What did you do last Wednesday? What about last Thursday? Well, back here, Jerusalem was host to 2 very different back-to-back festivals. The first was the Wine Festival which took place on the grounds of the Israel Museum. Visitors paid 50 Shekels and were able to sample as much wine as they could handle from a good variety of both large and small Israeli Vineyards.

One could not fail to notice the relative sophistication of the crowd early in the evening as those with some wine knowledge swirled the wine in their glasses, looked at the color, commented on it’s oakiness and the caramel undertones. Of course, as the night went on people just got wasted – I even noticed people drinking chilled Rieslings while holding the goblet rather than the stem! Gasp! How gauche! But you know it was a hot event because all kinds of people were there! Tel Avivians shlepped to Jerusalem! Frum and secular folks mixed comfortably with French olim and the usual anglo suspects who show up wherever booze is plentiful and relatively inexpensive.

Who’s in the pics above? From left to right starting on the first row, we have Enia and our own Leah (who is heading off to Atlanta for her CNN fellowship!), Simone and Yoni, Rebecca and Yoni, some dude and Ahuvah, me smoking a Cuban cigar, Jewlicious Taglit-birthright Israel trip alumna Shira and friend, Leah interviewing Matt Barr, one of the PICZ fellows and random woman 1 and random woman 2 who insisted I photograph them – no problem ladies… Good times, good times. So seriously – what did you do last Wednesday?
