Another "Red Zeppelin" imitator?


It's getting more frequent, it seems. I'm sure the owner of this Washington State winery hears a lot of jokes about his name: Jim Page. But how he got the idea that he could call a wine Red Zeppelin when I've had the trademark and used it continually for over eighteen years, I don't know. Maybe he's an attorney with a bad attitude, or perhaps he doesn't own a computer. We'll find out.
UPDATE: "We only made two barrels, and we're sold out." Yeah, you are.

One week to go!


Since serious planning for this event started in February, it's gratifying and exciting to realize that it's less than 170 hours away - and with winery and vineyard making their own demands, not to mention family, friends and fans, the additional time and thought required to deal with unassembled dancing cages, efficient wine dispensing equipment, radical venue decoration, colorful handouts, security considerations, and shuffling Elvis impersonators and other (dare I say real? - no, I don't) rock stars amongst hotel rooms, I think I'll sit down for a minute and write a blog post. Wasn't that fun?

Musicans at Wet Zeppelin!

With the perhaps timely demise of the Flying Mambos (surfers put guitars down, pick up bongs and fly to Sumatra) we can breathe slightly easier . . . we have a wealth of incredibly talented musicians, and only one party to feature them at! That means that everyone else can do one more song. We also have the awesome Taco Temple as our protein concessionaire, serving from 6ish until the food runs out . . .
