The question is, are we talking 8/23 or 8/30? And who is hosting (Loweeel, Hershel, BunnyM)?



I ain't from Chicago, I'm from Detroit (okay, outside Detroit)! And it's ChEron... Personally, I would prefer if it's 8/23, since I -think- the Detroit tasting is going to be the 30th. Although if you guys want the 30th, we can do the 23rd... that'd work too.

If it's 8/23 I should be able to host. I'll confirm this in the next week or so.

If I do host, location would be in Herndon, not far from 267 intersection with 7100 in the VA area. This would be outside the beltway, and possibly a bit longer drive for those driving straight from 66 in.

I am happy to host either weekend.

The only consideration is that 8/30 is labor day weekend, so some folks might be out of town or have other plans.

Touchy, touchy. Detroit, Chicago -- to a girl on her own, it's all the same (100 points to anyone who name the movie that's from).

Sorry for the misrep; I'll be sure to correct on the next update.

As for me, both weekends appear to work right now. And Herndon is closer for me than Alexandria, though Loweeel's place has been excellent for each of the events he has hosted, so far.

"Dark and Delicious" Been called that more than once in my day. Sounds like my kind of party!

Personally, I'd prefer Labor Day as that's when I usually get down to visit my folks. Plus, it puts some distance between #5 and my conference in Atlanta earlier in the month.

Either way, I'll be there because Cheron is bringing my Uruguayan jewel, Monte Vide Eu! No, I won't open it there (sorry, I love y'all but some things are meant for "that special someone"...at least the first time), but I know what I will bring to this one:

2004 Pisano ArretXea (consider it Monte Vide Eu light)
A Tannat "Triangular"
- Uruguayan Tannat
- Virginia Tannat (someone else can feel free to bring this one)
- Madiran (100% Tannat)
and
Pennsylvania's first Petit Sirah

It's sitting in a place of honor on my newly finished wine rack. The other wines are jealous. I had to stop them from fighting.

Now to figure out what to bring... maybe I'll find a Michigan wine to bring...

Yah You find a lot of cherry wines out here, but they've got some merlot, and I saw a concord somewhere. St. Julian I think. No PS by a long shot though.

Don't apologize for Herndon! It's closer to Arlington & Alexandria than where I live, so there ARE worse options. And it will be a shorter drive home for JW! Me - a bit longer, but considering my drive now, it's not a big deal.

Date is more important than distance (though with fuel prices where they are I do actually think about that when I consider my cost for the evening, anymore -- it's now over $10 a day just to get to work) for me, so I am happy to go where the party is. I am speaking NoVA, of course; I'm not quite so as adventurous as Sparky or some others who have begun crossing state lines for these events. Very cool for the rest of us though.

Well I'm not apologizing, just letting people know that it's not closer to Loweeel's in driving, but for some it may be closer/further away for planning. Like I said, I'll confirm whether I can do this for sure, then we'll fight over who wants to host. After all, this will be Loweeel's B&B celebration, he may want to roll it to us at home

Finally heard back from my sis, and I am indeed going to be out there also on the weekend of the 9th. Personally, I'd prefer this be at Loweeel's only because I'm not super familiar with driving the area, and Lo's closer to my sister's place where I'll likely be staying. Or I may just say screw it and get a hotel room for the night closer to wherever it's being hosted so I don't have to do the drive

How could we have a D&D without you? Of course, we could just have a general wine party the following weekend too. I'd be down for that

Besides, the PS fest would be most fitting at Casa Loweeel. That way I could have them all out and breathing well before anybody else shows up. Plus I'll have some verticals... I wonder what I would do with all those leftovers... and this way, I think we'd have some people who wouldn't even need to bring wine!

(insert diabolically clever purple-blue-black-stained grin here)

Let's see... we'll have an '04 and '05 concannon. An Unti. A PSPS. The Dry Creek won't be ready yet. I could also string together a 4 year KRPS vertical, from '99-02, with the '01 being a reserve... apparently he didn't make an '03, and the '04 seems somewhat available as well. Maybe an occasion to open a Munch as well (but that's tentative at best).

My vote also goes with it being the 23rd and at Loweeel's, since I can't do the 30th as I'll be away for LBW (so the 23rd is the only one that works for me) and as I'd be taking the bus down to DC I'd not exactly have any other way to get anywhere besides L's. And hopefully getting from wherever the bus would drop me off to get to L's wouldn't be too difficult.

Or just moratorium until then. Also, priceline (bidding) is cheaper, but less convenient. Scour ebay for JetBlue vouchers. And you can save on a car rental by using bus/metro to the hotel.

This is the best place to stay in combination of quality, value, and distance. Sparky stayed there, so he'd be the one to ask about the hotel -- it's somewhere between half a mile and 0.75 miles from my place.

It's about a 15-min walk from my house. I'm just north of VaSQ metro, and this is just southwest of Ballston, which is the next stop west of VaSQ. The whole Rosslyn-Ballston corridor is metro-accessible and pretty easily walkable, with 4 stations, one every 0.5 miles or so.

For attendees, I am happy to pick up for you (or suggest that you pick up) an '04 Massena from WL while still in stock (~$30). As we learned at CWWT #2, the only thing better than X bottles of PS is an X bottle of PS vertical!

I will buy futures in smoked paprika and white pepper and laugh all the way to the bank.

I will also open one of my Prager PS ports for dessert. I think Cigars will also be in order -- I can supply some, but there is also a cigar store a few blocks away.
