2017 – Wine, Home, Plans, #VegasStrong

I read tweets and FaceBook inquiries from worried friends asking if I was "okay." Okay from what? I turned on the TV and was unprepared for the horror.

Are Paso Robles Zins Ageable? A Vertical Tasting Tells the Tale

Just to be clear, the Zins were red, not the “White” Zins so common in the supermarkets. In general, "White Zinfandel" is simply a Rosé that has not been fermented to dryness.

Viva La New World! This is a blend that would make the haughtiest of dead Bordelais spin like a lathe in his grave.

The Artist Known as Prince. Reincarnated in Vegas?

I managed to drag my friend Shannon along for the event - okay, maybe “drag” is a little bit of an exaggeration. She more or less sprinted, ready to go!

The meal was an African Vegan-Themed menu. All the courses together provided excellent levels of spices and textures.

Rant Rant Rant Rant. My Opinion. And I Share It.

I will admit that some Napa Chards have exceeded the idea of balance in favor of the overdone ("What was that vintage? 2006 Louisville Slugger? Yum!") With that being said, I'd rather have an overoaked Chard than one that tastes like lemonade laced with pineapple juice. I want WINE, not a melted popsicle.

Vegas Strip Casino Parking “Fees” – How to Alienate and Anger Your Customer Base

“We come here to go to shows, spend money at the restaurants, spend a lot on rooms and at the tables, and tip well. This feels like extortion.” They “used” to like coming to Vegas.

MGM, Parking, and Delusion. Again. Snarl.

We – the locals – were spared having to pay the fees until December 29, when, according to the thought processes of the MGM Illuminati, locals would pay, too, therefore increasing their revenues by – get this! – millions. Hahahaha! Delusional!

Texas de Brazil – Brazilian Steakhouse Brings It

I always compare the smell of a clean restaurant to clean laundry. You may not know exactly how it's supposed to smell, but you know it when it's there.
