I could do tonight ;) but the rest of the month is a kind of busy. 13th and 27th are possible for me. Maybe just pick one, and whoever can make it is in. Since it would probably be a smaller group, Sole?

The next two weeks are good for me. After that is harvest season, where I can't schedule things more than a day or two out. (Can always jump in last moment, if there's an opening, but no biggie.)

So let’s try for one on the 13th, that is little less than a week away.

Whoever else is interested, please chime in.

I’m good with where ever, Sole, Paul Martins, Donato...

George is having his event on the 12th; maybe choose another date as back to backs might be tough.

Sapore in Burlingame has also offered us free corkage and I am also talking to Delizie in San Carlos.

I’m going to George’s bash on the 12th. The 13th isn’t great for me, but that’s ok. If that’s the best date, go for it.

So being we are a small group and Andrew (anti-Sole guy) won’t be there, I’ll give Sole a call.
But if anyone wants different, please chime in.

Ok, since no one chimes in, I went ahead and got a res at Sole for 8.
So we have a couple extra spots.
I’m assuming Andrew you’re not coming?

It'll be a small group, so we'll have the chance to really ponder some wines. I'm thinking of bringing a '96 Montrose. Any thoughts as to whether that's too young still?

If you have any interest in trying a younger version of the 2002 I brought to our last dinner, K&L has this one:

Sorry I'm going to have to cancel: I just realized I'll be drinking every night thru Sun and don't think my liver can handle a 5th night in a row
