It's actually about 1:45 on Sunday morning (Saturday night) but I'm back-dating because no one really reads this between midnight and 2 a.m. on Saturday night, plus I'm admitting what I'm doing, so I figure it's excusable. We had an all-day law firm social event that involved a wine tasting and a vineyard and then a hanging out / eating lots of food afternoon and evening.


1. There is this weird thing called "ice wine," made out of frozen grapes, that has the consistency of maple syrup and tastes really, really terrible. Even if someone charges like $35 for a bottle of it. I don't drink very much at all, so maybe I'm just missing the point of this thing. But I really just didn't get it.

2. There are lots of ways to grow grapes. They showed us 8 different ways. You don't want more details than that, trust me. Although if you're having trouble sleeping....

3. Sunscreen: good invention. I'm glad I remembered to bring it.

4. Water: good invention. Although it makes you pee a lot.

5. Food: good invention. Although sometimes enough is enough and it just gets silly.

6. There is a company called "Rent A Tent" and they do exactly what it sounds like. Do people grow up dreaming of being in the tent rental business?

7. Glassware + Pool = Broken Glass + Bare Feet. Just a cautionary note. I actually don't think there were any incidents. But I could imagine one.

8. "Rent A Tent." Really. I can't get over that one.
