Blue Monday Blatant Low Key Relaxation
$15/person - Includes wine, cheese and hummus from Dune restaurant
I sat at a bar with a winemaker from Beaujolais.
He was discombobulated.
Los Angeles could have been Stockholm.
California was all of a sudden Sweden.
USA people were thinking more like Europeans.
It used to be that people that identify as American only thought about his kind around Thanksgiving.
Now they want to take pictures with him.
And know what he's thinking about.
Beaujolais used to sit on the bottom of the cool pyramid.
That pyramid flipped upside down.
I told him don't believe everything that you breathe.
Then I told him in the city of celebrity he now gets to be one.
Beaujolais isn't the heir to any throne.
It's not king or queen or queen or king wine.
It's wine for everyone.
And it's been hiding in plain sight.
Drink it tonight.
Who had the same experience as Beaujolais like ten years ago.
