Yes, I am blogging on my day off. Just because I care about my readers and I want you all to know that the ten dollar tasting at 58 degrees tonight from 5-7 is zinfandels. There, now you all have plans for tonight and you can thank me for it. We went there last night for a glass and Lisa D. let us tast a moscato d'asti that's called bug juice which is a very refreshing and slightly fizzy dessert wine that I would definitely recommend to beat the heat. She also took us back to see the reserve room and wine lockers (both rooms were very cool and smelled great, like fresh-cut wood). We also got to see the members lounge and Doug and Jackie Christie were up on some program on the flatscreen looking fully insane. I think they wrote a book called "doug and jackie christie committed" or something but I can't find any info on it. Here's a link to an old nytimes article about their, um, unique relationship.
I ate at Ricksha last night and it was surprisingly great, well most of it. Damn, now I used one of the only adjectives I possess to describe it and I'll have to haul out the thesaurus for the midtown monthly article. Today I'm eating at June's for the very first time, which is a special day in any girls life.
