Christmas in July
Alright dear readers, lets settle down with a nice cold glass of your preferred porch pounder and have a listen to this yarn.
T’was the night before Christmas in July,
When all through OWS&B,
Not a creature was stirring save for Bistro Associates;
The new price tags set at $2 over cost were hung by the bottles with care;
In knowing that our patrons soon would be there.
The Cabernets were all nestled snug in on their shelves,
While visions of Riedel glasses danced in their heads.
And Bryan in his Chef Coat and Jeff and I in our jeans;
Have just settled down for a warm and humid summer’s eve nap.
When out on the sidewalk there arose such a clatter.
Bryan sprung from the bench to see what was the matter.
Away to the window he flew like a flash.
Turned over the closed sign and threw open the door.
The line round the building, all ready to go,
Gave a cluster of familiar faces all lit with a glow.
When what to my wondering eyes did appear,
But a sleigh and eight tiny OWS wine bags!
I knew in a moment it must be a buyer.
More rapid than Ali his hands as they reached.
He whistled, then shouted, and called them by name:
“Now, Rasa! Now, Barolo! Now, Leonetti and Krug!
On Madeira, On Sherry, On Burgandy and En Numeros!
To the top of the counter, to the trunk of my car!
Now stash away! Stash away! Stash away all!
Now that you are excited remember the following please. This is a cash only event, which only comes around once a year. All wine is labeled at just $2 over cost. Wine only, no beer, no gift certificates, no cheese. Due to the nature of the event there will be no lunch, some special wines will be opened. The event runs from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM only, unless we run out of wine before 4:00.
Now that that is all cleared up, what does this mean for you? You will have exciting options to take home and try some exceptional wine for a fraction of the cost. Have you been wanting to try some new region or vintage but been put off for whatever reason? Well you have no excuses left! Come in this Saturday and ask us about these intriguing wines and we will be happy to talk all about these lonely soldiers who need a new home!
