football week wine fun, and eli leads the way!
It’s fall(ish), it’s football, and it’s FOOTBALL WEEK once again on grapefriend! Most people think beer for games, but grapefriends think wine. Football foods are actually amazing with wine, and even though my mission to get better wine in sports bars hasn’t swept the nation (YET) you can still pop a good bottle on your … Continue reading
happy fantasy draft happy hour
It’s draft night! Seriously, the old beer and football pairing can suck it. This is how we do it at Grapefriend HQ. The plan was to get some other people from my league over and ply them with tons of wine so that when the draft starts they’ll be wasted and I’ll be able to grab … Continue reading
and the super bowl champion is…
Moet! That’s what the Ravens apparently popped on the field to celebrate their win over the 49ers. Not that any official sports photogs snapped any shots in the locker room – why capture the important stuff??? But I found this one on Simon Evans’ Instagram – he’s a Reuters reporter. There was also this pic … Continue reading
super grape bowl: 49ers vs ravens
As far as a grapey Super Bowl between the 49ers and the Ravens, you’d think San Francisco would have it in the bag.

For this weekend’s games, lots was on the line: crab cakes from Baltimore, Denver “cowboy steaks,” cheese curds from Wisconsin, and San Fran sourdough bread. There is one mayor and one mayor only who is a … Continue reading

giants d: huge grapefriends!
So last night I’m hanging at this WSJ Magazine event at Burberry for the launch of The Britain watch. I was happy enough just sipping on my Veuve when I heard there were Giants on premises: cornerbacks Prince Amukamara and Justin Tryon. Well of course I had to meet them, and they were really lovely … Continue reading
rg3: suck my grapes
The pain just keeps on coming. It’s bad enough Giants fans have to contend with RG3 in our division, now I find out the Redskins have their own wine this year!?! Some 80th anniversary commemorative thing, it’s a Cab from California’s Alexander Valley which is a pretty good place for Cabs. They’re selling it for … Continue reading
