From a blog I used to have called Otherpeoplesblogs.
When your local bodega starts pushing pinot over merlot, it is a phenomenon. Or at least, it was a phenomenon.
(It is hard to see, but it says “NO MERLOT!” under the “Pinot Noir Here!”)
But can you still get Mad Dog 20/20 or a nice Strawberry Boone’s?
I’m liking the very “underground” Oscar push that Fox Searchlight is doing for the movie. What’s next? Packets of Camel Unfiltered with a tiny Sharpee-scrawled message: “Jim Jarmusch’s COFFEE & CIGARETTES Now Out on DVD!”
Jarmusch…. yummy… you know what I like.
I saw that the other day. And, as I was saying at poker the other night, it seems everyone’s forgetting that Pinot is a delicate grape that is easily botched. I have a feeling that establishment’s Thunderbird has a more robust quaff, with an oaky, filled-ashtray finish.
Week = made.
