So prior to the MLK assassination plotline, we were at the advertising awards thingy and Megan was packin’.
She sipped her Champagne (which, as a reminder, does not count in the wine count), but after that there was very little drinking – of grapes or even cocktails. Even Don wasn’t drinking in the office, though then he went on a Canadian Club bender later on.
And Michael didn’t have wine on his date with Beverly, but he probably wouldn’t have wine anyway. And they went to a diner, which was very Silver Linings Playbook of him.
So that was it for this week – no grapes. In tragic episodes like this, they usually don’t drink wine (remember this one last season?). Fine by us, but let’s take a moment to at least thank Megan for her Champagne effort. She got the Andy Award and continues to prove why she won the Official Mad Men Grapefriend award too.
Mad Men season 6 wine count: stays at 16
Why does champagne not count?
Because everyone was already drinking Champagne for celebration – this is more to see about still wine that started infiltrating the US in the late 60s/early 70s…

The first line cracks me up! And your live-tweeting during Mad Men makes it all the more enjoyable. Keep it up!
awesome, thanks – cheers!
