Now that we're almost a week into the new year, I thought it a good time to do a little housekeeping, make a couple announcements and talk a bit about some plans I have for 2009.

New York Wine ClubFirst, I've added a new page to the blog about the New York Cork Club. Membership is growing and I want to make the club a bit more prominent here on LENNDEVOURS. It's my pet project and it's something I'm pretty excited about each and every month.

You may have already noticed, even though we're only a week in, that wine reviews are appearing a bit more regularly. That's because I've committed to posting at least one New York wine review every day, Monday through Friday. I'm going to try to include Saturdays and Sundays too.

2009 will also bring more non-wine reviews to LENNDEVOURS, including locally produced beers, artisanal food products and restaurants. There was a time in this blog's lifetime when wine wasn't the sole focus. Look for some local beer reviews soon. Maybe I'll even be able to get Donavan to write more here as well. If not, I'll pick up his slack.

I've got a few other ideas and projects underway too, but I don't want to tell you everything. Just keep an eye out for more information on some things I'm pretty excited about.
