Ok, I KNOW it's not a great wine, and I KNOW that opinions vary greatly on its worth and on all of the hype surrounding the debut of the wine every year on the third Thursday in November, but I've always loved quaffing a few glasses of the stuff on that traditional Thursday. When I lived near Washington DC in the 80's it was a big deal, with restaurants and bars competeing to serve dthe first glass, pop the first cork, etc. It was pure fun, not at all serious.
And its a great excuse to get out of the house one night for something other than work.
So does anyone know who will be pouring the stuff this year? A few years ago La Terrasse planned a dinner all around the day, with flights of different BNs, and it was a nice evening. Dont think theyre doing that this year. A call there, and they didnt know what I was talking about. I'm sure Brassierie Perrier will pour some, but where else?
And at the risk of getting in trouble, anyone up for sampling a couple of glasses somewhere next Thursday?
