Best Wine for Thanksgiving? Don’t sweat it!

Posted on: November 18, 2018

Turkey with wine

I love wine, and I’m hoping that if you’re reading this, you do, too.

For many years, I’ve asked read articles, searched the web and asked the experts for advice, seeking to answer the question, ‘hat’s the best wine for Thanksgiving?’

I’ve encountered two problems with this. First, the typical Thanksgiving meal consists of a wide variety of divergent tastes. Turkey, ham, roast beef, sweet potatoes and cranberries, together can pose a pairing challenge.

Along with ethnic or regional favorites, lumpia, raviolis, tomales, my wife’s outstanding Cajun cornbread stuffing, etc., and it’s enough to drive a wine snob mad.

Heard Around Folsom – Full Lake, Red’s Blues, Wine and Dine,

Posted on: May 18, 2018

Folsom Lake level May 18 2018

Have you seen or heard? Folsom Lake is 96% full, which is 120% of the average for this time of year.  The lake level usually peaks about June 1, and the dam operators draw down from there, usually bottoming around December 1. I don’t know if this means a nice long boating season, as we still need steady water flowing down from the Sierras. We’ll see about that, but for now, just beautiful… It’s time once again for the Folsom Rotary Club’s annual Wine and Dine. Happening Sunday, you’ll get the chance to try wine and beers from the around the region, as well as tasty treats from local restaurants, proceeds go toward a great cause, and it’s only forty bucks!  Tickets here … Red’s Blues plays Sunday at 3pm at Powerhouse Pub. What? You didn’t know they had live blues at powerhouse every Sunday? It’s true! Bring your axe and stick around for the blues jam session at 7pm…. As for me, I’ve got my grandson in town. I think we’ll head out to the Folsom Zoo Sanctuary to see the local critters, maybe a train ride, and a visit to Snook’s … Go out and make it a great one!
