As I discussed in my most recent post, I was recently invited to attend Taste208 as a member of the media. I was confused by this at first, as I don't really consider myself a member of the media. Perhaps to a very small extent during my brief stint as a freelancer, but I was contacted regarding the event because of this site. Even more interesting is the fact that I really only write about food here, and the emphasis of Taste208 was Northwest wines, beers and spirits. Beyond knowing what I like, I don't know much about alcohol, so I figured this might be a chance to learn a thing or two. Besides, I was so flattered to be invited that there was no way in hell that I wasn't going!
