This means last night, not tonight though...

And BTW: "Friends don't let friends drink Beaujolais" This is my motto of the week...

(hopefully, one day foreigners will realize that this whole Beaujolais thing is just a scam, not that different from the Nigerian scam)

OMG....this is WONDERFUL!!!!

Because a Beaujolas was the first wine I ever tried.

The funny thing about this, is that I never drank ANY alcohol up until two years ago. And then suddenly, I had the desire to try drinking wine. I had no idea what to buy, so I went around asking every one at work, their suggestions.

And a Beaujolais is what most of them said, considering it's a lighter red to start with.

I ended up LOVING it!

And since then, have tried several different reds.

I truly have turned into a wine enthusiast! There's something about the ritual of wine that I love. The selection, the taste, the pairing,...OMG...I LOVE IT!!!

Anyway, Leesa...thanks for this post, because I know that this is the perfect time for a Beaujolais!

Cheers, my friend!

David-- WHOOOPS!! I saw the date- yeh... the 20th, oh well.. missed it again. It's okay, I don't drink anyhow... I'm probably the only one in France besides a few kids who doesn't drink!!! Some friends went out and had a drink but said the wine wasn't that great...
Yeh.. "Friends DON'T let friends drink Bojo!!" hehehe... ; )
It's probably less of a scam then things on Craigslist, I bet!!!!

Ron- De rien!!!
Gee-- I live in the wine CAPITAL of the world-- and I don't drink... I'm JUST now starting to get a taste for wine-- trouble is... I cannot drink more than about 2 or 3 sips... That's it for me...
Have a nice weekend and thanks for visiting!!!

Anne- Happy B-day to your hubby-- mine's next Friday. Great month for b-days!!! Thanks for stopping in- hope your having a nice trip!!
