So I'm at Trader Joe's, I locate the wine guy, Robert, and I tell him I'm looking for a decent bottle of champagne.

"What's the occasion?" my aging hippie helper asks.

"November 5th," I answer.

He looks at me, not getting it.

"You know, post election. I'm planning on celebrating."

"Here's a good one," he says. "Either way, you're gonna want to get drunk."

That's funny! Joking aside I would recommend this Sekt or the Zonin Prosecco. Let's hope we are opening them with a smile on our face...

I'll just be glad when it's done. Don't know a thing about wines, so no recommendations from me. :)

Lori said...

Amen! LOL

Not a bad idea, either. :)

Funny. Is it too late to recommend Schramsberg blanc de blanc. So good.

Ya gotta love an aging hippie's sage outlook.

I'm expecting to be celebrating.

Put out into the world what you wish for. In no uncertain terms.

Let's go for it.

The Zonin Prosecco is reasonable and tasty.
