BEAUTIFUL DRIVE this morning, I was inspired once again, I loved it, had to
dig my car out in our cul-de-sac and start the engine and let it warm as I
scraped off the thick blanket of white snow, some of which got into the car
as I had not closed the driver's seat door closed and there was a crack for
it to slip through and onto my Volvo driver's seat that is warmed from
below to keep my derriere nice a toasty and warm! It is nice, my derriere
always warms before the rest of me when I drive these days. What a story to
share here, hope you find it amusing as I do, hope it melts the ice, ...
the snow in this case.

THE DRIVE always takes me across the Teddy Roosevelt Bridge from Virginia
to Washington D.C., past the rowers on either side below on the Potomac,
past the gaggle of Canadian geese I sometimes see there on the Virginia
side of the bank of the Potomac river, past the Washington Monument, the
Lincoln Memorial, the Vietnam Memorial, the statue of Einstein, too, and
past the Kennedy Center as I veer to the left and off onto a ramp to get
onto Rock Creek Parkway for more beautiful imagery and inspiration before I
arrive at the entrance to the National Zoo and the two regal lions that
greet my eyes and all those passing by and along, just before I get to work
here in Cleveland Park a ' happenin' neighborhood ' of Washington D.C. I
love it, really I do.

SO WHEN I ARRIVE @ Cleveland Park Wine And Spirits I am all charged up,
batteries revved and eyes wide and nostrils-to-like-to-be-flaired and with
a smile and great intentions to do all that I can for you, the
neighborhood, the store, our business community here,.... always a good
feeling, always a great way to start my week.

WELCOME TODAY to Cleveland Park and to our spirits' store of many fine
libations, treasures, pleasures and excitements, too. We have some of it
all, and if we do not we call and check it out immediately.

A YOUNGER MAN just asked me if we had the BARR HILL vodka from Vermont? I
said I did not think so, and we approached Santos and Malkit and asked
them. Malkit got on his phone and called our local rep. I will go ask him
now what he discovered and include that here now. " That's made with honey.
Yeah, I ordered it. " Malkit just answered me. The gin that we sell is also
made with honey as a component, $42.99 a 750ml bottle.

I SET MY TASTING TABLE UP earlier and put bottles of liquor and of beer to
take pictures of and tweet. Yes, I tweet, I am all a tweeter, all a
twitter, all a flitter, everything nice, just not all a bitter, not at all!
You can FOLLOW us on Twitter at : cpwinespirits and also at : wineenabler.
Please do, let's all stay caught up with one another. I tweeted about
Hayman's Old Tom gin, about Tozai plum wine, about Koval single barrel
bourbon, about J.J. Jaconbsen Sommer Gaarden Danish After Dinner liqueur,
about two beers : HERRMANNSDORFER and about Beer Army Combat Brewery... and
still need to tweet about : GLENNINCHIE The Edinburgh malt .... so little

I ALSO TWEETED about the National Zoo and posted a picture I took this
morning just before getting here to work. I took a picture of one of the
stately lions covered in snow that greets the people coming and going at
that entrance here on Connecticut Avenue.

I JUST TWEETED ABOUT the ' new ' Hawaiian rums called : Sammy's Beach Bar
Rum, including one with Macademia nuts, $19.99 a 750ml bottle, come check
them out. This is exciting, really good. Malkit really liked them
yesterday. He is really excited about them. You have to ask him what he
thought when you see him next, cheers.

snow outside.
BEAUTIFUL DRIVE this morning, window down, wind-swept hair, thoughts,
dreams, emotions, energy-flows, you name it?!? It was so nice to gather my
thoughts as I drove to work and felt the cold air and to admire the baby
blue sky that seemed like someone had stirred all the white clouds evenly
through it's surface. On Rock Creek parkway I saw two helicopters overhead
and it made me wonder what dignitary was driving along by me or past me : U
saw nothing to warrant two helicopters? But what do I know? I liked it
anyway, it was fun to see as you never know what will cross your path here
in our dynamic city?!?

3) ' Schweinsbrau Gold ' from HERRMANSDORFER, a Bavarian lager, brewed and

This delicate flavor of our roasted Soba brings a nutty finish to this
light red refreshing ale. A perfect accompaniment to lighter cuisine. With

LIQUEUR / LIQUOR From Malkit and Jagir :

Jacobsen , from Denmark, On Special for $8.99, a GREAT DEAL! made with

Edinburgh Malt." Its aromatic smoothness brings to mind cut flowers and
creamy lemon cheesecake. Crisp and focused, with a herbal, drying finish,
this is an ideal aperitif and partner to smoked fish, sushi or scallops. "
I like that, I like that it can accompany sushi and smoked fish a lot! Wow,
a discovery, never thought of this. Must try it myself and see if I agree.
I am inclined , however, to agree as they have undoubtedly put this to the
test thousands upon thousands of time. Cheers.

WINE from Chris and Tony :

WINES For Watching The Super Bowl :

great with finger foods, $10.99, from Baja California, Mexico.

2) ' Isidora ' Sauvignon Gris from Chile's Maipo Valley, from
COUSINO-MACUL, 2013, $16.99 : fuller, richer, more body, great when more
heavy finger-foods come for the Super Bowl.

with may appetizers during the Super Bowl.

$17.49 , is a balanced, tasty wine that is easier-sipping and will taste
really good while watching the Super Bowl. Cannonau is another word for

wines made with this grape you should love this one : bright, tasty, sharp
and lively and a treat.
