St. Supery And Twitter Taste Live: Rockin’ Like Dokken!

Vinted on July 9, 2009 binned in twitter taste live, wine 2.0

Time for another Twitter Taste Live! event.

I know what you’re thinking.

Will this herald yet another untimely celebrity death and bring twitter to an equally untimely end?

I sure hope not.  At the very least, I hope I have a chance to be buzzed before twitter takes a dump all over the Internet.

So onward we will press… This time around, wine twitter-maven and all-around ubiquitous (and hilarious) on-line wine goddess Thea (a.k.a. WinebratSF) will be leading us through a tasting of wines hand-picked for Summer enjoyment from venerable Napa producer St Supéry Vineyards.

Proceedings will kick off at 9PM ET on Saturday, July 11.  You can read Thea’s energetic intro to the event here.  A run-down of the wines looks promising:

I’ll be in attendance, as I can’t seem to achieve escape velocity for any TTL event… nor would I want to, come to think of it…

Hopefully, I’ll see you on-line as well (you can RSVP here).  In the past, I’ve tried to capture some of the twitter banter via plug-ins on, but TTL has now become so successful that there aren’t any plug-ins that can track and replay enough twitter accounts to make a replay worthwhile!

As one of the few people who’ve been able to participate in TTL form the very beginning, and to watch it grow (and contribute a bit to its success) along with its generous founding members… well, in a way it makes me very proud and happy to see how far it has come.

TTL is officially ROCKIN’ LIKE DOKKEN, baby!

On Saturday, I’ll be toasting to what will hopefully be many, many, many more TTL events.

Twitter Fail Whale be damned.

    Wow… a Dokken reference… takes me back to high school outdoor concerts with local bands trying to play like Dokken… and I wasn't drinking wine back then. I've RSVP'd and will see you online as I'll be joining Hardy (DirtySouthWine fame) and friends for this event… cheers!

    Dokken? I’m laughing hard right now. These guys really sucked live! It was all "studio magic" my friend. Without the crazy mad guitar skills of George Lynch, this 80’s hair metal band would have been another White Lion.

  • Ashley Lauren

    Dokken? What a classic reference. One of the worst 80's bands with the best hair.

  • Mark

    They did have some kick-ass riffs. But they couldn't deliver the goods live. They were video rockers not the real deal like Motley Crue and Bon Jovi that delivered the goods and the smokin' hot babes night after night in the 80's. I will give it to George Lynch though for being the first "metal" guitarist to frost his hair. That dude was a incredible guitarist-frosted hair and all!
    Check this out-

    Just awesome stuff!!

    Man, such little love for Dokken!

    I don't care what anyone says, Unchain The Night kicked ass!!!

    Also… George Lynch is now following me on twitter. Just sayin'.

  • Mark

    Agree. This guy could have been a rock legend like Eddie Van Halen if he had a more charismatic frontman and a better musical ensemble around him. I unfortunately saw this band twice in Philadelphia in the 80's as an opening act and they bit the bullet both times.
