Okay - it can't be all politics all the time!
Some of you may and others may not know that in my almost non-existent spare time I am a wine collector and enthusiast.
I also run a wine, food and restaurant blog called The Wine Barbarian that offers advice based on my drinking and eating experiences - it's nowhere near what I'd like it to be but I hope you might find it useful to have a look.
And particularly if you are going to the Vancouver Playhouse's International Wine Festival on Friday or Saturday night - because I went on Thursday night and tasted and tasted and tasted wines in order to give Wine Barbarian readers the fruits of my labour without the after effects
So visit The Wine Barbarian blog for my picks that click - even if you aren't going to the Festival many of the wines there and others on my blog are readily available at your local liquor or wine store.
