Saturday Reminders–12/12/15

I am sitting here on my couch, not quite sure that I am ready for the boys’ basketball seasons to begin today. Once again, I will be coaching both of their teams, and we have a lot to live up to: last year, Sebastian’s team was undefeated (they have no playoffs however) and Nathan’s team lost only once on the way to winning the championship.

So yeah, no pressure….

Nonetheless, I have a few reminders this Saturday:

  1. There are a few days left to vote in this month’s Monthly Wine Writing Challenge (voting ends Monday). As of this morning, it is still a fairly tight contest, so be sure to read the posts and make your choice! All the details can be found HERE.


  2. I will be hosting another wine dinner at our local restaurant, Fare Restaurant on Fairmount Avenue here in Philadelphia. It will be a five course meal (including desert), paired with five different sparkling wines from around the world for $75 plus tip. The dinner is scheduled for this Wednesday December 16th at 6:30. There are a few spots still left, so if you would like to go either shoot me an email or call the restaurant and make a reservation: (267) 639-3063.
  3. As some of you may recall, I am a Spinning Instructor and once the weather changes to Fall, I start conducting wine tastings following a Friday evening class (the owner of the gym where I teach Spinning classes does not believe that people drink wine in the Summer). Well, the next of those such events is scheduled for December 18th at 7:00. So if you are in Philadelphia and would like to partake, drop me an email (jeff(at)thedrunkencyclist(dot)com). But do it quickly! There are only a few spots left!spinning

Have a great Saturday folks!


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.

  1. Did you get my email? I emailed my SW with the update I wasn’t sure. Congrats by the way for making the list of top 100 most influential wine bloggers in 2015!!!
