A good drizzly morning to you all, Feastlings.
As much as we Tucsonans revel in the rain, the number of quirky little hassles that arise as we handle the weather that Tucson wasn’t designed to handle increases exponentially these days. So with some of our lights out and the shipping delays that mean you’ll possibly be dining by candlelight for a week or two, and with the air return that has become a water feature and a delay in all things repair-related, I woke up to a downpour that immediately made me think there’d be internet difficulties that could tangle up today’s wine tasting. I’m maintaining seriously crossed fingers, and banking on the fact that the rain so far today hasn’t been accompanied by the winds that knock out cell towers and satellite communications, and expecting that the show will go on. I’m also hoping that it clears up enough that the entire neighborhood around Feast isn’t at home using the internet and leaving us with mere crumbs of bandwidth.
Worst case, we’ll be coming to you from our phones and blowing our data budget on the wine tasting, which I still regard as a worthy endeavor. You can still come pick up samples if you like, and wet your whistle with some serious Rhone-style reds today.
Then, come 2:00, you can meet us here:
Doug Levy is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

I’d also note that tomorrow is Ferragosto, and while we appear to be fully booked at this juncture, if there’s anything we’ve learned this past year and a half, it’s that nothing is set in stone, so it’s worth checking in to see if anyone’s canceled and you can come grab a morso, a spuntino or a cena intera with us tomorrow, when we’ll be giving a generous nod to the food and beverage culture of Italy.
We look quite forward to seeing you sooner than later, and vi ringraziamo. Tanto.
Con molto affetto,
I ragazzi di Feast
