Saturday Reminders—5/27/17

Last week at this time, I was preparing for the Texas State Time Trial bike race. Well, let’s just say that did not go all that well. At all. Oh well, today is a new Saturday. After a quick bike ride, I am jumping on a plane headed for…Newark, New Jersey. Yeah, that does not sound all that exciting, but I will be getting on another plane, headed for Lisbon, Portugal. Yeah, a bit more exciting than Newark. I need to run off to pack, but before I do, I wanted to pass along a few reminders:

  • Even though the ride to Austin is over, you can still contribute! I originally had hoped to raise $500, but as of this morning, I am hovering just under $1000. If all of you give just a few bucks, it will push me into the four digits! Every dollar counts!

  • The deadline for the next Monthly Wine Writing Challenge (#MWWC33) is quickly approaching! This Monday is Memorial Day and the deadline is the following Monday, June 5th. The theme this go around, provided by last month’s winner Wining with Mel, is Once Upon a Time. All the details can be found HERE.
  • Last. There is still time to enter the Rodney Strong Master Blender Sweepstakes! You would certainly be remiss if you neglected to do so. The entry form is HERE and my write-up about the Sweepstakes can be found HERE.

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.
