Saturday Reminders—9/23/17

Back home in Houston this week before heading back out next weekend to Bordeaux to taste a bit of sweet wine. It looks like summer is close to being over down here as the temperature is only expected to climb up to 90°! I am going to take advantage of the cold snap to get out and ride a bit before a long day of watching college football and going to Sebastian’s flag football game.

Before I go, here are a few reminders for you:

  • It seems as though every week there is a new disaster and it is no doubt overwhelming to many. Hurricane Harvey seems like a decade ago, but there are still people struggling to recover. Thus, I have set up a donation page with Texas Children’s Hospital to help the families with extremely sick children whose homes have been severely damaged by the storm. 100% of the donations go directly to the families (full disclosure: my wife is the Director of the Palliative Care team at the hospital). LINK.
  • The latest Monthly Wine Writing Challenge is up and running, in fact, the deadline is upon us! You have until Monday to submit. All of the information can be found HERE.
  • Another #ConoSurWineTalk is scheduled for this Wednesday (Sept. 29) at 7 pm GMT (2:00 EDT) where we will be talking Carmenère—come join us!

Have a Safe 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.
