I read the above to my husband and, unable to wait another minute for the N of night in OTBN, we headed out to a local wine bar and started with Dampierre NV Champagne and Chateau De Candale Bordeaux .
(I lied, actually they have a wrinkle cream ad that I didn’t want you to know about. There’s not enough for all of us. I’ll be 50 in a month and I’ve just recently stopped getting the “No, you don’t look 48.” or “Wow, you sure look great for 49.” When I tell people that I’ll be 50 they just say…nothing. But at least they have the decency to offer me a wrinkle cream to enjoy…after I enjoy my wine.)
A little bit of History about Open That Bottle Night: Most winos have a bottle of wine sitting around that is too fancy or expensive to open on just any old Saturday night. After years of saving, the perfect moment never seemed to come and the bottle is just collecting dust in your ‘under the sink wine cellar.’
