mad men: wine passes on this episode

Again, this is a catch-up post but it’s a doozy. Last Sunday’s episode was the  official first where no wine was consumed. But being the most amazing drink in the world, it is completely obvious why: the episode was about ugly things, and wine wanted NOTHING to do with it!

Joan had her epic moral moment, and things were just very dirty business all around. Wine would never besmirch itself like that – leave it to the other yucky drinks to do that! Let’s take a look:

mad men lobster

roger orders lobster for the brainstorming, with some drinks too but I can’t really tell what they are

mad men lobster wine

it sort of looks like rose, but that’s very un-roger. i changed my mind and went with some sort of beer as they wouldn’t have that many bottles of wine anyway.
