neat. I also would like to reduce my wine numbers, but i'm in PAsadena storage. Unless I move all mine down towards yours. remind me the link and how much tey cost?

I can bring a large stash...
10th probably preference, though 17th might also be better

The point is to drink down zTimBz and My cellars, not yours!

The 10th may be too close (2 weeks) now, and the 17th doesn't work for me anymore. The 24th is Scott Harvey's Wine Stomp in Amador, which I could miss.

Depends on zTimBz's availability as well.

Oct 1st is out for me, since I'll be bottling Sparky's Syrah up in Ventura at 2:00pm. You guys are welcome to join me in bottling. Each couple that helps will get a bottle. Plus we can hit Santa Barbara area wineries that weekend!

9/10 would be out for me and my +1. We have a concert on 9/9 and an early commitment on 9/11. 9/17 is likely out too so farther out for September or early October would be my vote.

It's last minute, but I could do the 10th.

The 17th is out for me - dance practice for the Playford Ball. (Ditto the 18th, plus that weekend is LB Pirate Faire.)

Made plans for this weekend (10th), but the 24th is now open (not going up to Scott's, since the next week is my IT conference). So how does Sept. 24th work for everyone?

Jeebus, it's damn hard to find a free weekend these days.

Sister's bday celebration. Next weekend I'll be out of town as well.


We could try a Friday night, possibly. I think they might let us do that. I'll check and see on Monday.

Weekend of the 15th is a birthday weekend for us as well, but we were waiting to see if others were ok for that date before letting you know if we could swing it. Since Tim can't do it that weekend, let us know the other options of course. At least this means we all have a lot of activities in our lives, which is a good thing.

Or would the 5th be better? Mewalk is coming down the 14th, so I might move my Syrah bottling to that weekend and we could do the raid on the 5th instead?

No, no, no... let's do the raid on the 12th and you go ahead and bottle on the 5th. That's what you get for teasing... neener.

Excellent!


Now, what time do we want to start? Realizing that we have to be out by 7pm (they close up then).

Do we want that room again, or the area by my wine lockers?

Also, there are some restaurants where Tim & I get discounts on corkage. Houston's is nice, and we ate at Lucille's (not on the list) last time.

They don't open until 10, so I will call then to see what is available. Hopefully the kitchen is still open, or the area in the first picture (right by 2 of my lockers).
