On a random weekday afternoon, I popped into Gotham Steakhouse for Painted Rock's annual private wine tasting and celebration.
Everyone sipped on the fine wine from Pentiction. I stuck mostly with the fairly tasty chardonnay and merlot. Forgive me, I know next to nothing about wine or wine culture. I just know when I like it and it tastes good.
It was a nice, fun setting done classy. I was surprised by how many people showed up. Fellow guests and I remarked that no one seems to work anymore. They all probably just found suitable excuses to drink copious amounts of wine during the day.
I met with all the usual lifestyle, food, and dining writers mingling about with our constantly refilled glasses of red and white fine wines, nibbling on yummy appetizers in the middle of a Thursday afternoon.
Randomly while Dennis and I were sitting by the window, host and broadcaster (our friend) Meena Mann was in the midst of a mini-little photo shoot with her wine. Needless to say, we thought it was pretty amusing. It was all-around fun times indeed.
