Casually Drinking Wine
Most popular: Like most industries, or higher end products, the beverage world attracts stereotypes and bad reputations due to pretentiousness. As a team, we prefer comfort over snobbery, and avoid too much geekiness, because what's the point if you scare everyone away? It's always refreshing to see very successful individuals in our line of work feel the same way. This week our post covering Danny Meyer's wine rules including, "keep a half-dozen open bottles in your fridge at all times", happened to be the most viewed. Here it is, "Culinary legend Danny Meyer talks #wine & comfort in this @Islewine article: http://ow.ly/PLfI2."

A Salute to Those That Shake
More on: We heard from a few friend's that were in New Orleans for an extended weekend attending Tales of the Cocktail. Were we jealous? Of course, but also extremely proud of the achievements from the professional bartenders, restaurant owners, writers, and liquor companies who work their asses off to deliver a better experience for people. It's always more than the drink -- it's the entrepreneur spirit, the passion to offer people a good time away from their worries, and build stronger communities. If you can make it to any of these establishments this year, please do. From our post last night..."Here are your 2015 @TOTC Spirited Awards winners http://ow.ly/PNG97.
