Spokane Weekend Wine Time June 18-20

Hey, you, sitting there in the bathrobe. Put down the bacon and the powdered donut and get busy! Busy with what you say? There is a lot of wine to taste and you only have a few days to do it. You work hard all week, you need to treat yourself to some liquid art! I suggest a cure for the cubicle, corporate and blue collar blues is a nice glass of purple pleasure! You can thank me later.

    Bacon AND a powdered donut?? You must live a priveledge life to assume all of us are enjoying a breakfast of such lofty deliciousness. Or, maybe the standard of living in Spokane is just that much higher.

    Hoping you’ll have some of this Spokane juice in tow when you come down to Walla Walla, champ!
