All of us poor, suffering Sommelier Guild members will have to choke down yet another winey dinner this evening. Except for Denny, the Grouchy One hizzownself, who is torturing himself by scuba diving in Bonaire this week. Poor guy.

But I’ll be there with Houston Steve...and perhaps I’ll be able to find out from Mike W- what life was like “behind the scenes” at the recent PGA Tour Championship.

Here’s the menu:
