Saturday Reminders—12/3/16

Well, last week the game turned out the way I had hoped so I will be relatively stress-free for the next couple of weeks. My in-laws are coming in a couple of weeks, so that will keep me occupied for two and a half weeks. Both of the boys have basketball events this weekend, so I will be running my taxi service if anyone needs a lift in the Houston metro area.

So there you have it.


  1. International Cabernet Franc Day is tomorrow and I will be involved in a couple of hours of online chatting under the #CabFrancDay hashtag. So grab a bottle of your preferred Cab Franc, and join us on Twitter!
  2. If you have not checked it out yet, I was once again invited to be on the We Like Drinking podcast. This time, I joined Joe Roberts as we covered all the pressing issues in the wine world today.  At least we tried to do that. OK, well, we mostly just joked around while drinking wine. So if you have a couple of hours to kill, you can check out the podcast HERE.wld1
  3. The deadline for the latest Monthly Wine Writing Challenge (#MWWC29) is a scant three days away! Yes, time has caught up to all of us once again and you need to get your article done by this Monday, December 5th. The theme was chosen by last month’s winner, John of Pairs With: Life, and while it is technically not a word, it will hopefully inspire you to string a few words together in some coherent fashion and enter this month’s contest. Said theme is “Winestory” and all the details for entering can be found HERE.screen-shot-2016-11-07-at-10-25-49-pm

Off to do absolutely nothing! Have a Happy Saturday!


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.
