I'd drink every last bottle of my fonseca collection starting the weekend before to ensure i'll have enough alcohol in my system to start a large forest fire.

Edited to reflect the correct date ;-)

I've been toying with this too. I have a couple of "end of the world" parties I'm looking forward to, and will pop something a little nicer for the occasion. Contenders:
2001 Mondavi Reserve Magnum
'75 BdM (can't remember producer at the moment)
'86 Talbot (probably this one)
I'll eye an '02 Grange, but will most likely hold for the next "end of world" event. LOL

I will be too busy stockpiling weapons and ammo in the hope that I survive the initial apocalypse.

Is it the end of the world again?

Confused

First we have the best vintage of the century every couple of years, then the world ends every other year! Makes you want to drink.

Did the Mayans also arrange that the date is a Friday so that we can drink a lot of wine and have Saturday to get over it?

Oh wait.....

I'm wondering if they cleared it with Harold Camping first?

World ending in 2012 was all the rage for years. Now that we are here hardly a peep except for on a wine board from some dude with a port issue. LOL

December 21st is coming up quick! Should I start decanting my '05's & '09's now?! Wink

If this was REALLY going to happen, I imagine that I would liquidate some assets (who's buying?!) for a '59 Lafite & a '61 Petrus that's for sale at a LWS. I think the owner is asking ($8,000) for the Petrus.

Patrick - if you're flying and the world ends, where will you land? Will the world still be under you or does it go away?

Matter of fact, if it stays, does the world stop turning on its axis too? Does everything just stop?
