If you are like me, you would rather [fill in your own dreadful option] than watch Cam Newton play next weekend.  For those of you in the same boat I offer an alternative--Mead tasting in Woodinville.  For those that have never tried mead you are missing out.  My wife and I first tried it in Boston and loved it.  It is like wine, but made from honey rather than grapes.  We can all drowned our sorrows together and talk about next year’s Seahawk run to the Superbowl, or avoid the topic of football altogether.

Here is a link to their website:

We can play it by ear, but if we want to try some nearby wine or beer tasting rooms, there are plenty.  Here is a link to the map with all the wineries listed:

Time: Sunday, Feb. 7 at 1pm. 

Address: Sky River Mead, 14270 Woodinville Redmond RD NE, Redmond, WA.

For folks coming up from the south end, throw out a meet up location and we can convoy up together.

Some say this event is sour grapes, but they're wrong.......it's fermented honey!

With enough mead you might think the windows are tinted....but it eventually fades to clear.

Sorry I couldn't make it. Ended up getting the windows tinted and then installed the M7 strut brace with reinforcement plates and the black trim pieces that go around my fog lamps on the aero front bumper.

For good measure I washed and waxed it as well.

Sorry you couldn't make it. We had about 8 folks turn out and had a beautiful sunny day of mead and wine tasting.
