Saturday Reminders—5/21/16

I have an exciting day of packing up wine ahead of me today so in keeping with tradition, I am here writing on my laptop instead of being down in the cellar constructing and filling cardboard. No baseball games today (which is good since the forecast calls for rain), but a couple of them tomorrow. I am also off to the South of France at the end of the week, which means I should also think about doing some laundry…. Or maybe I should finish that article on rosé….

Here are a few reminders:

  • The date for my last Sip and Spin has been changed! The powers that be at the gym decided that it would be better to delay the class until June 17th, certainly making it the last time! I have been doing these Spinning class/wine tastings for well over a decade, and this one promises to be the best–I have a great selection of wines from Rodney Strong Vineyards! So if you have never been, and will be in Philly that Friday, give me a shout and I will try to squeeze you in!rodney-strong-sign-72ppi
  • Another “last”: I will be hosting my last Wine Dinner in Philadelphia on June 10th at Fare Restaurant in the Fairmount section of the city. A few details still need to be worked out, but the date is set! The cost will (likely) be the same: $75 ($96 with tax and tip worked in) for five courses, each paired with wine! Hopefully a few of you out there can make it!Fare
  • Last (see what I did there?), a couple of weeks ago, I announced the new Monthly Wine Writing Challenge (#MWWC25). The deadline is just a few days away (May 30th), so put those wine boxes down and start writing! As I mentioned, I will actually be in the south of France then (are you sick of hearing about that yet?), so you could make it easier on me by getting your submissions in early. (I know, but it was worth a try…). This month’s theme is TRAVEL  and all of the information can be found HERE.Travel

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.
