Sustainable Growth

Friday, July 19th, 2002 · No Comments

Last night Jen and I attended a sustainable-growth wine tasting and lecure at the Commonwealth Club of California (in San Francisco). We sampled quite a few wines (labeled A through M, exclusive of D, which seemed to have grown legs (this is a thinly disguised wine pun), and H or I — I can’t remember which) in a blind tasting and scored each wine on a scale of -3 to +3. As we progressed toward the end of the list of wines, the scores we gave the wines got better, as one might expect. We grew restless before the panel lecture came to a close, so we headed out for a spontaneous date at a great osteria-like establishment on 3rd Street: Piazzia. It took us back to Italy, with Italian-speaking waiters, tables in close proximity, and, of course, delicious food. Even the decor reminded us of an osteria in Venice where we ate back in April.
