Cellar Rat: Day Three

Finally, Friday.  I’m not gonna lie, I’m pooped.  It’s been the busiest week I’ve had in a while, and for the first time in months I have that feeling of, “Geez, I sure have a lot on my to-do list, and I haven’t the foggiest idea of how I’m going to get it all done.”

I only worked a half day at Crushpad today, mostly setting up and then taking part in our first Crush Camp.  We had two clients come through, which is abnormally small, but fun since you get so much interaction with them that way.  And clients are always such a great revitalizer — just when you think you’re totally pooped out, they show up so bright eyed and bushy tailed, ready to talk, taste, and make wine.  It’s awesome.  And the community Crushpad has created is incredible.  I love that people can show up from all over the world, but are buddies in minutes because of their common interest in fermented grape juice.

I’m cutting this post a bit short, as I just scarfed down a late lunch and need to hit the showers and pack…I’m headed to LA for the weekend to tailgate and see the USC – OSU game.  And what would a trip to LA be without a dinner at El Cholo?  Oh, the many nights I spent at El Cholo as an undergraduate…but I’ll save those stories for another post.

Reader, have a wonderful weekend, and I’ll see you right back here on Monday.
