Drink Local

Mike and I braved the weather yesterday evening and headed down to Brooklyn Uncorked at BAMCafe. Though it got a bit congested (and MUGGY!) in there, we had a great time sampling wines from all over Long Island and chatting a bit with the winemakers. The photo above is the only one I took while we were there, and I even felt a bit awkward doing so; I didn’t see a single camera out the whole time we walked around. It was a bit surprising, but kind of nice that people were really there for the wine, not for the scene.

Anyway, I was disappointed that we didn’t end up locating Lenn in the crowd, but that’s all the more reason for us to get our behinds out to Long Island and do more tasting.

You may be wondering what we did about food; though there were nibbles at the event (including some excellent local oysters, which we washed down with scoops of Wine Cellar Sorbet), we decided to forego an actual meal and have what we call “the indoor picnic” – a selection of cheeses, pate, cured meats, olives, nuts and crusty bread, all washed down with a bit of bubbly. It was a nice, low-key way to end a great day.
