Reminder- Open That Bottle Night

This year's Open That Bottle Night will be Saturday, February 25. Last year, Gary and I shared OTBN with our friends Dave & Beth and we hope to get together with them again.

What is OTBN? In 1999, Dottie Gaiter and John Brecher (who write the Wall Street Journal's wine column) began a tradition. The idea is that many people, whether they are regular wine drinkers or not, have a special bottle that they've been saving. And saving and saving and saving. And the longer they save it, the harder it is to find an occasion special enough to merit opening the bottle.

Now, each year Dottie and John (ha, I'm on a first name basis, as if I know them) specify a date. People around the country, and even around the world, open a bottle. Some people make a special meal. Some people get together with special people. Sometimes the wine is wonderful, sometimes not.

Mark your calendar, Saturday February 25, 2006, and start looking through your wine.

Every night is "Open That Bottle Night!" at my house. At least lately.

BTW. I picked up a fabulous wine today at Central Market South. It's called Kalyra. You have to try it, Amy. They had a Chardonnay as well, but I only bought the red.
