Dan Aykroyd at TWCP

Dan Aykroyd stopped by today. He only stayed for about 10 minutes for pictures and to sign some bottles of his vodka and wine. He checked out the Bordeaux selection and is apparently a fan of Chateau Palmer.

Here he is with Jon from our store holding some of Dan's wine while Dan holds up a copy of Mad Magazine. I guess Mad will publish your picture if you submit it with a celebrity holding their magazine.

more pictures on our new Facebook page.

A lot of people have asked me....
What is Twitter?
It is quite interesting, you can sign up for free and follow whatever you would like. You do not have to post anything on your twitter account. In fact, you can block it so that nobody else can look at your account or see who you are following. After you set up your account, you pick who you want to follow. You can start with TWCPwine and TWCPbeer and then you can check to see who I am following and also follow the ones that interest you.
What it does, is it basically shows you a headline or highlight from the people you are following and you can then click on it to read more.

You can follow: wineries, breweries, CNN, The Onion, New York Times, ESPN, NBC Sports, LA Times, USA Today, Fox, NPR, ABC News, Disney World News, American Idol News, Obama News, McCain News, music bands, celebrity fan pages, Gourmet Food News, FDA Food Recalls, The Food Network....the list goes on and on. You can find just about anything you are interested in.

Here is a snap shot of my screen...

Dan Aykroyd

Got a chance to go to lunch with Dan Aykroyd at Portabellas. He is in town promoting his vodka and wine. He said he will stop by the store tomorrow -- Wednesday March 18 around 3pm or 3:30pm to sign some bottles. I will post tomorrow if it actually happens. He will only have a few minutes to sign some bottles that we will have for sale.
