To the gang, I will be sending in money for tickets to the August wine dinner soon. If anyone plans on going, please send me the $60 per ticket asap.

edit: Boy, I need to review before I hit that post button.



Hmm, is this sold out yet? Got a Palms offer for a couple nights but expires in September so thinking about coming out.

Cool, airfare looks a little pricey on return trip, but definitely looking at it. Anyone else coming besides the mommadebs? Imagine making it down?

OK, just let me know how many. I'll be coming up for at least tour#1, hoping to hang for #2, pending approval...

Got two woots, gave a bottle to the FedEx girl, drank one, so far. Eight left, currently, until I grab another one, or two. What, two or three? Four, perhaps? Could make that work I think. Way overstocked here and got carried away.

The FedEx office I get deliveries to is the greatest. Not only do they accept FedEx deliveries for me, they also accept UPS, GSO and an occasional DHL. Wouldn't trade them for the world. They average getting about one bottle per case of deliveries, and sometimes they even get their choice, subject to approval of course. I know them all by name, and they me. Phone calls generally upon delivery, unless I've already told them I'm expecting something via email.

Nope, nary a problem!

If you get 2 that would be great, if not we could trade something else if you like, I'm pretty open.

I don't think I'm going to make it this time - however plans could change, it's still 2 months away.

Has anyone stayed at the Orleans hotel? How far off the strip is it? Is it nice?

Never stayed, it's a short car ride from strip but I wouldn't want to walk across the highway bridge. Apparently free shuttles but to where I'm not sure. Seems like a good value with that rate. Check the palms and rio though, they're also on that side of the highway. I'll be at the palms if i go but it's casino deal, I can check friends rate if you're interested and tell me dates.

just wanted to add that i brought a bottle of this year's blend to NY #20 and it was very well received. good for BBQs, good for grilled chicken. many noted that the nose is very interesting and that it's easy drinking... i think HAK noted that while it's not going to go far, it is tasting better than at bottling or even a few weeks back.

Did not receive pm. If you replied to an old pm thread and I deleted it I would not see it. On vacation so I'll respond when I get home.

Shared my first bottle with a friend last night. We do nice work!!! Our complements to all the crushers and bottlers. Many thanks to sanity for keeping this project going!

Now to find the paint pen and label my bottles...
