Entertaining this month?
Every now and again we clean out the apartment and assess the damage that the last year has done. Out of 10 wine glasses, we have two left. We say to ourselves, "We must buy new wine glasses." But the ones we had (beautiful) are no longer available anywhere. Upon asking around, we get this advice:
Buy crystal glasses. Don't mess with pure glass.
Riedel are the best, but buy Spiegelau because they are just as good and much cheaper.
So we head out on the town and buy our first set of crystal wine glasses. Our choice? Spiegelau Authentis. We bought four white and four red wine glasses to try out. Then, Monday night we stop into Veritas (famous for wine) on 20th street for a drink after a meeting and discover that Veritas uses the SAME GLASSES. We think we are so smart.
Then we find them at Amazon for @ $6 apiece (sets of 6). Even better. (Thanks, Jenny & John!)
