I will show up if the grand tasting is longer. That is what makes a summer gathering.

I agree with Paul (Dickinsonbeer) as well; I need a place to bring that big ass 9L Pannepot Grand Reserva bottle to share with everyone once and for all!! :-)))

I agree with Dickinsonbeer, even if only because I’ll need something to do to kill time before the 8AM train the next morning.
        Drake, 1/16/2011
I would suggest to find a place for the grand tasting to allow us to go much later than 10pm if possible. 4 hours seems very short for a grand tasting. Of the few RBSG’s I have been to, it seems the grand tasting has gone from about 5-6 to at least 2am, sometimes much later.
