    We go tasting wine at the local winery`s about once a month now, it was two to three times a month when we first moved here..Today we like certain ones, they have nice grounds so we can buy a bottle and then hang and eat a picnic.

It`s usually only the really snooty people that frown upon drinking wine from a bottle topped with a cap. If you really like Spanish reds, you might want to look into a brand called Hard Core. It`s a Spanish varietal that is really good, IMO.

    On reds, pinot noir is the varietal that I gravitate to, but I enjoy about any good red...whites its mainly chardonnay, I`m really mainstay on that area, sav blancs are OK but only for summer hot weather for me.

    I could go on about this for hours, again living here in the wine country taints you in lots of ways

    It`s the German cars that did it to us. Or maybe all of the years being crew chiefs on C-130`s??

    And I thought things were tough in Cali &Vega$...Good Greif

    $700 for Dinner(with Tip) is Ridiculous.I will never pay more than $200 for any Meal(Wife & I, and it had better be a special occasion)I mean in 24hrs or less I will be unloading it out my backside.

    Next time try tha Buffet...Maybe not as Elegant. But think of all tha Wax you could buy.

    Last time I was in Vega$.....Oh never mind

    Re: Lunch/dinner thread.

    What did you guys have? I see the creme brulee, cavier, duck entre and I`m guessing that`s the wine at the top. The prices really don`t look so bad, especially for the entres and the desserts.

    Re: Lunch/dinner thread.

    Just got back from Chinese food with my extended family. I`m leaving here tomorrow, finally starting to turn home. I get more excited the closer I get, mostly because I`ll get to clean my car properly for the first time in months.

    Even sometimes I, in a moment of what could only be described as pure sanity, question the rationality of this obsession.
