Something over 5000 bottles crossed my table(s) during 2017. It was an amazing march of every kind of wine and spirits imaginable. Mostly wine, but a fair amount of gin, rum, vodka, bourbon, scotch, and a few others. Tiny bottles from 187.5 ml…about 1 glass of 6 ounces….to 6 liter bottles; a 6 liter holds the equivalent of 8 regular bottles.
Messages covered ever occasion from birth to death. In between those there were birthdays, Engagements, weddings, anniversaries, new homes, vacations, divorces, retirements, and and few ‘here’s-to-me-I-deserve-this’ kinds of messages to numb the pain or get the satisfaction of a self-generated pat on the back…a ‘pat’ one could pour in a glass and drown their troubles or celebrate something personal.
The most in any one event was 276 in a Lubbock, TX, MARKET STREET. 19th and Quaker if you know the neighborhood.
