My sparkling wines, let me show you them.

Yes, a LOLCat reference. Sue me.

There’s still tickets for sale for GiraMondo’s tasting event tomorrow evening, Champagne and Other Bubbles. Back in July I went to an all-champagne tasting and had a good time. Tomorrow’s evening is not just French offerings – as champagne by definition is – but some sparkling wines from Italy, Spain and the US.

During our event the organizer and presenter, Laurent Guinand, brought up a champagne expert who I am afraid my notes do not identify. Tomorrow’s event will include Claude Thibaut, a Virginia-based champagne expert now working on projects at Veritas Vinyards near Charlottesville. I can’t say for sure if it’s the same fellow but I enjoyed the presentation from the fellow at our event. I feel confident that Guinand has lined up a similarly deft speaker if he’s a different one.

So if you’re as fond of the bubbly as I am and looking to spoil yourself slightly, I do recommend the event.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
