Three weeks to this hour, I will be limbering up — loosening my elbows and wrists, doing taichi to flex my inner organs, stretching my lower back in preparation of standing a half-dozen hours — to get ready for the Beijing Hilton Food & Wine Experience the next day. This is my favorite public tasting of the year, not only because it includes the chance to sample from among more than 1000 wines, but also because I always meet people I haven’t seen for ages as well as a few I know only by corresponding online. This year’s event is November 12, from 1 PM to 7 PM, and costs rmb260. See the poster below for more details.
Finally, everyone who won prizes in the Theme Team Contest, which had the goal of coming up with a name for this year’s event, should have received an email from me by now. And great to see the Hilton Beiing used the winning entry, Vinopolitan. If you won a prize and did not get an email, let me know at beijingboyce (at) yahoo.com. If you do not know if you won, see Pretty Much Everyone’s a Winner, Baby. I apologize for being slow in getting the tickets out. I’m blaming this guy.
