It's also my birthday week, and I'm hitting a big milestone this year. I've had mixed feelings about it. In this weird world of Los Angeles/Hollywood, so many people are freaked out about getting older, but I've always embraced it. Until this birthday.
OK, just have to say it. I'm turning 60 on the 14th.
Of course, 60 is the new 40, right? A couple of my siblings and cousins and friends are hitting bigger milestones this year, as did JD, so it's not so bad - I'm still younger than lots of people! And having birthdays is a good thing. As they say, consider the alternative. And I do get those senior discounts!
As I enter a new decade, the future is still wide open. I'm putting together a small tasting group - it's been unofficially developing over the last few months, but I want to be able to meet on regular basis and discover new wines together, so I'm going to formalize it a bit. It's still going to be pretty casual and fun, but for serious wine geeks. You know who you are.
I'm also going to put together a series of wine classes - still have to find a venue. Might be my living room to start. Depends on how much response I get. I'm thinking about exploring a different wine region for each class. History, grape varieties, terroir, folklore, tasting, fun. Tell me what you think.
So...Happy Birthday to me! Please help me celebrate - drink something wonderful and tell me about it!
