I was asking Kevin what the theme of next Saturday’s wine tasting will be (there’s no tasting on New Year’s Eve, as we imagine many of you have bigger fish to fry that day, and we know we’ll be getting ready for our own big night) and he told me it would be “Life is a Cabernet.” I responded that we had offered up that theme before, and that the only thing worse than a terrible pun was hearing that pun twice, whereupon he proved me wrong by reciting it a third time. As terrible as it might be, however, I can assure you that the wines are of a much higher quality than the pun. The normal rules apply: the tasting is at 2:00 pm (on the 7th, not the 31st,) the price is ten dollars plus tax and gratuity, and the reservations must be made the old-fashioned way, by calling 326-9363, as web and email reservations won’t secure you a place at the table.
