I'll Have the Chateau Latrobe

Hey, Gay Guy,

We've covered the straight beer vs. gay wine debate in some our first posts (here and here). But new data from Gallup shows that beer is back to a double-digit lead over wine as America's favorite drink. (
Back in '05, wine surged past beer in a one-year anomaly, probably based on the influence of the movie "Sideways.")

But, for the over-50 crowd, wine has long been the top pick.
(Here's the link to the full story.)

So, here's the tough question Gay Guy. Do you drink wine because you are gay, or because you are old?

Oops, gotta run.

[Door slams. The sound of quick steps fading away.]

Red wine only. Because it is good for a man's heart. Have you never read an issue of Men's Health?

It's not because GG's old. He was the resident wine conn-o-sewer back in the early 1980s. He did his best to steer folks away from Table Red and Table White (when most New York State wine was Mad Dog in a classier label)whenever possible. Actually, I'm a little surprised he didn't invent the sandals with concealed corkscrew back then...

Oh, SG...you are SO MEAN. Can I assume you are of the "Coors" mentality? I'm with GG here...it's wine all the way...unless it's really HOT. And I'm OUTSIDE. And someone hands me a Corona with a slice of key lime...yum.
