Pairing Wine With My Life's Adventure

REINVENTION: Quit my job in IT, sold my house and moved from Cal to NYC for sommelier classes. GETTING MY HANDS DIRTY: Moved to Napa and worked in a vineyard making wine. TRAVEL: Through France and Italy on a wine scavenger hunt. Sto cambiando la mia vita e desidero imparare circa vino. Je change ma vie et je veux me renseigner sur le vin. TRY TO GET SERIOUS: Living in New York for 4 years and working as a Sommelier. NEW GOALS: Do my own thing, find love, speak Spanish, live wine.

road trippin

No wine today in Utah... I started my drive this morning and made it all the way from Vegas to Grand Junction, CO. I've gone 17,000 miles in the last 3 months, why not drive 2,600 more and end up in New York? I made a slight detour off of the i-70 to Moab and drove through Arches National Park (loved the Moab pub radio station KZMU). Tired, goodnight.

Ok, jump to friday morning. Good morning. I just went down to the holiday inn express breakfast, straight out of bed, with my "got wood" t-shirt on that I got from a cooper in Napa. Pretty. I've restocked provisions (apples from the breakfast bar) and will be on my way shortly. Today's goal is Omaha, but first I get to pass through Vail and Denver. I hear there is some bar named the Brass Ass in Colo, where?

Sunday I want to make it to Wrigley Field for the Cubs vs. White Sox, and if you have an extra ticket please email me. I saw that Dave Mathews will be playing north if Chi town in Wisc. that night...

Grand Junction is right on the Colo river and there are some Vinyards nearby in Fruita and Palisade. Maybe I can find a tasting room?
