We have to be out by 7pm on Saturdays, thus the earlier start (2pm). But, there's a nice Brazilian Churrascaria called Agora not that far away. Mmm, Churrascaria!

Chances are we will be going to The Counter for dinner. It's a build your own Burger place that is BYOB. Just south of the 405 off Jamboree (so convenient for after the gathering).

And if everyone is nice, I just might open my Kent Rasmussen 6 bottles of Pure Heaven. AKA his bottles of Port sold on Wine.Woot lo those many years ago.

Right now, I think the only Saturday in September that's out for me is the 21st.

Well it can't be the weekend of September 7th.... Sparky and Rj have somewhere else to be!

Saturday, August 31st is Labor Day weekend, so that'll probably be out.

Obviously, 7th is out. 14th is part of Yom Kippur. 21st is out for Tim.


Which leaves Sept. 28th. Is that good for everyone?

Well, technically that wasn't a decision. That was checking to see if it was good for everyone.

The quick decision came after a plethora (well, two anyway) of affirmation (yeses didn't look right!).

But probably it is the quickest, since it is far in advance, but not too far! And not next month.

At this moment I can't foresee any reason why we couldn't go. So put us on the list.

Bump.

And I call BS on this theme. This is not an attempt at drinking down your cellar because you buy far faster than we could help you consume it. Are we at 10K bottles yet? If not I demand a recount!

Not yet, so no need for a recount. But how do you think I'm going to make room for what I buy?


Plus, if you weren't such a lightweight at drinking wine, you'd be drinking more than you do at these drinkdowns!

I've got 3 bottles of Halcon coming from you, but I suspect those are already at the Sparkylocker.
I've also got a bottle of Twisted Vine each for you and losthiwayz.
I've also got a pretty large swap with merbill going on, 6 bottles to him and 5 back to me.

Did I mention I'll be opening the Kent Rasmussen Port set (6 bottles)? Would that help get you two down here?

Yes Kyle; Sparky and I just played burro, and got treated to a wonderful spread of Paul's wares because of it and Brian's scheduling. We picked up a mixed case that had 6 Prado, until one got lost into my box.

Hmmm do I owe anyone money so we can settle up?? RJ did that Jemrose ever come in? We may never see Kyle again so he gets no wine or money

Jemrose; remind me. Likely if it's been awhile, and I can find it. I see Jemrose I bought in 2011...
When was it?
Was it a plus?

Ar will make the trip Sparky, I was thinking solid consumption items.
