Oh hey guys, I forgot I was supposed to be writing the blog and I was busy putting together my five year plan.
What, you might ask, is my five year plan? Well I’ll tell you, since you were so kind to ask.
- Go to Classic Winemakers wine-making class in Lacey, Washington and learn how to make my own wine.
- Use my new-found knowledge of the grape (that’s what real wine experts call it…”the” grape) to start my own vineyard and winery called “Giant Eagles Fighting Dragons” vineyard.
- Wait 3-to-5 years for my grapes to be ready to and then cash in on my genius.
- Finally have a legit reason to get my full-back tattoo of a giant eagle and a dragon engaged in a mid-air battle with talons and fire and stuff.
This weekend I’ll be down in Lacey learning how to make and bottle my own wine. I have no clue what this will include but I put the link to the winery’s site above so you can do the research yourself.
I’m just going to show up and sponge up all the knowledge I can, although I don’t know what more they can teach me: I don’t want to brag, but when I was in high school chemistry, the strawberry wine I made won the “best taste” ribbon, and the rumor is that it inspired Deana Carter (listen to more country music, you’ll get the reference).
I’ll make sure to give you a run-down next week about how it went.
In other news: Game Night has been getting so super-awesome that we are going to be hosting it every TWO weeks instead of once a month. You’re welcome.
That means that THIS WEDNESDAY is game night. I want to warn you, my team re-took the crown and my wine rack is full as a result. Does this mean we’ll let someone else win this Wednesday? Absolutely not. We plan on winning again…I’ll get a bigger wine rack.
Side note: My team needs a team name. Something awesome. Any ideas?
I’ll also post this week’s tasting and specials when someone who actually works at the shop gets them to me (yeah, I’m talking to you MOM)…now I’m going to get yelled at for speaking so sarcastically to my mom (sorry mom).
See you soon. Perhaps Wednesday at 7PM if you feel like losing at game night.
