We've really jumped right into the autumn season here in New Brunswick, and things are swinging. This past weekend, Rutgers gave an admirable performance in the first Big 10 game ever. The town was abuzz for the weekend with many out of town guests. It was a cold and rainy night. They wore blue. We wore red. There's a little heartbreak at the beginning of any love story...and this is just the beginning. Here's a great clip that features Mark talking about how great this is for our wonderful little city on The Raritan. The rest of the world finding out about things you knew all along.
We've got quite a few interesting things planned for the rest of the year. We're thinking outside the box, even for us! We've got two amazing winemakers visiting in October and November. While we don't normally do wine dinners in the fall, we just couldn't resist the opportunity have these two guys in. On Friday, October 24, Roberto Cipresso will be here with a lineup of amazing Brunello that goes back to 2001. These are classic, old-school, masculine, sexy Brunello that drink well when young and also age with grace and power. Byron Kosuge will make a triumphant return on Friday, November 7. He is a master of California pinot noir and his last dinner here proved to be very popular. The wine dinners are $169 and $139; but if you attend both, it's just $269. It's an unorthodox move to schedule two wine dinners so close to each other, but we couldn't pass up the opportunity to bring these two great winemakers to you...and you may not have noticed, but we're rather unorthodox fellows.
