Sorry, if you weren't 100% sure. But it looks like a party!

How about Scotts W's favorite wines?

And of course as a back-up drink Rons wine.

You know if everybody down here holding wine for Ron just brought 1 of his bottles that we are holding for him you would have more than enough great wine for the gathering,and pretty sure he would not miss it anyways

Or we could just have So Cal #42? with the theme being Ron's bottles

Make it mags or larger?

Does that mean Ron is coming? It's been way too long since we've seen Ron, so the wine is just a bonus.

Ok, peeps. Need a few things:

1. Final count so we can plan accordingly.
2. Theme: reds under 500 cases (I have plenty of whites that need consumption)
3. Cards Against Humanity: Klez-can you bring? We would like to start the game early so we can actually play.
4. Food: we will have plenty turkey deli sandwiches from Lascari's-good stuff. Need:
A. Appetizers
B. Sides
C. Dessert

5. I wil PM address later this weekend.
6. Bring wines that need to be traded. Also, PM me if I owe you-think Klez and RJ

Please post soon so we can get the ball rolling! Looking forward to meeting Pseudo and to seeing familiar faces!

Hmm. When asked, I usually say that my favorite wine is red. I love Cabs, Rhone varietals, especially Syrah and Petite Sirah, Zins, Some Pinot Noirs...

Since I originally was planning to attend the now defunct D&D weekend gathering, we could do a PS theme. I know that some folks are not big PS fans so if that is an issue with the anyone on the attendee list, it's probably not the best idea.

Also, as we will be flying in that day, I will be painfully limited in where/what I might be able to pick up to bring. In fact, if someone can sell me a bottle from their cellar (and bring it) I would gladly give you cash to insure that I can contribute something nice.

Haha posted two minutes before you did! I don't think you should worry about bringing wine since you are our special guest and are traveling from out of state! Looking forward to meeting you +1!

Sell you a bottle!? Are you crazy?
You're the guest, no bottle needed.
Klez can pull something from my stash to clear some space at this digs and cover you, perhaps one of those cabs I've been nagging him about.

Still hoping to make it, but as that is the final week of SWMBO's chemo before a week off to recover, my ability will be based on how she is doing. At this point, 50/50 may be optimistic, but I'm still hoping to make it.

Been too long since I was up to say HI and clink glasses as well.

Ok guys, I would like final count to make arrangements. Kyle, mErbill, Tim?

Also, here is what I have for eats:

Turkey/veggie subs-lost

Dessert-cortot (actually likely a delish creation by SWMBO)

Appetizers-Klez

Anyone else?

Also, theme: under 500 case reds

PM sent with addy

Please get back peeps. Oh yeah, I say MDS arrives at 5:30pm...

Probably accurate, unless I run out of money before 4pm!


Probably bringing some appetizers. Won't have any wines to exchange, since won't be leaving from my Wine locker.


FYI, there may be more traffic this weekend due to 'Coronageddon', the 91 closes at 9pm on Friday through late Sunday.

'Coronageddon' is imminent. Here's what you should know about the 91 closure this weekend


Edit: Unless it's one or two bottles. Let me know, so I can fit them in the cooler box.

I'm officially out for this one.
SWMBO not doing well (this week) and her next chemo treatment is Friday.

How ones' life can change after a visit to the doc...
If they're doing PS, take a bottle; but I doubt the production quantity would fit losts' criteria.

Oh my, I made that sound worse that it should have.
Overall she's doing quite well, it's just the ramp up to the third week of chemo, before a week off that has her down. This will generally pass by mid next week, and only one more cycle after this one.

UPDATE

No need to bring food or sides (but yes dessert-cortot!). I ordered party platter for 10 that includes:
rolls, turkey meat, mortadella, dry salami, provolone and cheddar cheese, and two side salads: potato and pasta. I will also have avocados for our vegeterian attendees.

Just bring plenty of vino!

On a side note, will there be a care package, cortot?

Sorry that I will miss meeting you but absolutely understand what you and your SWMBO are going through. A dear friend of mine just finished 3 months of chemo and had the cycle of "good days" and "bad days". Glad to hear your DW will be done with chemo shortly.

Hopefully catch you both on our next trip out west.
