lummi island wine tasting may 27-28 ’22

Memorial Day Weekend Schedule

Short post tonight, folks…it’s 8:30 pm Thursday, May 26, and we just got home a few hours ago from our 3-week trailer trip. So this will be brief note to tell you about our special event Friday.  (“today,” if you are on our mailing list).

#1.  We are happy to be back, and are looking forward to seeing you all!

#2. The Wine Shop will be OPEN as usual for sales and tasting Friday and Saturday from 4-6 pm. Janice will be delivering weekly bread orders, and we will be pouring three particularly good wines (see notes, below), including two from Sineann Winery in Oregon which, while a little pricey, were big hits when we last poured them a couple of years ago.

#3. Friday Special Event: From 4-6 pm we will be hosting a Meet and Greet with State Senate candidate Sharon Shewmach. Sharon has been our District representative to the State Legislature for two terms and is now running for the seat left vacant last winter with the passing of the late Doug Ericksen, who held the seat for many years. Tragically and ironically, Covid denier Ericksen succumbed to the very disease he claimed was a hoax. (…In full disclosure, I endorse Ms. Shewmach partially because by coincidence she currently holds the faculty position at WWU that I held for some years a few decades ago. And although, as Harry Truman noted, “if you laid all the economists in the world end to end, they would still point in different directions,” the world of environmental economics shares some basic common values…)
