Hey Joahua,

People, this is just about as good as it gets. It is evident that we need a white. I do not have anything high end but I have a Grand Cru Chablis. I will bring 16 Fevre Les Preuses. It is young. This is not the time to hold back!

I hope that we can work this out because we are five including Jay. Or maybe Chris depending on the date. I believe these things need a minimum of six. Either date works for me as long as the Yankees aren't playing.
