Corkscrewed Author Robert Camuto Discusses and Pours Wine at 18 Reasons

On Thursday February 19th, from 7-9pm, author Robert Camuto will be appearing at 18 Reasons, a small gallery that hosts weekly wine tastings put on by Bi Rite Market. Mr. Camuto's book is an entertaining, lighthearted but thought provoking account of the author's travels and conversations with vignerons in French wine country. See McDuff's Food & Wine Trail for an informative book review (not to mention a fun comment thread) which is actually the genesis of a special offer which Camuto first proposed and emphasized to me in a recent email:

"PS: Joe, Any way you can blog this event in advance? Also, I am serious I will do a little extra something for those who arrive on bicycle and mention your/David's blog...."

I will definitely be there, and since I will be heading there directly from work I intend to ride there. Last I heard, fellow San Francisco based wine blogger Wolfgang Weber will also be there (arriving via bicycle, perhaps?) I encourage anyone based in the Bay Area to check it out, and if possible ride your bike there to get some VIP bicyclist treatment courtesy of the author.
