit more readership of my blog), I anticipated that there would be a lot more interest (and therefore a bit more work organizing it), but that has yet to occur. Thus far, there are a whopping FOUR people that have emailed me (see below) to participate:

DebraB (Booking It)

Linda (aka from From Vinho Verde to Barolo with Love)

Michelle (Rockin Red Blog)

Pamela (Señorita Vino)

 

Remember: Even if you participated last year, you need to send me your address and wine preferences (if any) AGAIN this year. Send it to jeff (at) thedrunkencyclist (dot) com

Last, “they” say that every blog post should have a picture, so here you go–can you name where it is (Hint: it is from a wine town…)?IMG_3051

 

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.

  4. Ok, Ok, Ok! I’ve been on deadline for a presentation I’m giving in NYC Thur – argh – so painful. But have the whole “local” story in my head….time to dump – may not be pretty – but should be pretty interesting – in a good but more likely bad way…. 😉 An extension is not a horrible idea – but I think I can get you something by stroke of midnight like last time – I roll like that….just ask the sponsors of this conference presentation…oy vey.

  5. I would love to participate in the Secret Santa idea, as I’ve done those in the past (albeit not wine-centric.) However, being in the middle of closing on a house and having to move again, I’m afraid it is not in the cards this year. Maybe next year!
