As much as I’m loath to dip my toe into political discussions, I have to admit that I’m shaking my head over the fact that there needs to be a Black History Month, followed by a Women’s History Month, and that there’s not such an integration of people of all colors, creeds, genders and proclivities that History, up to this point, hasn’t just been History. Instead, it has largely been the history of Plain Old White Guys. I regard myself as a Plain Old White Guy, one who’s reaped enough of those accompanying benefits to know that he’s got it pretty good, though, so I’d suggest that, as much as I feel that Women’s History Month is as much of an acknowledgement of the diminishment of women as it is a recognition of women’s achievements, it behooves us to stop and regard what women have brought to the mix in what, like restaurants, has been essentially a men’s industry. As long as we’re on the subject, you can learn about Women for Winesense here:
This Saturday, a woman we’re quite fond of, our friend Jennifer Brown, will bring four wines made by women to our tasting, and if you like them as much as we do, you’ll shop and we’ll need to order more of them. They’re delicious. The tasting will be the customary $15 plus tax and tip, and will begin at 2:00 pm this Saturday, March 11th. You can save a seat at the table by calling us at (520) 326-9363.
