At around 5PM I headed over to the grand opening of the Grape Merhant's new wine store. On my drive over it was raiing, but a spectacular rainbow formed. The colors were so vibrant and I could see the entire loop. It was terrific!
As I arrived at the Grape Merchant they were just cutting the ribbon. I walked in with the VIPs and even the mayor. Michelle and Kathy soon joined me and later so did fellow teachers Enrica, Tracey, and her roomate James. We were lucky enough to grab some sofas and relax there with wine. By 6PM there were over a dozen different bottles opened and awaiting my taste test! Soon Gloria joined us and then Diana too. We stayed and tried a vartiety of wines until a little after 7PM.
At 7:15PM we went for dinner at Massimos. We had a nice long table with Diana and myself as well as Barry, Marcie, Bram, Gloria, Michelle, Dee and Michael, Gary and Lourdes, and Ken and Malaina. Of course a few more bottles of wine were needed. Its funny because I always order the same thing here (and I did again!), but everyone else tried so many different items from the menu that I finally got a chance to try a few more dishes. Diana even had the table decorated beforehand with balloons and table decorations and she arranged for a carvel ice cream cake for dessert. All in all it was a terrific night and I was glad to share it with good friends.
