Here are a couple of wine-related tidbits to whet your proverbial whistle:
- The Winnipeg Wine Festival's website has relaunched in anticipation of this year's event, which runs from April 27 - May 3. With ancillary events leading up to the big weekend of tasting (May 2 and 3 - an extra afternoon tasting has been added to the Saturday), hundreds of wines will be sampled over the course of the week in a variety of settings. Check out the wine dinners, themed tastings, and everything else the Winnipeg Wine Festival has to offer. It's a great event (one of the largest of its kind in Canada) with proceeds going to Special Olympics Manitoba. More on the Winnipeg Wine Festival as it draws nearer.
Oh, and the only reason I called this entry "The Final Countdown" is because I've had the song of the same name stuck in my head for about a week. Check out this, um, compelling cover
of the song (orginally by mid-80s hair rockers Europe). Everyone has to start somewhere, right?
