For one, it’s Wine Blogging Wednesday #33, with mid-priced wines from the Midi as the theme. Don’t worry Marcus, I won’t let the rest of the day’s events interfere with WBW. Wouldn’t be very "founderly" of me now, would it?
Tomorrow is also Brooklyn Uncorked, which just might be the premier Long Island wine event of the year. It looks like most of the wineries are participating and it’s going to be a lot of fun. I get to taste most of Long Island’s wines without going to events like this one, but it’s always great to have them all in once place on one night.
And, as the event has gotten closer, the list of people that I’m looking forward to meeting for the first time has swelled to the point that I’m not sure how much wine I’ll actually get to enjoy!
I finally get to meet:
- Tyler from Dr. Vino
- Neil from Brooklynguy’s Wine and Food Blog
- Jen from Last Night’s Dinner
- Stacey from Just Braise
- Amy from Greene Grape Wine and my cohort in the New York Cork Club
That list doesn’t even include the wine industry people that I’ve never crossed paths with yet. Is anyone else going
I thought that I might get to meet Eric Asimov as well, but he let me know over the weekend that he’s not going to be there. Too bad.
