Dear Friends ~
Just returning from a deep, lovely week of research in North and South Carolina (articles to come), I’m heading into an intensive two weeks of spirits judging at ADI International Craft Spirits Awards and SF World Spirits Comp. Ready to spit and blind judge hundreds of the world’s best (and under-the-radar) spirits!
In addition to my regular articles at The Bold Italic, my weekly dining column reviews one restaurant each week. I welcome those interested to follow me, or even sign up for a membership for my articles at Medium, which partially goes to support us as writers. Follow or support. I thank you.
