Good lord man did you buy every time it was offered?



11th is bad for me, all others open.

March 25th works for us...

We can host the 4th but does it mean Riger won't make it?

I suspect as one gets older (Riger and RJ), one tends to forget there's usually 4 or 5 Saturdays in a month.

March having a 4th Saturday, the 25th for example.

And that's Erev Purim...which means we're all supposed to get sloshed! The three of us may need to use your couches if that happens

Ok, well, I plan to make it. You can have the couches if it's dry and and not too far below 10.

What to bring?

Oh well. Sorry to miss it then, but on the plus side, I don't need to look for the Blue Jay.


Someone will just have to wait until the next gathering for the LH Zin!

I like roessler as a theme but because they really only did PN it will lend itself to being a bit boring. Let's make a broader theme.

From this wording, it could be interpreted that the Tyger will be doing the raiding. If that is the case, i vote for lost's cellar as tribute.

A tasting and a woot gathering are different contexts. I'd expect a long vertical tasting to be rather educational and anything but boring!
