[masked]Le Beaujolais Est Presque Arrive!!
This refrain will be heard globally and in the City of Roses as Francophiles and wine and food enthusiasts prepare to celebrate the end of the harvest season with the first bottles of 2009 Beaujolais Nouveau!
I have asked Beth, the owner of Everyday Wine on Alberta to procure an "upper-end" Beaujolais for our fabulous meetup group and she has worked with local distributer Kermit Lynch to bring us the best!!...I will be adding the maker in the next few days after we have firm plans for our "catch".....but trust me....it will be the best of the best!!......After all, our group expects nothing but the best, Oui?!!
We will meet after work at Everyday Wine.....and here's the plan:
1. Bring an appetizer to share....yes, yes.....I know it's a "school night" so yes, you may "cheat" and bring something not home-made.....BUT...no chips and salsa please :-).....!
2. You MUST post after you respond yes, under the COMMENTS section, what you will be bringing....failure to do so may result in you being "bumped".....ouch!.....for a slot for someone else...You will have 5 days to update your RSVP under comments sections to finalize your "dish" for the potluck. Please bring your dish ready to serve as we will not have use of a kitchen.....simple is GOOD!
3. Please bring your own plate and eating utensils with you......just pop them in a little bag that you bring your app's in with!
4. Event will last from 5:30 to approximately 7:30......
Fee is $16.50 and includes appetizer buffet, a couple nice size glasses of Beaujolais Noveau, corkage fee, tip and service in swanky Riedel crystal stemware!.......An awesome deal.....considering they are charging $65 down at the Heathman for their little soire....
For those of you unfamiliar with Everyday Wine......it is a cozy, locally-owned little winebar on Alberta street.....not your typical overpriced stuffy winebar. They have a terrific space with a huge selection of wine by the glass and by the bottle.....PLUS an added bonus a very cool K-9 that roams the place freely and may even greet you with a wet nose if you wink his way........
So join us for some fun mid-week revelry with Beaujolais and fine munchies, courtesy of Oregon's best cooking group.....US!!
