Yum Yum, big Saturday!

When it is good friends, business associates and wine, good food, what a great evening. Had one of those and the ones were all incredible.

Shafer Hillside Select, 1998 Cab, not sure it could have got any better. But what a great bottle of wine, shared with wine novices and cork dorks together!

The opener was Sonoma-Cutrer Les Pierres 2005, a great balanced white wine goes with anything and just great in everything. I always thought their complexity in whites was worth it. But last night, damm fine!

OK, a tad bit later will send some great Thanksgiving wines for you to have on the table to drink!
The conversation was all about the ad business and how challenging it is right now--but the place we all had dinner was packed, so hmmmm!

Took my MBA class  (USF) for a bit of retail therapy and an academic experience in Union Square San Francisco--the 25 students had their eyes open, always a great Saturday, what a hands on way of truly seeing marketing by walking around.

Lots of sales, truly deep discounts, no bags bad service and hell it isn't even Black Friday!
