This is Erte. Look at that greyhound. You know, you really can be too thin!
Anyway, please come to the shop on Wednesday from 5 to 7 pm for French. Your Shop Dog, Cate
This is Erte.
Really rainy here but we are excited to tell you that people still came in the shop! In fact, a nice couple just came in and specifically requested to meet us! They even knew our names. How cool is that? From where we sit, I can see a hole on the shelf where two six packs of Fat Dog have sold. I forgot to tell you that a really nice lady came in the shop and was so excited to see Fat Dog Oatmeal Stout here. She says she is from Adamstown, the home of Stoudts Fat Dog and there is only one other shop around Asheville that has the Fat Dog. She was pretty happy. Us too. Signed Bandit, Shop Dog.
PS This is Fat Dog!
Metro Wines and Curator Gary Byrd launch the first in a series of Art and Wine presentations blending art history with the history of wine. The first talk will focus on Caravaggio's painting, "Bacchus," circa 1595, Rome. We have all seen this painting with a young Bacchus offering a glass of wine to the viewer. Gary will discuss the artist, the subject and Metro Wines will add and offer what is probably in the glass! Join us Wednesday, May 29th from 6 to 8pm at Metro Wines.
Long night of shop doggin' last night. Over 250 visitors tasted 6 wines at Metro Wines Grand Opening last night! We worked the crowd but good. We made several valiant efforts to reach the 3 Graces Dairy Cheese on the party table but failed. But hope springs eternal! today is clean up and who knows what will happen. Keep you posted. Saw a lot of rose and cava go out the door. Stand by for party pix but for now:
