Me? Really? I won something?

I NEVER win anything. I can enter a bazillion (yes, a bazillion) contests and not win. That car that's being given away? Won't be me. Vacation for two to the Seychelles? Nada. Television at high school graduation afterparty? Nope.

That streak broke this past week. I had entered Dining in DC's drawing for tickets to Toast of the Town, a wine tasting and foodie event thrown by Wine Enthusiast Magazine. (For a rundown on all of the restaurants and vineyards/wine distributors that will be there, go here.)

Lots of wine? And yummy food? How could I NOT enter??? And I actually won! The lovely Lisa at Dining in DC contacted me and another lucky winner on Monday. I was so stuck in the not-winning-anything rut that I actually had made plans for Friday night - thankfully, my friends are sweet enough to reschedule (thanks Lee!).

Steve has been researching and plotting his course through the event since that night. I'm pretty sure he's more excited than I am. He already knows where the wines he wants to try are located and where all of the stations with cheese are. I'm pretty sure that's all he needs to be happy the entire night.

So THANK YOU, Dining in DC and Lisa! I will be sure to report back about our long as I don't fall into a wine tasting haze by 9 pm. Which could happen.

Hopefully not.

Happy almost Friday everyone! What are your plans for the weekend? Cooking? Going out?

Have fun!
