June 20th 6pm NY?

Post by SushiNorth » 18:49 Thu 22 May 2008

Would anyone be interesting in a small NYC gathering on June 20th in NYC (thus a RL offline to celebrate the anniversary, as opposed to the virtual one)? Small as in, not a tasting, just a nice dinner with a couple bottles?

UPDATE:
La Sirene at 6PM, attendees and bottles listed below

Shall we eat some place near the village?

Around astor place?

haven't been down there in a while and the missus would probably attend as well.

Yes, let's do that. I'm putting it on my calendar now :) We can even take an excursion to Warehouse if anyone wants to pick up some inexpensive VP to honor the occasion.

Let's sort out bottles when we get a little closer (and know where we each stand in the post rankings!)

I'm beginning to get a tad jealous of your casual gatherings. Keep it up. :)

16 tastings in London compared to 9 tastings in the States.

I don't see how you could be jealous =)

Yes, I would still like to do the sake tasting, unfortunately my schedule wound up a bit booked so I don't yet have a good time to hold it. I am starting to think mid july may work well though.

Yup, still interested. I had forgotten we didn't pick a place. I'll go look up BYO places in the village right now :)

7$/bottle BYOB, small cozy place but the food is good, the service is a little sub par though. dessert here is excellent.

Looks good, but I might be able to do you one better...
http://www.yelp.com/biz/la-sirene-new-y ... query:byob

Never been there but hell, they kicked in free port for some yelp reviewers. Must be our kind of place. Corkage is free, BYO is legal, and pre-fixe is $25. It is cash only, and a tiny place. If we like the look of it, I'll make us reservations. The owner also sounds happily insane, so we should get him over to share a glass or two :)

that place does sound amazing ... (2 people for me!)

Shall we consider a line up of what to bring?

I would imagine, we have most of dessert wines taken care of.

Hmm, probably not. I bet there is some nearby, but unless g-man or differentdave is equipped with an internet phone we should probably just text updates around.

Anyone else in NYC thinking of joining us? I'd like to get a final count by tomorrow, as this place is getting a lot of good reviews and will be packed.

I believe I am slated for Taylor's LBV. I have a 94 and an 01 and can bring either.

I think I may also bring a 1/2 of Taylor Qd Vargellas 88.

Oh yeah, and Sohowines is around the corner... O_O

okay I'll find a graham's tawny

and will probably swing by sohowines for something.

was thinking of digging into the cellar, but I dont think the dry reds would hold with a whole day at work and 100 degree weather outside.

I'm planning on a cooler pack to keep the temp down most of the day. I figured the LBV would be pop-and-pour, but I'll decant the 88 for a few hours in the morning.
