Featured Cincinnati Wine Events: Sept 12 – 18

See that Sad Mac? That's where I've spent my week. Only today – Friday – am I finally getting back on track. If you have a Mac, I recommend waiting a month or so – when the new updates come out – before upgrading to Snow Leopard.

And my huge thanks to the guys at the Apple Store who got my Mail up and running again. Sheesh!

My big recommendation for this week happens tomorrow but yes! you can still get a seat! Better yet, it's only $20 AND you get a $5 gift card. Winemaker Alfredo Bartholomaus will be The Party Source, 1-3 pm tomorrow, teaching a Malbec Blending Seminar. I did this last year (and will be there tomorrow). You learn how to blend flavors to make the perfect wine. Or rather, he makes a pretty perfect wine. You (and me)? Well, it's fun to try. 

The other thing I want to point out is Restaurant Week. I would have written a post on it, but well, the computer … Greater Cincinnati Independents is sponsoring Restaurant Week Sept 14 – 20. There are 33 locally owned restaurants participating. This differs from the most recent restaurant week, which focused on downtown. This is [almost] better, as it focuses on locally owned places, no matter where in town they're located. Support the little guy! The web site offers all the necessary information.

Remember, all the recurring events, those dependable weekly tastings,
are displayed on our calendar. The one-time events are after the jump.

If I missed anything, make sure to let me know. For information on what's going on
in Dayton, you can refer to Mark's blog at Uncorked.

2009 Beer Stein Races and Pretzel Toss
Oktoberfest Games
Fountain Square
A favorite attraction of the Games and deeply rooted in German tradition: Contestants (Mädchens) race a short distance across Fountain Square with two fists full of filled beer steins. The winner is determined not only by the best time, but by the amount of beer left in the steins at the finish line. A second is added onto the contestant’s time for each ounce of beer spilled. Sound easy? The filled steins weigh close to 35 lbs.!
noon – 1 pm
