Swirl Envy Class, and oh so busy!

Have you ever had those times when you’re too busy to even think???

That’s the perfect description for the last week and a half for me, which explains the delay in updating the Blog! Thank goodness for Scott and Elaine’s Blog, which has done a wonderful job of keeping up to date on the items I’ve been unable to report.

I do have some stuff to share, though!

The Combatting Swirl Envy – Lite! class was great fun! A small group, we had an enjoyable time sipping wines, learning the finer points of swirling and wine etiquette, pairing wine with food, avoiding wine racism, and enjoying the spectacular artisanal cheeses and wines from Valley Cheese and Wine!

To those of you are requesting a class location on the West side of town, be assured that I’m working diligently to make that happen. Since I live in the NW area, it would be an easier travel time for me! Meanwhile, check out the website and Local Wine Events for information on the next class upcoming at Valley Cheese and Wine on October 9.

Now a quick overview of recent events:

1. National Wine Week! That was last week, and I attended on Monday. National Wine Week is held twice a year and for a small fee of $10.00 plus lunch, you get the chance to taste up to twenty very nice wines. National Wine Week is held locally at Smith & Wollensky on The Strip. Many locals don’t make it to The Strip on a regular basis, and being down there during a lunch hour was a special treat for me. The website is http://www.nationalwineweek.com, and it’s worth the effort to take a look and make plans for the Spring!

2. The now quarterly AWS dinner at Café Bleu, the restaurant arm of the Cordon Bleu Cooking School! The wines of Banfi were featured, and Scott and Elaine did a great job of covering the event on their Blog.

The next posting (in a few days – I promise!) will be on the newest wine shop in Vegas. I visited there at length on Saturday afternoon and had a wonderful time! Stay tuned!
