festivals: cooler than sxsw

i looooooooooooooove icewine. a canadian friend tipped me off to the annual icewine festival. sounds like HEAVEN. i don't think we'll be able to go this year, but there's always next year.

so what is my relationship with icewine? our relationship started in an airplane.

airplane? icewine?

yes, you see it was a first class flight direct to paris.

me, classy?

well not normally, but we won tickets, you see.

we got free everything - champagne, etc. then, i asked for some icewine. free, too. you see, you just pick stuff off the menu in first class and they bring it to you. it's not like last class (coach) where you are pressed up against your neighbor and you must pay to use the toilet.

anyway, i digress....

the wonderful flight attendant (not like those junor flight attendants who are so harried in last class) brought my icewine and i was in love. i was a bit tipsy by the end of the flight. noting my obvious affection for the wine, the flight attendant gave me a bottle of icewine.

i would later learn this was a bottle of THE icewine. the gold-medal winning, reserve bottle. it was worth probably $75 bucks. gotta love the old delta air lines.
