Unfortunately, it looks as though my travels are being delayed by a day, so I'm afraid I'm going to need to shelve this one till my next So Cal trip. Apologies...

So, it turns out I'm visiting my old stomping grounds to visit Mom and tidy up some unfinished bidness.

In the process, I'm planning on parking myself on a stool at an old favorite eatery/wine bar in Hollywood, so If you're in the LA area and have a Tuesday night free, to taste wine, please join me.

I'll have some wine in my satchel to taste and take notes on, and barring any surprises winemaker Victor Abascal from Vines on the Marycrest in Paso Robles will be in attendance. The eatery has waived their corkage fee for this gathering, so what the heck.



Bah! We're meeting at tytyger's place in Thousand Oaks on March 30th! Go there.

I respect your values; spitting is optional, and you're welcome to bring a bottle. Truly sorry I can't join you in Thousand Oaks on Saturday.

Won't be able to make it that early, but could probably get there around 7-7:30 on a weeknight up to HW. It's hard to get out of the office before 6:30-7pm!

Actually, now that I think about it, we've got enough wineaux at the office I might be able to convince them to have a happy hour on site if the wine just happened to show up!

2014: 28 bottles. Last wine.woot: Scott Harvey Red Re-Mix
2013: 66 bottles, 2012: 91 bottles, 2011: 92 bottles, 2010: 74 bottles, 2009: 30 bottles, 2008: 3 bottles My CT

....I know it's a work night, and acknowledging LA traffic, 7-7:30 is a perfectly acceptable time to arrive, and work friends are welcome as long as they like wine. If you think you/they can make it, just give me a head count so I make sure there are enough chairs, glasses and spit cups...

I believe it's not far from K&L Wines. Neil will probably PM you the address.

I've actually updated the first post with the location- all are welcome, but I'll look to this posting to see who's coming and will include that in the first post next week in order to keep a head count and ensure enough chairs....

I go back to Denver the day before.

Any chance you've been able to convince WD that you need to attend a "foreign" gathering in Denver?
