On Favorites

So, as a good little Lush, and as a complete geek in life and in wine, I often blog hop and read what other people are thinking and writing about wine, beer, spirits, and food…and sometimes anthropology or other fun tangents.  And, I came across this quote in the Wine Enthusiast blog…

‘As a literature lover, I often bristle when asked to name my “favorite author” or “favorite book of all time.” While I have a clear and consistent idea of what constitutes solid writing, a good plot and interesting characters, I’ve found over the years that my taste for stories and tone is dynamic and certainly influenced by events and people in my life at that given time. While as a romantic teenager I devoured the poet Shelley and all of the breathless effusion he offered, today I turn to the worldliness of Miller, the caustic wit of Plath, the blunt magic of Marquez. And while sinking into a dense, head-bending session of Dostoyevsky makes perfect sense in the dead of winter, it’s not what I want in my hand when I’m kicking back on a beach in the tropics (think Marquez). I love them all, but to choose just one to encompass everything I was, am and might be, is pretty much impossible.’

I guarantee that every staff member at Lush knew I would choose Mado as my BYOB of choice for this post.  Why not?  It’s brand new, it’s fantastically cool and it’s a five-minute walk from my door.  When those factors combine, the chances of me making it a regular haunt reach high levels.
