Um, I don’t know that I am really all that much of a lush. But I love alliteration, and since alcohol was involved in today’s post, I thought I would stretch a point.
Thank goodness it is Lame Post Friday, although this will be the third foolish post in a row. However, I have a policy of not apologizing for these things, at least on Fridays. Policies subject to change without notice, but that’s neither here nor there.
I am late doing my post today, because I had to meet a friend at a couple of wine tastings at local liquor stores. Wine tastings at liquor stores are a wonderful thing, because you can try wines you would not necessarily purchase untasted and perhaps discover something you like. Sometimes you can increase your knowledge of wine and gain oenophile cred (although it helps if you know how to pronounce “oenophile,” which I do not) (I’m not even sure that is how you spell it, although my computer seems to think it is correct).
More importantly, you can often chat up nice people, or meet up with friends and have a fun interlude. Today I met a friend at Vintage Spirits in Herkimer and then we went to Ilion Wine and Spirits in Ilion. Full disclosure: if she had been unable to make it, I probably would have gone to the tastings by myself. But it would not have been nearly as fun.
I hope to do full posts about each tasting, sharing what I tasted and what I learned. However, today is Friday. I got home late and have to get up early. I have some relaxing to do. Also, I have to finish cooking dinner (ooh, maybe I can get a cooking post out of today as well).
In short, I hope you are having a happy Friday. I am.
