…game-changing white. At a recent David Bowler portfolio tasting in New York City, I had an eye-opening, palate-wowing, nose-pleasing wine that got me excited.

It was a tip from my Portuguese Facebook friend, Vitor Mendes , that led me to the Metropolitan Pavilion in Manhattan. I zipped out of my day job, crossed the Hudson, and hustled over to 18th street. "Where is this tasting?" After a confusing few minutes trying to resurrect the FB conversation …

…Lovers Left Alive— being released nationally this Friday after a limited run in New York and L.A.—as too much like its characters: cold, distant, and technically lifeless. They will have a point. The director's formal restraint can chafe— Stranger Than Paradise , which first won him indie fame back in 1984, cuts to black after every scene. Even his prior forays into genre— Ghost Dog 's samurai hijinks, Dead Man 's acid-western longueur—featured …

Around the turn of the 20 th century—a golden age for libraries in America—the Snead Bookshelf Company of Louisville, Ky., developed a new system for large-stack library shelving. Snead's multifloor stack systems can still be seen in many important libraries built in that era, for instance at Harvard, Columbia, the Vatican, and at Bryant Park in New York City. Besides storing old bundles of bound paper, Snead's stacks provided load-bearing structural support to …

My favorite: the lightly floral, bone dry Gewurz Kastelaz, brilliant with the smoked trout and horseradish crema at The Marrow, NYC.

Camden Yards, with Lenn Thompson of the New York Cork Report. And like many of the other attendees we stumbled upon Millstone. The cool part was that they were a different kind of producer. They made meade and cider. Normally I am not such a big meade guy, but there are some very good ones out there these days. These folks are in Monkton, MD. The place is run by Curt Sherrer and his son Kyle.

Millstone uses only heirloom apples. Good cider apples may not make great table apples …

…of a Blonde Imperial Stout. But we do not intend to stay behind, and in this year, New York brewers shall make up and move ahead. Many years ago the great British explorer George Mallory, who was to die on Mount Everest, was asked why did he wanted to climb it. He said, "Because it is there." When President John F. Kennedy was asked why we were going to the moon, he said, "Because it is there, and we're going to climb it, and the moon and the planets are there, …

…Rioja Wines in which I will be taking part in Tapas Fest in NYC (mostly as a panel moderator for both geekified and introduction-style panel sessions about Rioja wine) as well as hosting a # RiojaBuzz Tweet Chat on April 24th at 8:30pm EST/5:30pm PST (during which we'll start tasting through some Rioja goodness in lip-smacking anticipation of the NYC event).

I'll naturally not be formally reviewing any Rioja juice here on 1WD until after that …

Some kids fantasized about Hollywood. I fantasized about New York. Blame the movies. Forget the palm trees, give me yellow taxicabs and Gershwin's brass as background music.

And, being a reader, I read about New York. Voraciously. Somewhere in all those years, with decades between visits, I learned about Eisenberg's Sandwich Shop. When I began to visit the city with some regularity, I saw it from Fifth Avenue buses, although I was usually busier looking at the Flatiron Building across the street. But I never got there.

Levi Dalton, ex New York sommelier and host of the podcast I'll Drink to That! , could not be more of an enthusiast for Piemonte's finest wines. As preparation for my article on the growth of interest in Barolo , I therefore asked him for his comments and how these wines are currently viewed by.
