WBW #59 sipping some sake & other Green Drinks on July 8

July 8, 2009

wandering_poet sakeTwo ways to get your drink on this Wednesday, July 8: join the international community of wine bloggers sipping sake the second Wednesday this month or find your local community for Green Drinks, typically the second Tuesday or Wednesday each month.

Lenn Thompson writes that the 59th edition of Wine Blogging Wednesday, hosted by The Passionate Foodie, is an homage to Kushi no Kami, the ancient name for the god of Saké, and that the theme is perfect:  “it’s just the kind of WBW theme that inspired the event in the first place — a forced exploration of a region or type of wine that is new or unknown…”

Host Richard, the Passionate Foodie says that “Saké was once referred to as “kushi” which translates as “something mysterious or strange.” To many people, Saké still is mysterious and strange but I hope to unveil some of that mystery and reveal its wonders.” Read Richard’s full post to get all the details and for links to more information on Saké.

Sounds to me like a great excuse to go have some sushi! And I’ve been itching to write about some organic sake I tasted too, as well as “The Wandering Poet” aka Li Po, one of my favorite Asian poets, “ who lived from 701-762 and was known to drink a lot before writing. He was claimed to have said, “I drink a bottle and write 100 poems.” ! Watch for a post on that soon!

Ventura County Green Drinks Ventura Country meets Weds. July 8 from 5:30-7:30pm at PizzaSalad in Thousand Oaks 1655 E. TO Blvd. Rumor has it PizzaSalad doesn’t just serve a pizza crust made with organic flour and a couple of organic toppings, PizzaSalad also serves pizzas and salads which are made entirely with USDA certified organic ingredients, from the spices and herbs to the flour and olive oil to the cheese and greens.

Whether they offer organic, biodynamic or sustainable grown wine and beer remains to be seen.
