Two tickets for the tasting, please

All hail the internet. I didn’t get an attendee review of the GiraMondo events like I asked for but I got the next best thing – some clarification from the coordinator. Laurent Guinand commented on the post (I didn’t REALLY think there would be $7 cava, Laurent… allow me some poetic license) and listed off last year’s selection:

Prosecco Zardetto (Italy)
Gruet Rose (New Mexico)
Gloria Ferrer Blanc de Noir (Sonoma)
Champagne Nicolas Feuillate (France)
Ferrari Spumante Brut (Italy)
Champagne Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label (France)

(Mr Guinand clarified that this was a smaller selection and therefor a slightly lower admission price)

This year’s won’t be the same, but should be similar and a little larger. Okay, I’m convinced – I bought tickets five minutes ago and my darling girlfriend and I will be there on the 25th. See you then, Mr Guinand!

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.
