Since there seems to be enough interest in 2 offlines for Toronto in July, here goes:

Date: July 15th
Time: 7:00 p.m.
Place: University & Dundas area (I'll confirm venue later)
Theme: Rhones -- Reds, whites or roses -- or Rhone inspired wines

If you can attend, please confirm.

What kind of food do they serve? Italian? French? Other?

Dok et al (but not just Oakville Al)

The venue is called Tuscany Cafe, and it's located at 45 Baldwin Street (between Beverly and McCaul). Don't let the name fool you, the cuisine is not traditional Italian.

Presently in Rome, Italy. Hot and humid, but lots of fun.

Are you sure you are having fun? You sounded like you just can't wait till you come back. Wink
Cant make this one as I will be in Ottawa July 15-17 attending a horse show (Capital Classic).

Carriedca, If you dont come to Toronto on the 15'th, perhaps we can hook up on the Saturday?
I believe the show is held in Nepean at some big equestrian complex.... close to you?
Some details for the 15th
- reservations are for 7:00
- stemware/decanters are needed. (If you can't bring your own, I can bring some extra).
- we have room for 10 people.

I haven't decided yet what to bring, but I'll post when I get back from out of town early next week.

Who's still in?
Mrs. Baird will attend depending if Mrs. Carried or other members of the opposite sex attend.

I will bring a big red (98 Vieux Telegraph or similar) or alternatively a 750 of 1998 Bastor Lamontagne Sauternes if there are no other dessert wines being brought. I know Sauternes isn't in the Rhone. Razz
I have an extremely rare 375ml of Guigal's Luminescence I could bring. Razz

It is a semisweet condrieu so I am concerned about food matching. But if there are 10 people at the offline, I might be better off bringing something else as we would only get a small taste each.
It appears that I'm on call on the 15th of July and unfortunately am unable to attend this offline. I must send my regrets but wish you all a fabulous offline.
(When I responded, I did not have the final and confirmed call schedule dates. Oops.)

Give me a call when you have a minute. If you are still coming to Toronto at all next weekend, we would love to have you and the Mrs. over on Saturday night for dinner and a Mouton Cadet vertical. Big Grin

I left you a message at home also....


Give Mrs Slan my best on her 29th! Wink


I woke up this morning feeling like hell. I caught something from one of my kids and will fill my bloodstream with antibiotics tonight. I should be ok for tomorrow, but I will advise in the morning if I can't make it.
Hopefully you get better, Baird. The numbers seem to be dwindling by the day!

Regardless, it's a go from my perspective.

Here's the wine list so far:

2001 Chateau de Beaucastel Coudoulet de Beaucastel
2001 Cuvee du Vatican Chateauneuf-du-Pape
2001 Paul Jaboulet Mule Blanche

Duojet said he was going to bring a red as well, and Baird said he was going to bring something along the lines of a 1998 Vieux Telegraphe CdP.

If you think we need more wine, I could always look to pick something else up. Also, we could head to the tasting room at my cellar for a bottle after the fact as well.
