The 22nd being a Friday, and my drive being 240 miles, it will be difficult for me to attend, alas.

Ohhhh, checking the date, the wife and I may be in. I might also check and see if my cousin and fiancé might want to join.

Looks like we are moving at the end of April, so I need to reduce cellar size. I have a few hopefully great bottles I need an excuse to open.

Hope the date works for us

I already have a half day to watch NCAA basketball on the 22nd. If I drive up for this though, I will be needing a couch to sleep on as I wouldn't feel comfortable driving the 90 minutes back to Rochester. If there is a couch available, I'm in like Flynn (whomever this Flynn guy is).

I can bring a Noceto Old Vine Zin as well as some beers from my cellar as my wine cellar selection is lacking.

I checked and it seems I carried over almost 3 weeks of vacation time from last year into this year, despite taking 7 days in December. So, I'll probably take a day or a half day and head into town.

I'll have to look down in the cellar and see what I should bring. A Tytanium? A Jana Cathedral? An Iron Horse Cab Franc? I see that Corison is already taken....

And if any of the beer folk are interested, I do still have some Trader Joe's 2011 Christmas Ale, which I think was made by Unibroue. Other than that, my beer selection these days is rather pedestrian.

That would be great!!! I would LOVE to try the Iron Horse Cab Franc. Granted all the others listed sound fabulous too

+1 more to the Cab Franc! Would love to try it.

I have a ton, almost literally, of beer...Surly, possibly our order of Dogfish Head (if it's in by then) and other random beers that are ridiculously priced. I'll see about bringing something with from that sorts too.

Looks like we got confirmation on childcare, so we're in!

No idea what we're going to bring, though. We've got plenty, it's just a matter of deciding.

Can I get a couch or floor space reservation confirmation for myself? Hoping that's ok with you and the hubby. I could even snuggle up with Chris if his wife and child won't be there.

Here and I said I had a pedestrian beer collection - I forgot that I have a bottle of 2009 Surly Darkness! I guess I'll have to bring that along.

Great wines, then great beers - this could be a DUI bonanza for some police officer!

edit - wow, I just looked on Craigslist and these are going for $100 a bottle! Don't be late, or you might miss this one!
