I have a few familiar reminders this week as I type this from a very comfortable bed down in Houston, Texas, where we have spent the last week visiting potential schools, looking for a house, and getting to know what will soon be our new home. Nonetheless, I am here once again with a few reminders:
- The theme for this month’s Monthly Wine Writing Challenge (#MWWC21) was put forth by last month’s winner, Jill of L’Occasion. The deadline is Monday, so you should be well on your way to your post using the theme “Second Chance” (#MWWC22). All the details are HERE.
- Several people have already signed up for my next wine dinner at Fare Restaurant in Philadelphia on January 20th (this Wednesday). This go around, the wines will all come from the Lodi Appellation in Northern California, which was recently named Wine Enthusiast’s Wine Region of the Year. Once again, there will be five courses, each paired with its own wine. The cost for the dinner is $75 (plus tax and tip, so $96 total) but space is limited this go around to 20 people, and there are just a couple of spots left, so call now to make a reservation: (267) 639-3063.
- 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 this Friday, January 22nd 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!
Have a great Saturday folks!
