I know most folks hit the Jersey shore summer. What fun for the kids! I hear the tidal syringes are very nice this time of year. But what do I know?
Here’s something you may not know: a few people have to stay in Philly, just to keep it from going dry. I don’t know why this is, but I blame the Quakers.
Year after year, we have taken on this truly epic sacrifice. We stay behind in Rittenhouse while our friends set off to the shore, 10 souls crammed into a three bedroom house. Last year I heard someone got bed bugs from an inflatable shark. Good times!
While you frolic in the sunshine, please think of us. We’re still down in Philly, popping bottles and teaching classes. It’s a hard thankless job, but someone has to keep watch over our city of perpetual intoxicants.
Some say we are born heros. I wouldn’t say that, but people also say I am too humble sometimes.
What I am trying so say if this: If you happen to get tired of the shore, we do have a few great classes in the offing this summer, including Beer, Pasta Making, and Cocktail Creation!
We also have a sale going: it might be time to stock up on some Autumn classes, too.
In another bit of news, our fearless leader is being featured on another local TV show –apparently 50 year old wine geeks are this year’s sex symbol– which you can check out here.
Hope to see you in class this summer!
