And a great party it was! Great to see so many people there and to talk to them. Thanks Kat for opening your home to all of us. And the decorations, as in this tree where Robin and Tina are chatting, were marvelous. And the food that everyone shared was fabulous.

A very interesting selection of wines and food tonight. And as Erica Larsen said, “Great food and wine for $15. Bottles were $11 each! Delicious! Another dinner tomorrow if you are interested.” Wine selections from New Zealand, Germany, Hungary, South Africa and Portugal. And Cristi kept it interesting with the food parings. If you missed this dinner, there is another with the same fare and wines tonight, October 9. You just can not beat the price – $15.00 per person – and the food selections. Cheers and hope to see you at one of these dinners. Personally, I think this was one of the better Wine Dinners. Great job, Cristi!! Enjoy these photos. Left-Click to see them enlarged.
The first WHIP Night at the Buzz was a good success. There were about 15 people there with all types of camera questions. I hope they all got answered to their satisfaction. The pasta salad pictured here was part of the dinner menu with appetizers. (None are left on this plate – they were that good!) The WHIP program will be held the last Thursday of each month from 5:00pm – 8:00pm. Each program will have someone in to talk about or explain about a specific topic.
For August and the first in the series, Cristi explains the event as, “Buzz Coffee and Wine is hosting our WHIP night each month on the last Thursday of the month. This is a time where We Help Inspire People (WHIP). This is a come and go event where each month we will have a guest that is very knowledgeable about a certain subject here at the Buzz to answer questions. This month we are pleased to have Bob Young coming to help us with our photography questions. Bob authors several blogs and has published a book with photographs of birds. Bring your questions and join us anytime between 5 and 8 on Thursday August 29. We will have flights of wine featuring women winemakers and food specials, no reservations required. Tell your friends and stop by.”

Great food and great friends gathered at The Buzz in Boise to convey our condolences to Cristi and her family for her loss. We were sitting outside and the fire storm from about 50 miles east of Boise and 25 miles north, presented an imposing image of the vastness of the fire. This morning on NPR I heard were the combined two fires was about 120,000 acres. Yuk!
As we gathered, we shared food as a means of bonding our friendships. Everyone who attended, was asked to bring some type of pot luck. And, if you desired, bring a wine. We took a 2010 Fujishin Family Cellars Viognier, a corn pie and grilled fresh herbed zucchini. (Photos are below) Others brought all kinds of wines, BBQ pork, beans, soup, vegetable platter, hot artichoke dip, brownies and different breads. It was a good gathering to show the extent of our friendship for Cristi and her family. Here are a few more photos. Left-Click any of the photos to see enlarged.
We do hope that everyone has a great 2013! And that you also had an exciting New Years Eve party. Robin and I did. Very quiet. But very delicious. Started out, somewhat, with this Red Cabbage and Sausage over a Baked Potato. It was yummy. Then we went to more of a party mode with the finger foods we made pictured below.
