    Default Happy New Year to all!

    If you have to drive anywhere tonight, be very careful.
    My wife and I will be at home enjoying broiled lobster
    tails and a bottle of bubbles.

    Stay safe,

    Dick

    Happy New Year to you and everyone else here, too. I also don't like
    driving around on New Year's Eve, with all the loaded drivers on the
    road, so my wife and I will also be home, enjoying shrimp cocktail,
    broiled lamp chops, and a bottle of Argentine Malbec.

    Same from me.
    Just enjoyed a reindeer steak with Allesverloren Shiraz, now soon a dessert
    on wild raspberries and a bubbly Australian, Notting Hill.

    Bubbles and Freshly caught striped bass in fennel for us. Best wishes to
    all and hopefully a much better year than this one.

    Happy New Year's to all.

    Looking forward to tonight. I came home at 3 to Wovel my driveway (my
    favorite Christmas present ever! http://www.wovel.com/ no affiliation
    except as a happy shoveler). We'll have a light dinner of clams and
    udon, then we're going to a party at friends. We're supposed to bring
    appetizers, I'm doing potatoes with sour cream and salmon roe as well
    as sausage in a sherry rosemary sauce; Betsy is doing shrimp deviled
    eggs and pears with bacon. Alex the host has about a dozen family
    members from France here, he used to have a restaurant in Paris so
    food is dependably good. I'll leave Betsy to decide if she wants to
    not drink, I'm going to! Will happily walk the mile home if Betsy
    wants to indulge (though it's going to be chilly).

    Tomorrow blackeyed peas with a ham hock and greens.

    Hello,
    Spent the New Year's Eve with good friends at their place.
    Had two Champ's for starters - one without name (label completely gone)
    provenance c 60s, probably BdeB.
    Very good apples, toast, still peasant mousse and good length. The empty
    glass reeked of dried figs.
    Second, Philiponnat Grande Reserve Blanc de Blanc, also 60s (NV). Acidity
    pronounced, my opinion partly due to structure fading, nothing to balance.
    Mousse quite lively though.
    With paté Savigny-Vergelesse 1er Cru 1982 - we have had in all a half case
    of these, color pale, not quite lipid, bit of funk on nose, after some time
    in glass typical Savigny strawberries peeking out from the undergrowth.
    With venison:
    Delas Hermitage MArquess de Tourette 1980, slightly pale in color, very
    barnyardy, very much Northern Rhone, blackberries, liquorice on aftertaste
    Fourcas-Dupré 1989 extremely young, slightly austere, good structure,
    enjoyable but should be left in peace for several years

    At the stroke of 12, Fizz Palmer & co 1998, young and bubbly, charming

    With homemade icecream and fruit
    SChmitt's Kinder 2006 Sonnenstuhl Riesling Auslese, a Franken wine in a
    half-size Bocksbeutel - too cute for words, really ...
    Heaps of grapefruit and pears, slight fizz, good balance with typicall
    mouthcleaning acidity - way too young, really, but good.

    HAppy New Year to all!

    Happy New Year to all.
    I spent the evening at a close friend's place. His wife is a dynamite
    cook, and his 11-year-old daughter is a bundle of energy who kept us
    all awake! At the midnight hour, I was already nursing a local brew,
    Yuengling Black & Tan beer, a blend of porter and lager. I prepared
    for the big night by using my last vacation day and sleeping in late.

    I'll drink to that!

    We started New Years Eve at Meredith's Restaurant, a BYOB in Berwyn, PA. I
    brought along a really wonderful Cab Franc from Shalestone Winery in the
    Finger Lakes area. The Cab Franc's from this region have been really
    enjoyable. Our dinner partners brought a Joseph Droudin Pinot Nior, the 2006
    Bourgogne Véro. Very nice as well.

    Happy New Year to all.
    Jon
