That totally sounds like something I would do. If I had access to wine in CA -- which I don't. Unless it comes from BevMo or from Sparky's wine locker.

With luck, I'll be out there. Still waiting for confirmation of the work related stuff. Heaven knows I will need an evening among friendlies after being in the field for a week.

I really, really, really hope I'll see you all on the 24th!

Where is Merbills? What is the closest airport? Debating if I can stop in California on my way to Omaha (a little out of the way, but may be worth it).

Northeastern part of the OC. About halfway between Ontario (ONT) and John Wayne (SNA) airports. Closer to JW (about 30 minutes vs 45 or so minutes).

Ok, I'm officially in! Booked the trip yesterday. Now if I can go shopping in someone's wine cellar, I might have a suitable wine to bring.

How formal are we making this affair? A girl needs to know what to pack...

For you? Ballroom gown, elbow length gloves, and a tiara.

The rest of us will be lucky if we wear matching clothes. Klezman is lucky to be a newlywed, so molarchae will be dressing him.

And I'm supplying the bubbly for you. But if you wish a personal guided tour of the wine locker, I'm sure that can be arranged.


Edit: Oh, and Hooray on coming!

Lost,
be sure to take the six Pavi woot bottles from the mixed case order we split out and leave them with Merbill.
You owe me two each of the '06, '07 and '08 plus $51.77 but we can square the $$ later.

No, Sparky was right; I was bummed about the gown and tiara.

Hopefully I'll catch you at the next one.

Chances are good I have wine for someone. I suppose I should have a spreadsheet for that ...

You have a Scott Harvey Early Burgundy and a Cabernet Sauv (either 06 or 07) for me. I have a couple 2011 Scott Harvey Napa Red Blends for you, or at least Ron has them - he's holding 4 for me, of which 2 are yours.

Sparky, try to get to your wine locker BEFORE the party starts

I'm going to have to clear out an area to put all the trades down. Everybody, please label all your boxes clearly with to/from info.
