NOVEMBER 19, 2014 Brown Hotel on #Go Israel Tour
“Interesting!” I thought, seeing a DJ spinning tunes as I walked into the Brown Urban Hotel in Tel Aviv. Like its name, it’s color is brown, and there is a certain mellow quality to the place and energetic young people who work here.

NOVEMBER 21, 2014 Antonin Rodet Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2011
Tasted this French Bourgogne, Antonin Rodet Pinot Noir 2011 at Domaine Wine bar on Vernon Boulevard in Long Island City. Attractive gamey aromas of barnyard and underbrush with red fruits and floral undertones, the palate is dry but with healthy tannins showing red cherry, raspberry, muted strawberry and chalky floral notes on the back of the tongue. Very light and balanced. the fruit holds it''s own against the tannins, good long finish
