After a wierd work-day...(slow and a bit of rivalry between my co-workers over jobs)....I went to a great wine tasting at ABC wines-where for $10 bucks you got loads of tasting (so much I couldn't deal with more) and lots of great food---(ravioli mushrooms from Carrabas restaurant and cheese and dips etc....). they also give you a $5 dollar coupon off any purchase so I got a fab chardonney (Snoqualamie Naked Chardonnay) from Wash state for $9 dollars. After a bit of the vine I went a few blocks away to Bee Ridge Park. My kayak buddy Gene participates in a bluegrass jam there every thursday evening, so it was opportune to see him after drinking all those sample wines. The group was about 15-20 old guys jamming to oldies...there was a dobro player, a great fiddle guy, some mandolines and a lot of guitarists. Funny how I like hanging with these old guys instead of going to "clubs" etc...with people my own age. The bluegrass singers were all enjoyable and Gene was great particularly when he sang "I Just don't Look Good Naked Any More". The bluegrass and wine tasting made the day a whole heck of a lot better.
