2004 Château Lascombes

Pack me up and take me somewhere warm! In the meantime, keeping warm with this Lascombes. Smells just like a Bordeaux - cassis, blackberries, raspberries, fresh leather, violets, spicebox, mushrooms and earth. Starts with red fruit and cassis on the palate, leather and mushroom mid-palate, and finishes with tart red fruit.

The Society for the Advancement of Social Studies  is bringing a night of seriously unserious art history to the Brooklyn Museum on Thursday, January 29th. Here’s a sneak peak courtesy of SASS founders Larissa Hayden & Anna Rasche:

Humans have been producing and consuming intoxicating beverages since time immemorial, so it’s no surprise that alcohol has left quite an impression on the art historical record. From intricately crafted drinking vessels, to exquisitely designed liquor labels to ancient depictions of dudes who’ve had a few too many, find out what can be learned about our history and ourselves through the art that surrounds alcohol.

Aside from filling your cups from our cash bar, and your minds with little known facts about drinking throughout art history, we’ll have opportunities to doodle for a chance to grab some exclusive prizes!   

A fun fact for pregaming: To date, the earliest scientifically confirmed traces of alcoholic beverages were found in a neolithic Chinese settlement dating from 7,000 BC. The Brooklyn Museum’s collection includes an Egyptian wine label dating back to 1390-1352 B.C.E.

This Thursday, January 29th from 5-8PM, I am hosting a wine tasting at one of my favorite wine shops in LA, DomaineLA. We’ll be serving three of my favorite natural/organic wines from Italy, Spain and France. And for $12, it’s a hell of a deal. Like for real, you cannot get three glasses of wine this good for $12. No tickets or reservations necessary, just come on down and hang out. I’m also bringing a stack of vinyl to play so it’s going to be a lot of fun I promise.

SO LET’S GET DRUNK OK LOVE YOU
