I am in a rather cozy bed in the Alfama section of Lisbon after having spent several wonderful days in the Alentejo region of Portugal, eating some wonderful food and tasting some fantastic wines. I only have a couple of days here in the capital, but before I headed out to explore, here are 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 this Monday, June 5th! Thus far, there is only one entry (that I know of), so now is the time to get writing! 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!
