UPDATE :  Saturday, February 1st, 2014 ... second ' in-store ' wine-tasting : ...

Liz and Ryan brought Matt and Carol-Ann from North Carolina to the store after 8 PM and said : " You're still tasting wine, right?!? ", and I, with my coat on and ready to head out the door said : " No. That's over. " Ryan persisted with : " We brought our good friends visiting us to meet you. " Turns out that Ryan and Matt and Carol-Ann go way back, growing up together and that this was their first visit to Washington D.C. to visit Ryan and Liz. I pulled out the wine that was left from Amy Troutmiller's selections : a delicious dry Veneto Riesling Italico from Italy, $13.99 and we started there and proceeded to the Bardolino dry red from Veneto, Italy and the Spanish red Bobal and with these two reds I said : " Looks like you guys are screwed because it's always ' Ladies first ' and there's just enough for Liz and Carol-Ann. " They sighed, and Carol-Ann said : " Suck it up! " , and I responded : " Wow, I like Carol-Ann! " and smiled. I did have some of the ' aged ' LEBLON Cacacha from Brazil to pour them all and spoke about Fatima's tasting and Brazil's Carnaval last night and the tasting. Ryan said : " I told you so! We should have come last night! " I tasted them also on the ALEXANDRE Pedro Ximenez sherry, $32.99, they loved it and bought a bottle for Carol-Ann's father I think? Then I said : " Wait Liz, I have something special for you and I went to get the green LEBLON shiny beads' necklace for her and Carol-Ann amd both Ryan and Matt put them over the necks of Liz and Carol-Ann. Matt took this ' selfie ' of us all. We had a blast. Chatted, bonded, enjoyed. Anthony ( TONY ) Quinn 3/1/2014
