Deadline doldrums: MacLean event cancelled

  • Print

Imagine my horror on Thursday morning when I got an email from my friend Mike at Banville & Jones, informing me that the Burge Family Winemakers 2005 Garnacha I reviewed in this weekend's column had sold out shortly after the visit by Mr. Burge a couple of weeks back - when I originally tasted the wine. The column was already printed - the Detour section is one of the first to be printed, as there's not usually any "breaking" news in there - and it was too late to substitute another wine.

Fine, I thought, it happens. It's not the worst thing in the world.

Well, imagine my horror when I received an email from Natalie MacLean's publicist not even an hour later informing me that MacLean had cancelled her Tuesday night signing and tasting at McNally Robinson/Prairie Ink. You know, the event I had mentioned and detailed in this weekend's wine column. It was one of those moments where I wanted to take my head and bang it against a piano - if I had a piano - like Don Music from Sesame Street:

 

Apparently MacLean is looking to reschedule for some time next year - I'll, uh, carefully keep you posted on that. In the meantime, if her book sounds like it would be up your alley, there are probably plenty of copies at McNally Robinson.

Have a great weekend, and don't forget that Beaujolais Nouveau comes out on Thursday - I'll try and grab some once it lands and throw a couple reviews up here ASAP.
