39. Know Something about Wine

drinking wine1Get your hands on a Magnum or Methuselah, stay away from the Cleanskin and make sure you always use a Drip Dickey.  Just try not to be a Cork Dork about it all.

Knowing something about wine can be a gateway to cool.  Picture this:

You sit at the head of a 20 person table in a fancy restaurant.  The waiter approaches and corks a bottle of Antinori Solaia Cabernet Sauvignon 2005.  He pours you a small amount to test.  You pick up the glass and you see, swirl, sniff and sip.  There is a collective gasp of anticipation as your party awaits your verdict.  “TAKE IT BACK!” you bellow, unsatisfied.  Your friends are grateful to have a connoisseur in their midsts and you are the coolest person in the room, although maybe not in the eyes of the waiter.
