Folks, I just got back into town yesterday after spending almost a week dealing with my grandmother's arrangements and all those legal issues that crop up.
Tomorrow morning, Kevin and I are heading "to the Hamptons," which sounds pretentious until you realize we're just hitting a corner of Long Island, really. We're heading there for TasteCamp, which I'll post about tomorrow morning. We're gone through Sunday night.
Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday I'm in town and have every intention of posting – probably about our TasteCamp experiences – and then Thursday – Sunday next week I'm gone again. On that trip we'll be cleaning out Grandma's apartment, which I expect to be rather painful and sad in its own way.
After that, life returns to normal and I can update update update everything from the blog to the calendar.
Today I have to deliver two different presentations on Social Media, so that's where my brain is right now. Tune into tomorrow to learn why we're headed "to the Hamptons" and how TasteCamp came about.
Thanks for your patience and regularly scheduled programming should resume on Monday or so.
Due to another death in the family (my grandmother passed away), we'll be silent again through Tuesday. Please have some patience with us and we'll return to our regular programming as soon as we can.
I've been fighting off spring allergies, swamped with "real world" work, aggressively promoting the upcoming KLP Scholarship benefit, and suffering from a bit of writer's block. But we're spending this weekend at my Grandma's in rural Indiana. No internet access. I anticipate it will be a bit relaxing.
Monday I'll be back with what I hope is my own little restaurant week, as we've recently been to Oceanaire, The Palace, and Red.
So my apologies for the dearth of posts, but I'll hopefully be ready to jump back in on Monday! Have a great weekend!
I'm off judging a wine competition for most of Friday. Because of that, the weekly Featured Wine Events post won't go up until Saturday morning. (I ran out of time for everything this week!) In the meantime, you can view all the events – featured and recurring – on the Cincinnati Wine Events Calendar.
If you have emailed me in the last week or two, I've been incredibly wrapped up in a real-world (non-wine) deadline. That's over now, for the most part, and next week I will start pawing through my wine emails, and I promise I'll get back to you.
Thanks for your patience!
Folks, I've got nothing.
Next week is Christmas week, so one-off wine tastings are few and far between. The following week is New Year's Eve. I have a post detailing the events I know of as of right now. If you learn of more, please post them in the comments on that post.
Other than that, remember that the regular tastings may or may not be occurring over the next two weeks. Even your favorite retailers need some time to enjoy the holidays.
Here are some posts to keep you up to date for the holidays:
Until the end of the year, I'll be working my tail off on "real world work" so you won't hear a peep from me for about two weeks. However, Kevin has volunteered to write about Christmas beer next week, so expect 2-3 posts from him.
Now that business is out of the way, let me take a moment to wish each of you a happy holiday and extend a huge thank you.
I have had an amazing year in wine, and I couldn't have done it without the support of you, my fantastic and loyal readers. I hope each of you have a wonderful end to 2008 and a prosperous 2009.
Wishing you health, wine, and wisdom in the upcoming year. Remember, life is too short to drink bad wine.
