The best Bar room table ever.

Forget about the part of this graphic which shows this as a bedside table.  I think the initial concept was to ward off zombies.  Zombies are lame, get over them.  This table should be in bars, the classy kind where people get drunk and fight.

Jay McInerney’s new WSJ Wine Column

I remember reading Jay McInerney’s wine musings in the now defunct House & Garden, and thinking to myself that with age, he had become more interesting while writing about wine than penning novels.

“My first experience with a sparkling pink wine took place on a blanket on the lawn at Tanglewood in the company of a girl named Joan Coughlin. The Who were onstage performing “Tommy” and the warm summer air was perfumed with incense and cannabis smoke. The wine in question, Cold Duck, was, I discovered much later, composed of two parts New York State sparkling wine and one part California bulk red wine. I eventually learned to turn up my nose at Cold Duck, but I think my fond memories of that evening may have something to do with my abiding enthusiasm for rosé Champagne.”

Not that I wouldn’t read another book by him, it’s just that his characters matured way more quickly than I have.  And I like to relate.

Newton Vineyards

While in California last week, I had the chance to visit an old friend up in the wine country and tour an outstanding vineyard.  Newton was established in 1977 after co-founder Su Hua fell off her horse on Spring Mountain (the vineyard’s site), and was rescued by a rancher who conveniently told her that the land was for sale.  Needless to say, she and her husband Peter Newton bought the property and the rest is history.  Only about 2500 people get to visit the winery each year, so I felt honored to be one the few.  The wine is fantastic, and White House approved.

Random fact:  The Vineyard was featured in Japanese Sideways.

Absolut Berriaçai

While we’re not fruity vodka drinkers, Absolut Berriaçai is a perfect way to get a weekend brunch started. Even drinking it straight with a side of pancakes (trust us).

Root

I had a chance to drink some ROOT over the weekend.  As you can see from the empty bottle, it was popular.  If you can find it, definitely pick up a bottle or two.  A nice video relating the history of the drink is after the jump.
