Wow – Between activities organized by the Social Committee and visiting Yacht Clubs coming to the club house as our guests, it has been a busy month at the bar. Thanks to all of the MAST License holders who have stepped up and lent a hand to Darcy during these busy nights. It makes a big difference and is much appreciated.
And July looks to be just as busy. We are looking for that perfect wine to pair with Dungeness crab for the upcoming crab feed if anyone has suggestions. Tacoma Yacht Club will be in town, and they always have a big crowd (and big boats).
Our primary wine vendor High Spirits has a good business model to keep prices down, but it occasionally causes us to change products. They buy excess stock, last runs or other deals at a great price then pass that on to us. The challenge is once that pallet or two run out, we can’t get more at the same price, so we pick something new. We are down to our last few bottles of Montinore Pinot Gris which will be replaced with Terlato Pinot Gris. Taste tests held at the club gave this new white wine high marks. Give it a try. We have switched to Montes for both our Cabernet and Merlot. Please let me know what you think of it. Secret Squirl red blend are our bestselling wines so I keep it in stock but must pay a bit more. That’s why Squirl is higher than other red wines on the menu
For summer we have added a Rose wine, Capricho Rosado. Give it a try.
I can’t believe there are less then 4 months to Change of Watch. I feel like I am just getting this Bar Management thing figured out. It’s been fun and should be in pretty good shape for the next Rear Commodore the club decides to vote in.
All the Best and keep enjoying your bar,
