Salut to the Vancouver International Wine Festival that is in full swing now in our city thru to March 2nd! This year’s theme is French wines and pairings with some of our finest restaurants sing “bon appetit!” Enjoy! Indulge! and in doing so, support one of Vancouver’s treasures—-Bard on the Beach!

It’s interesting to note that J.R. Tolkien, author of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, once said “If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world!”….

Let us eat and drink for tomorrow we diet! – Wendy Morgan

You can tell German wine from vinegar….by the label – Mark Twain

Let’s toast a real wine expert!–someone who knows a good Rose goes best with bologna
sanwichers – Elmer Pasta

He who sings scares away his woes. – Cervantes

Alas for those that never sing,
But die with all their music in them! – Oliver Wendell Holmes

Thou remember’st
Since once I sat upon a promontory,
And heard a mermaid on a dolphin’s back
Uttering such dulcet and harmonious breath,
That the rude sea grew civil at her song,
And certain stars shot madly from their spheres
To hear the sea-maid’s music. – A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Cheers to an eat drink & be merry kinda day!
