Attend Dayton-area wine tastings, achieve marital bliss

We reported on a study earlier this week that suggests that couples who get drunk together stay together. Or something like that.

Guess my wife and I are the outliers. We’re approaching 38 years together, 33 as a married couple. Other than an occasional ounce or two of fine German Riesling, she doesn’t drink. I’ve found a few other wines besides German Riesling (and a craft beer or two) that my palate deems acceptable.

We beat the odds!

And YOU can beat the heat this weekend by attending one or more of the fine wine-tastings, beer-tastings, and other fine events on the list that comes to us via the heroic efforts of a Dayton-based wine-listserv. Read, attend, enjoy — and give your spouse a kiss!
