last night my dear friends muffin and captain hosted a wine tasting and bacon party with a twist.
everyone brought one bottle of wine priced $15 or under in a brown paper bag so that no one can tell what kind of wine it is. everyone lines up around a table and tastes the wine one at a time rating it either high, moderate or low. the white and the red with the highest rating by the group is winning wine - easy peasy.
part of the fun though is realizing that expensive isn't always best - i sneaked in a $30 bottle of red that didn't score very well at all. the win bottle of white ended up being a $3.99 chardonnay from drug mart. we are classy winos apparently.
on top of the copious amounts of wine that we all consumed there was a food side to the party. muffin chose the glorious pork product of the gods bacon as the secret ingredient and everyone had to bring an appetizer that included bacon. i mean do i really have to describe how good this vegetarians nightmare appetizer spread was? iiiiiiit's bacon!
after all the wine was tasted and bacon was eaten it was time for pure nonsense like stupid human tricks. i learned an interesting little tidbit about my friend drew last night that involves his ear. i think this 10 second you tube video says it all. (yes, i know it is sideways, tilt your head people - work with me)
try to do that with your ear. i'm serious, try - right now. stick your ear IN your ear. not as easy as it looks is it. after this i'm on a personal mission to find all of my friends stupid human tricks and get them on tape. who's next?
all the brown bagged bottles of wine ready for tasting
the night could pretty much be summed up like this, MOB with forks behind her ears
good times, my friends good times.
