Clara C Prosecco! Perfect to welcome back you-know-who…

Alright, peoples.  This is going to be hard for me to write.  But I know it will appeal to many of you out there, so here goes…

Hey, everyone!  Football is starting next week!  What could be better than BUBBLES to welcome back your beloved Gamecocks?!  Well, lucky for you this non-football fan is looking out for you!  I’ve got a delicious little bottle of Prosecco that would taste simply delicious while you wait on line for your football tickets… oh, wait, drinking on the street is illegal.  Well, it will taste good the morning of the first football game to get yourself psyched up.  It’s great by itself, but it would mix quite well with fresh OJ for a mimosa.  Are mimosa’s illegal for Gamecock fans?  Seeing as they’re orange?  This is why I’m not a football fan; things like this are very foreign to me.  Perhaps a bloody mary would be more appropriate.  I really don’t know.  I’m trying very hard here.  You can’t possibly understand how little a Yankee like me knows about College football.  In New England, there is only the NFL.  I know it’s tough to imagine, but there really is no such thing as College football anywhere but the South.  I’m not trying to rain on your parade, or for heaven’s sake doubt the importance of the Cocks, but just keep that in mind…


Little Clara here will be at the Wine Sale this Saturday the 29th (12-2) for $12, and we’re also pouring it by the glass here at Cellar right now.  It’s a pretty, delicate wine, with light citrus and green apples on the nose, and a touch of something flowery… honeysuckle, maybe.  Nice amount of bubbles.  I know that sounds like a wierd thing to say about a sparkling wine, but sometimes I find Prosecco’s don’t have quite enough to really make me feel like I’m drinking a sparkling wine.  It’s fairly dry, but not bone-dry.  I think it’s a steal for $12.  And it really would make a perfect mimosa.  Get you some fresh OJ… mmm.  That’s where it’s at.  You could even save Clara for the day AFTER the first game of the season when you need a little “hair-of-the-dog.”  There is really nothing quite like a mimosa with a late morning greasy breakfast to cure a hangover. 

A quick plea before I sign off… remember those home football games you love so much?  Well, we here in the restaurant business TRY to love them… but it’s very hard when it feels like your restaurant gets ditched faster than Jennifer Aniston whenever there’s a game.  I’m not saying you shouldn’t go… goodness, no… just don’t forget about us completely.  Stop in and grab a glass of wine an extra time that week.  We miss you.  Really. 

Hope to see everyone at the sale on Saturday!
