A very quick blurb to let you know that the latest edition of Chester County Cuisine & Nightlife has hit the stands. This month’s issue (August 2009) includes a piece that I wrote in late 2008 on Penns Woods winemaker Gino Razzi.
CCC, masterminded by WCDish.com co-founder and irrepressible Philly-area foodie Mary Bingham, continues to improve with every issue and seems like it’s really starting to hit its stride. And best of all, it’s FREE.
So if you happen to find yourself in visiting, living in, or mysteriously waking up somewhere in Chester County, PA, be sure to grab yourself a copy or two, or hit the PDF after the jump for a tree-friendly version!
In the words of the wise and eloquent bard Homer Simpson, “DOH!”
Seems that 1WineDude.com is having some serious trouble this week. It’s possible that many of you have been getting very slow response times from the blog, having it time-out, or are receiving errors.
It’s not you, it’s most definitely us.
I do know about it, and so does my hosting provider, who is working on the issue now. We’re hoping to have things running normally again very soon.
Sorry for the inconvenience. I’ll be keeping you updated on status via twitter as events warrant.
Don’t let a little thing like this come between us, okay? I’ll make it up to you. I promise.

Give an attention whore a chance to make an idiot out of himself… and the results speak for themselves.
At least, that’s what I learned about myself this past week at the 2nd annual American Wine Bloggers Conference.
You’re probably expecting some sort of WBC recap, but I’m saving that (more or less) for 1WineDude TV episodes. If you really want a recap of (what was a very successful) WBC, there are tons of good ones popping up on the Global Interwebs this week. I recommend this one from W.R Tish, who I happen to think is totally awesome (and I told him this personally enough times at WBC that he might be considering a restraining order against me for WBC 2010…). If anyone is wondering why I’ve been posting vids and not writing 2500-word blog posts this week, the technical answer is that I’m on vacation. Sort of.
Anyway, I did have a point to all of this rambling, but I forgot it so instead I’ll give you an update on some other very cool wine media happenings, all of which highlight just how much of an attention whore I am.
Oh, yeah, they’ll also give you some great info. on wine and wine bloggers…

The most recent Twitter Taste Live! event, featuring wines from St. Supery and drawing over 700 twitter updates from event participants, was featured this week on Yahoo!.TECH!
Fellow wine bloggers Natalie MacLean, SwirlGirls, and yours truly were also mentioned!
What I liked most about the article was this tidbit, which shows that the author was indeed tuned in to the balladromic course of the TTL happenings:
“Not surprisingly by the end of the three-hour tasting, the tweets became a bit less coherent.”
Anyway – glad to see TTL getting the coverage. Check out the article after the jump:
