Think molarchae and I saw you two by the Marina wine locker/wine store a couple weeks ago. Figured out who it was too late to say hi.

Might be. You mean LA Wine Co. (or Bev Warehouse)? Or?

And if we can make it, I think redhead11 may bake something to bring (but we'll see)...

Sorry we won't be able to make it, especially since you've gotten a terrific assortment of wooters to turn out. You're all going to have a great time.

The one at the back...I think that's Bev Warehouse, right? It was my first time and I was consumed with checking the Scotches and microbrews.

Sorry to hear that! It'd be nice to see you again! Do you want me to send your bottle(s) with somebody or just hold on for the next time?

Yep that's Bev Warehouse. We don't shop there much but like to see what they have. Did you pick up anything good (scotch-wise)? You should definitely check out K&L for scotch/bourbon too (we'll discuss more at the housewarming).

Since I have some for you, and there will certainly be other opportunities, you can hold them if you want. If you have space issues, Sparky probably has some room in his huge new locker.

Not for long ... especially with D&D coming up.


I think I will bring both the Pedroncelli & Rasmussen Ports. And a wine TBD.

Only thing I picked up was a refill for my Triple Sec. I'm well overstocked on Scotch at the moment. They did have some interesting stuff though.

Picked up a bunch of supplies today: latke ingredients, chips, dips, a special dessert treat molarchae is planning to make, and a brisket. Hope you guys come with at least some appetite!

Brisket = bigger reds. Sparky's bringing dessert wines and I'm bringing bubbles like tyger. Is someone bringing something bold and red? If not, I'll be happy to. Requests! Ask away!

Well, SWMBO says we should pass on our screening of the NY Critics Best Pic of the Year winner and the panel with the director of the year winner to join you for the housewarming after all! We'd love to be there in time for candles but we are seeing another film earlier with a post-panel which should end just after 5 pm. She'll make a tasty dessert to bring so we have to stop home on the way and should be there just past 5:30 or so. Maybe we should coordinate so she isn't making something too similar to molarchae (she wants to buy the ingredients tomorrow) - so PM me.

As usual, your reading skills are lacking. There's a TBD wine in there as well.

Could be white. Could be red. But it won't be a dessert wine.

If anybody is planning on trying to pair the brisket, I should mention that it's Jewish style not Texas style. That means more savoury and not at all smoky. I've also got plenty of big reds I can pull out of the cabinet.

Unless something terrible happens, we will be there. I’m scheduled to have the pin removed for my hand on Friday, so we believe that means I’ll have less pain. However, you know how it is with medical stuff. Looking forward to it -- sounds like fun.

Two bottles @ $18.25 each means cash or check for $36.50 (cash is king).

I once paid an eBay seller, who somewhat po'd me, her thirty something bill in pennies. Cost me a bit to ship 'em, but was well worth it. She even posted back in feedback how she went to so-n-so place to use the change counter for an extended period of time.

I did get positive feedback. Rather think she knew why I did that.

Well, almost on my way ... after breakfast & visiting 2 cemeteries with mom, putting up her holiday lights, picking up a prescription for her, dropping off 12.12.12 with my son, and hitting the wine locker, I got home. Where I found a minor glitch in the Holiday Lights. So have to fix that HO! HO! HO!

Sadly, memory is failing, since the KR Verdhelo Forte is not where I thought it was. So I'm bringing a 2006 Wellington Port as well as a Concannon PS Port.

Oh, and a Woot Cellars Boss Monster and a Madison Cellars 2004 Syrah.
