Long Island Trips....commencing now!

We're off to Patchogue today to collect a few cases of beer from Blue Point Brewery. They were generous enough to donate them to our upcoming fundraiser, Forward, on May 11th. Post Lent it's been a while since I've done a beer tasting so today might have to be the day.
Island DiVine 2009

I can't believe our event is just over a week away. After all the planning, plotting, motivating, pleading, we're almost there. Almost means we still have to sell another 50 tickets at least - yikes! Ironically, when I was involved in Junior League in SD, events like Forward that had so much appeal - great food, open bar, fabulous venue, amazing raffle prizes - sold tickets like hot cakes! Today, JLSD has their Island DiVine event, which offers all these same qualities. If you're in SD, consider going - it's always a rock star event! Hopefully Forward can pull the same success off on May 11th!

A plus of heading out to Long Island today is a visit with my best friend's cousin and her wife. They are fabulous hosts, chefs, entertainers, and sommeliers. We always have a wonderful time with them and make trips to Long Island such a blast. It might not be quite warm enough to get in some pool time, but sitting on the porch sipping a great read and snacking on Italian salume, cheeses and olives sounds just divine.
