Open that Bottle Night

Dreaming of blue skies and no snow.  Maybe some day the dream will come true.  Today is Saturday, February 27.  This is the last Saturday in February so that makes it Open that Bottle Night. 

Here's the rules once again, as formulated by John Brecher and Dorothy Gaiter formerly of The Wall Street Journal. 

Everyone has a bottle or two that they've put away for a special occasion.  Sometimes those special occasions never seem to come.  Well, tonight is that special occasion.  Enjoying the bottle is the entire reason for the event.  It doesn't have to be expensive and it doesn't even have to be very good as long as it triggers wonderful memories.  Memories could be of a person, a place, or an event or just about any thing. 

Last year I opened a bottle of cheap, fizzy  Lambrusco and we had a wonderful time reminiscing over how this crazy wine journey started.  It started with Lambrusco.
