Recently In My Face: The Vetted Well

The Vetted Well burger at The Vetted Well.  Unique for having baked beans on it.  It was far more novelty than it was good.

Manbuns, Nothing but Manbuns

While in Germany recently, I saw what can only be described as a pandemic of manbuns.  Here are just a few of the plethora Europe has to offer.

Prowein 2016

I came to Düsseldorf to taste some wine, and that I did.  I didn’t realize I would be tasting wine from 6 of the 7 continents*.  That I would taste wine from Bulgaria (good), Moldova (ok), Kosovo (terrible, but please don’t tell them, I hear they have a temper).

We started out strong (it really could only go downhill from here) with some Port.  Yes that 50 year old port on the left did make into my face.

I thought it was sweet someone named a wine after my old schnauzer.

I learned here that there is such a thing as too much Amarone

Funny people at the convention.

I guess I liked this.  But then I generally do like this type of wine.

This guy is telling us  about the 40 year old Champagne we’re about to taste.

That’s mine in the foreground.  Too bad you can’t smell or taste it.

Düsseldorf 2016

Dorf16

I took a quick trip to Düsseldorf last month* to attend a gigantic wine convention.  There will be pictures of that to come.  Unfortunate, jet lag and overall busyness caused me to have only a couple of hours to take pictures.  And even from that only a few came out good enough to present.

 

* Yeah, I’m getting worse and worse at getting these things out in a timely manner.
