Happy Valentine's Day. Happy 50 Anniversary Of The Beatles Singing In Wash D.C. " I Want To Hold You Hand ", Happy Sochi Winter Olympics, Happy State White House Dinner W/ Thibaut-Janisson VA. Sparkling Wine. Anthony Quinn's Store CP Wine & Spirits; Email 2/11/14

Cleveland Park Wine Cleveland Park Beer, Liquor & Wine
Featuring a wide, international selection of fine wines, micro-brews and spirits

TODAY, February 11th, 2011 the Beatles performed for their very first time ever
in Washington D.C. at the DC Coliseum I believe? It was their first concert
ever here in the United States and happened after singing on the Ed Sullivan
show. The weather just like it always has the ability to do decided to snow and
there was a heavy snow this day back in 1963, 50 years ago! They had rented two
train cars and invited the press to come. It's all in today's Washington Post
newspaper Style section. Good reading for me this morning, I enjoyed it

THE question I have is : did or do any of the Beatles like wine? I cannot
remember or do not know? Tell me what you all know on this subject? But let's
open it up to include beer and liquor, too. Share, respond here on this email
and Michel or I will see it and answer. Better yet write us at :
anthony.quinn@clevelandparkwines.com and michel.dumas@clevelandparkwines.com, or
go to our Facebook page and leave a comment there at : Cleveland Park Wines &
Spirits. It will be FAB4ulous to hear from you.

BECAUSE THIS CONCERT HAPPENED here today it is mentioned first. And they did
sing their first #1 hit : " I Want To Hold You Hand ". and can there be anything
more perfect to start with than that as we get close to Valentine's Day this
Thursday, February 14th?!? Not much that I can think of.

NOTE : We want to congratulate Claude Thibaut of his owner THIBAUT-JANISSON
Virginia Chardonnay brut that we sell here in half-bottles as well as in the
regular 750ml size as the White House will be serving it tonight I believe at a
state dinner for the President of France. Very special indeed, and made around
Charlottesville, Virginia, too by our good friend Claude Thibaut that we have
supported here since he first started. Cheers, sante et felicitation a toi
Claude et a Manu et Pamela aussi!  Get a bottle here and enjoy it tonight and
pretend that you are there at the dinner!

everything else! Have already mentioned and offered many selections for you all
to consider like the Banyuls sweet red southwest of France red wines that we
sell in 375ml / half bottles and the regular size of 750ml, too. There's a real
convenience with half bottles so that you may enjoy more variety at this very
happy time. I will mention more half bottles here.

Enjoying the Sochi Winter Olympics? That's been on our minds, too.The athletes
are doing such an amazing job and I said to my wife last night : " Too bad that
they can record one-one-hundredth of a second and announce that person as the
gold medalist when someone else makes it to the finish within that same second.

THEY ARE ALL GOLD MEDALISTS ( in my opinion )  if they make it within that one
second. Too bad they do not all receive a gold medal. " I know that I will get a
whole lot of grief for this but I do believe it. After all some days are better
than others for everyone, and to be defined by that fact that you had a bad
moment or day is tough as it lives with you for the rest of your life. Just my
