Failing The Interview Readers got worked up over Amy Nicholson's stories ("Why Is Kim Jong-un So Afraid of Seth Rogen?" and "Pulling The Interview Is the End of Free Speech in Hollywood"), especially after theater chains AMC, Regal, Cinemark, Carmike and Cineplex refused to show The Interview, prompting Sony to withdraw its...
Sauvignon Blanc Aspiring jazz saxophone students in L.A. have two popular current role models. Ben Wendel lived in L.A. and made Kneebody a thing before continuing his ascendant career in New York. Walter Smith III established himself as a next-generation version of Joshua Redman and Mark Turner before moving cross-country to L.A. The New York-Los Angeles commute is a popular one these days for jazz musicians, with former Angelenos Gerald Clayton (piano) and Dave Robaire (bass) home for the holidays. Our final New Yorker, all-star drummer Jeff Ballard, was just here with Brad Mehldau, and now he's back for more fun in the sun, down the coast from his native Santa Cruz.
Chenin Blanc Hollywood Club Crawl The fifth annual Hollywood Club Crawl is upon us in these waning days of the year, so pull yourself together and re-enter the sociological mainstream on Hollywood Boulevard tonight. Dress to impress — or depress, depending on either your couture or hauteur — and voyage with 50 to 100 other crawlers through four clubs within stumbling distance of one another over the space of one semi-magical night. Experience Couture, Boulevard3 and Playhouse — all with no waiting and no cover charge.
Late Harvest Chenin Blanc (dessert Wine)
Quick, while there's still a chill in the air, break out a big red for that big roast.
Rosé Hard-core vegetarians and vegans look away, please. We're talking red wines with the heft and character to show off the gargantuan roast beef or pork loin meat lovers hope to attack over the holidays. And by that we mean the extended holidays, i.e., the dinner parties that stretch on through January and February when we Angelenos get our small measure of chill in the air.
Sauvignon Blanc These reds don't necessarily show their best in warm weather, so if you've got a big Barolo or Bordeaux or Syrah stashed away for drinking, now's the time. The winter solstice has come and gone and days are getting longer. And that means summer is lurking around the corner. Drink up.
By Ron Saikowski / Wine WalkThe year is moving to an end very fast. Today marks Christmas which is one week from New Year’s Day and only six days from New Year’s Eve.
Cabernet Shiraz Ring in the New Year Wednesday evening with one or several out of a herd of Texas Sparkling Wines. Sparkling wines are made all over the world, with the Champagne region of France having the largest concentration of wineries making Sparkling Wines and is the only area where their sparkling wines can be legally called “CHAMPAGNE.” Trade laws prohibit calling sparkling wines made in Texas “Champagne.” We call those wines with a bubbly effervescence in Texas, California, and Australia SPARKLING WINES. Sparkling wines in Spain are called Cava while Italy labels their sparkling wines as either Prosecco or Asti Spumante. Two Wineries on the Texas Bluebonnet Wine Trail make sparkling wines.
Rosé Windy Winery near the Brenham Airport makes two sparkling wines made from the Blanc du Bois grapes grown in their estate vineyards. This Mom-Pop Winery handcrafts their sparkling wines which are named after them, being Linda’s Sparkling and Auggie’s Sparkling. Both wines are available at the Windy Winery for around $29 per bottle. Traveling to the winery would be a fun Saturday excursion with either Linda or August Meitzen being happy to autograph your bottle of sparkling wine.
