It's Party Time!!!

That's right ladies and gents, I'm going to beat you over the head with this thing because it's just that awesome.

This Saturday, October 20th, will be Personal Wine Cellar's One Year Anniversary Bash!

And there's a lot going on to be excited about.

Here's an artist's rendition of what
Shelly might look like...
aaand...that's me.
There will be wine and spirit tastings from noon until pretty much the end of time (or...well into the evening. I'm not sure what time exactly, but there are A LOT of tastings booked), including Chambord Vodka French Martinis with the incomparable Shelly (if you've been in the store, you've probably seen her doing her thang) and  Johnson Estate wines with Yours Truly! Me...in case you didn't know. I'm not sure what I'll open yet, but to get an idea of what will be on the table check out this post from my pilgrimage trip to the winery this past August.

As if wall-to-wall free wine and spirit tastings weren't enough, we're also doing totally free cooking demonstrations (with samples of course) throughout the day with some of our awesome chef friends.

Here's Brad finishing up
the Shrimp and Scallop
Orecchiette with Tomato
Butter Sauce...
We're kicking it off at noon with executive chef Brad Schmidt from The Gourmet Cafe in Glens Falls, NY. Brad's become a bit of a regular with our Cooking with Spirit classes, which are held the second Sunday of each month at PWC. This past week he made a wonderful scallop and shrimp dish with a white wine sauce. It was soooo good!

At 2:00 pm we have PWC's chef in residence Hillary Seaburg, who makes all of the delicious treats we serve up for Munchie Mondays. So if you've come in on a Monday or Tuesday and tried a spirit-themed dessert, that was made by Hillary. And seriously, that screwdriver cake was A.MAZ. ING.

And then rounding out the lineup at 4:00 pm is longtime friend and fantastic chef John Randazzo from Via Fresca in Guilderland, NY. John makes some seriously yummy gourmet Italian food. This guy catered my rehearsal dinner in 2008 and I am STILL dreaming about that penne ala vodka. His desserts are pretty darn delish too.

So, we've got free wine and spirit tastings, and free cooking demos and samples all day. As if that wasn't enough, you get a 10% discount of any wine you purchase (ANY WINE. Any bottle, any size, any price.). We'll also be giving away some door prizes throughout the day. If you're still reading this and saying to yourself, "eh..." there may be something seriously wrong with you*.

So to summarize:
Free Wine Tasting
Free Liquor Tasting
Free Cooking demos
Free Food tasting
Door Prizes
10% discount all day on ANY and EVERY wine purchase.

*consult your physician for details.
