As most of you know, I am moving to AZ the end of February. It is very expensive to move wine and there is no one better I'd like to share a lot of bottles with than the most awesome people I've met thru wine.woot.

When: Sunday February 8, 2009 - 4pm?

Where: Probably at my apartment on the far north side of the city

You bring a food item and I will be supplying all the wine for this gathering. Mostly woot wines, maybe a couple others too. Once I go thru the wine I have, I'll start listing the wines I'll open.

Attending
Imagine
- TMR
- joekerjr
- Walstib +1
- snk + 3
- Laura and Joel


- damightyanteater - ceviche (maybe?)
- tommy (maybe)

And I wasn't kidding about taking home furniture either! I have a lot to give away and some to sell, so if you're in need (or know someone who is) please send them my way. Thanks

I wish I could've done it a different day, but times are limited for me - I'll be happy to send a bottle for your tasting Will bring it to the Jan 24 dinner. And if you want to bring home any furniture, please feel free to stop by the weekend you are here!

Imagine,

My wife and I are game for this. Would it be okay to bring one of her coworkers +1? We can make up for it by bringing some extra cheese.

How graphic? J/K Anytime I want to do something new and I don't know how, I just hit reply to a post that has done it in order to see the code.

What's the definition of "obscenity"?

Nice tip... I will have to start doing that.

I am getting rid of my wine fridge for $80 if anyone wants it. It's a Danby, I bought it from Costco less than a year ago and seems to work just fine. I have the original paperwork too.

It's the 35 bottle model, right? I've got to check with my +1, but I'm pretty sure we'll take it off your hands.

shipments of Iron Horse & anything since that woot are on hold until it can be delivered in non-popsicle form.

EDIT: unless, of course, Walstib is going to take a stab at making a bubbly gelato! :D

Yeah, no luck on the Iron Horse yet. No tracking info, so I assume still being held. Mmmmm, wedding cuvee.

If Walstb doesn't take it off your hands, I am very interested in the fridge. I'll even make some cerviche for the party.

    My last 5 woots:
  • Robert Craig Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon x2
  • Woot Cellars Boss Monster Zinfandel Six - Pack
  • Armida Winery Poizin Trio
  • Olivestri Siloro olio nuovo
  • Wellington Vineyard Designate Cabernet Trio

Layne (baniak) and I are a tentative in as of now. We have plans the night before in Berrrwyn so just depends on when we make it back.

Edit: I should say what time we arrive back around will determine when we show up. I do believe to be back in town (far northside) by early afternoon at the latest, will know more soon.

I'm taking it home. (Though not necessarily that evening. We may use public transportation.)

I sure hope that doesn't mean no ceviche.

Just rescuing this from the 2nd page!

I have a lot of wine. Mostly woot wines - something special anyone is interested in?

Would you rather have a sampling of different wines, or all similar?

On the list of yes/probably:

Iron Horse Cab Franc
A Sparkly Wine - Mumm or the Wedding Cuvee
Was thinking about opening the KR Sausao with the Sausao Port
Wellington - I'll pick 2, have to see what I have .. a CS and?

Please, I'm looking for suggestions.

Thanks!

My parents are in town this weekend so I have to downgrade my response from yes to maybe.

Outcome looks dim according to the crystal sphere though.

3 more days!!

And only 18 more days until I am out of the cold into the sunshine!

With that said, I hope you all understand that my apartment is a *mess* and I have boxes and stuff all over. But we are here to drink wine and hopefully you'll take a box of "stuff" home with you. I wonder if I offered boxes of c.r.a.p. if that might entice more of you in hopes of getting something good?

Anyways - Sunday, come around 4pm - I have wine and I have a bunch of mediocre glasses. You'll even be able to bring your glass home if you like! I will shop and pick up some bread/crackers and maybe some meat of a sort - and I'll open the spinach artichoke dip from woot. This is a casual affair and more of a party than an official "wine tasting".

The snk's plus have offered to bring cheese? And of course Walstib is going to bring gelato?!

If anyone would like to bring anything else? Or we could just order some food - just about anything you want can be delivered.

Speak up everyone - What do you think?


edited: I misjudged and I could use another wine shipping case box, with styrofoam (or 2) if anyone has one lying around. Thanks!

We picked up a boring layered bean dip at Costco yesterday. Yeah it is nylon, but it has been one of those weeks.

I picked up crackers, 2 different salami's, a container of mozzarella, and I have the artichoke dip and some olive tapenade to go with some cream cheese.

If we want more food, there's always delivery. Nice and easy.

Hey Imagine, sorry for the late post.

We are still in and will be bringing assorted cheese and charcuterie.

I can bring the 6-bottle box with bottle inserts that the Wellington x2 came in recently for you if you want.
