    I can't do that date, it's the date that I said Matt's fam was celebrating my birthday. :-P

    Saturdays are all booked up for me until 12/20 (except 11/29, the day of Alisha's thing), but Fridays I have 11/28 or 12/12. Otherwise, we can DEF plan something for after the holidays.

        Hey, I'm down!!! LOL

        Seriously - name the date and I'll grab my bottle of wine

        Oooh do any of y'all have Skype? You can actually see and hear each other! It's only $2.95/mo. for unlimited calls to U.S. & Canada.

        Let's do it! Online wine party! Now Martin can officially think I'm bonkers

          Ok, I was already thinking this... you've convinced me!

          Starborough Marlborough here I come....!

          P.S. Bubbly sounds YUMMY! We have some Veuve Cliquot in the wine fridge but I think Martin would kill me if I opened that without him ;P Sigel's (a liquor store here) is having a big sale on champagne starting today though! Gotta go pick some up!! Tami - recommendations on that? We tried a new one - Piper Sonoma and really liked it. Totally decent price too! But they have that Roederer (I'm probably butchering the name but dykwim?) for $15 off! I think I've heard good things about it from you... I always think of you when I'm out buying wine, lol

                The Piper Sonoma is pretty good. ;-) I am a sucker for Piper Heidsick (Sonoma's big brother) but it's $18 for a friggin' SPLIT at the wine bar I go to ... so I only splurge occasionally. It's not one that I sell, so I can't buy that one at cost.

                If you can find Toso Brut - it's from Argentina and is AMAZING - and a steal of a deal.

                Veuve de Vernay is pretty good too, as is Rotari Brut - for inexpensive bubblies.

                    I was asking the guy at Siegel's about the difference between Heidsick and Sonoma. He seemed to think that for the price Sonoma's a better buy. I wanna try the Heidsick tho!

                    Toso Brut... have not heard of that one yet! Hopefully I can remember this all... I think I need to get a Wine Notepad to write all of these down!

We're getting a membership to Costco (well, I'm assuming... ) from Martin's 'rents for Xmas so wine and all that jazz should start to get REAL affordable! I want that membership for the wine prices alone!!!
