We Interrupt Your Regularly Scheduled Programming To Bring You This Special News Bulletin
We have good news. We have bad news. And we have worse news.
Let's just rip off the band-aid and get the worst news out of the way first: We're not doing a Tasting this week. (I know, I know, we're heartbroken about it too).
But that leads us directly into the good news. The good news is the reason we're skipping a Wednesday. Charleston Wine + Food is BACK! The Culinary Village up in Riverfront Park opens Wednesday morning and the Opening Gala is Wednesday evening; both of which we'll be in attendance. The Shop will be open as normal, so feel free to stop by! But Justin will be in and out all day with Festival duties. He's also participating in events on Thursday and Friday and will be in and out of the Culinary Village all weekend. So if you're going to any of the Festival events or the Village itself (and you should!), you'll probably run into him at some point. We don't know about you, but we think it's great that festivals are returning and that the community can once again get together and commune; be it SEWE that just passed or Wine + Food (which is our favorite one for obvious reasons) and all the other festivities planned for the rest of the year.
Ok so. Thats the good news and the worst news. Now for just the run-of-the-mill bad news.
- How do you decide how much wine to drink? Take it on case-by-case basis.
- What’s the secret to enjoying a good bottle of wine? Open the bottle to let it breathe. If it doesn’t look like it’s breathing, give it mouth-to-mouth.
- It’s funny how 8 glasses of water a day seems impossible but 8 glasses of wine is a sign of a good meal.
- Did you hear about the crime family that took over the wine importing business? They call themselves the Sip-ranos!
- What type of wine is notorious for making you drowsy? A Sauvin-Yawn Blanc.
- I drank so much wine last night that when I walked across the dance floor to get another glass, I won the dance competition.
- Did you hear about the little grape who didn’t want to be made into wine? Unfortunately, he was pressed into service!
- Did you know Pinot Noir is actually spelled Pinot Noi? There’s technically Noir.
I was sat with my wife while she sipped on her glass of wine, when she said, “I love you so much, you know. I don’t know how I could ever live without you.” I said, “Is that you or the wine talking?” She said, “It’s me talking to the wine."
- Father O’Brien was driving home after lunch when a policeman pulled him over. “What have you been drinking?” asked the cop. “Only water,” replied the priest. “Then what’s that next to you?” said the policeman, pointing to the half-empty bottle of Pinot Noir in the passenger seat. “Good Lord!” said Father O’Brien. “He’s done it again!"
- And finally, thank God (pun intended), no more lame jokes.
