Perhaps it's the holidays, or perhaps I just have epicurean-ly talented friends, but this week has been all about the home cooked meal. My new colleague Derrick (@dpaezwine) is, in fact, a chef. The next time you need to hire, I suggest you look to a chef. Not only is he super friendly, organized, and … Continue reading I Eat, They Cook.
There's a reason Chateau Musar has the greatest and furthest reaching reputation of all the wines of Lebanon; it's great stuff.

Favorite weekend mornings included picking up the New … Continue reading Summer’s Over.

The entrance into my 34th year began with a tap, tap, tap on my foot. At 6:30 am I awoke to find Agustin with his … Continue reading Birthday.
