Open that bottle night
Today is annual "Open That Bottle Night". The night where you open that nice bottle of wine that has been sitting on your wine rack. The bottle that is nice enough that it sat there aging, waiting for the right occasion to be opened. If no night or occasion seemed to measure up in the last year, tonight is the night to enjoy the wine, and make a an otherwise random Saturday special.
I wrote something about it a couple of years ago. We celebrated on an even more random day in April of 2010, but it was in the same spirit. And the wine and friends made it a special evening.
I don't have a nice bottle sitting on my wine shelf these days, but maybe I'll go out and splurge on something good. You know, something over the $10 mark.
