Cubbies for corks.

In an attempt to marry my passion, wine, with my occupation in the construction industry, I began to develop some new concepts in wine storage and display with a focus on: ease of installation, space-conscious design, unique wine buying and stocking options, and a realistic, workable budget. The real breakthrough for this project came with an inexpensive custom […]

Breakfast blunders.

I was checking my e-mail on the couch when I heard this really pathetic whimper come from the kitchen. “I know that sound,” I thought. I’d been aware, moments earlier, of Rob working on a masterpiece bowl of shredded wheat: arranging the squares, breaking them in half, pouring the milk, tapping the cinnamon out of the bottle, […]

Good wine gone bad. Updated and Reposted!

3 weeks, 3 great wine stores, 3 different bottles from 2 different countries—all bad. After a string of bad bottles from some of the best wine stores I know, I thought it was time for a repost. Up until now, most of the turned bottles I’ve opened have come from auction sites and been relatively […]

Caftan: Diane von Furstenberg

Woo! This is a busy caftan. I’ve been periodically peeping this one since it came out in April or so. She really nailed it this year; I’m sort of resentful give the current stay-tus of my accounts. Whatevs. It’s sort of sheer and everywhere is showing it with a bikini underneath but sorry, kiddies, you […]

Wine Review: 2007 · Justin · Malbec · Paso Robles, CA

Rich garnet in the glass, with hints of purple visible in the soft foam of a swirl. Deep, soft nose of cherry, dried cranberries, currant, and rubber. Mouth-watering, juicy texture, somewhat less deep and earthy than I expected. A very balanced, but firm, structure of acidity and tannins—coupled with generous spicy cola and pepper—give this wine […]

A fine feline frenzy.

Far be it from me to take cues on dressing from a Jacksonville Jaguars game: flowing mullets, bikini tops under denim vests, jean shorts, more tank tops than you can burp a draft beer at, and leopard, leopard, leopard. But it is, afterall, my hometown. So as a former season-ticket holder, you can bet I […]

Fringe science.

I’ve always been a fan of fringe. And alliteration. Of which you’re about to read a lot. When fringe is added to the equation in the right amounts (and the right quality), it imparts an unrivaled bohemian chic. However, if it looks like you bought it at a craft show, then you too will look like […]
