fromthepublisherYes, I was MIA this weekend, butfor good reason: the NFL playoffgame between the Atlanta Falconsand San Francisco ‘49ers.It doesn’t hurt to have a friend who is afriend of the owner of the ‘49ers.So forgive me for reducing this paperto 24 pages and missing several events,including JA Uncorked, which I hearfrom my social spy was great!After all these years, I realize that Imissed my true calling: covering sports.In today’s world, I could have even goneinto the locker rooms. Imagine!But what fun to attend this wild andraucous game. It had all the trappings ofa Super Bowl game, complete with rides,sports competition for the kids, a Lottostation selling scratch-offs, and a bunchof really rowdy fans, both for Atlanta andSan Fran outside the Georgia Dome beforethe game began.Leave it to Atlanta to serve BloodyMarys in Mason jars.Leave it to Atlanta for at least 20 percentof their fans to show up wearingheadpieces in the form of a Falcon head(or maybe that was hawk!)But ‘49er fans were undaunted. Beforethe game, a group of them formed twolines and dared any Falcon fan to walkthrough, This didn’t bode well with thesecurity staff that immediately sent someoneto break up the line.Inside the Georgia Dome, no one satdown, almost for the entire game! WhenKaepernick, the 49ers quarterback wastrying to call plays in the huddle, thenoise in that dome was deafening. I amsure my hearing, which wasn’t that goodbefore the game, lost another couple ofdecibels after.Luckily, we had season-ticket’49erssurrounding us, and we formed a littlecheering squad of our own, even if wewere the only ones who could hearourselves.If you watched the game, you knowthat Falcons jumped out with a 17-0 lead.It looked dismal for the ‘49ers, but partof me, the Tennessee native, was a bithappy for the Atlanta fans seated aroundus. Unlike fans for some other NFL franchises,these fans, while they were loud,they also were courteous, even when theAtlanta team began to falter. I didn’t hearone curse word as you so often do, especiallywhen the Jets and Dolphins playeach other.When the ‘49ers ended with a 28-24win, the stunned Atlanta fans displayedsuch sad faces that I caught myself lipsyncingthe words: “I’m sorry.” But Ican’t deny the joy of victory.Following the game, we walked over towhere the commentators (hair boy JimmyJohnson), Michael Strahan (who is betterlooking in person!) and Terry Bradshawwere staged.Plenty of primping took place on Bradshaw’sface and the bald spot on his head,which went on up to seconds before hejoined the group on the podium set up onthe field.Now, the fun really begins. It is goingto be a “Har-Bro” Super Bowl as thecoaches of the Baltimore Ravens (myFantasy League team!) and the 49ers arecoached by two brothers, Jim and JohnHarbough. (I don’t envy their parents onthat day.)They will meet in The Big Easy, but itwill be a nail-biting experience watchingthe game on TV in Fort Lauderdale.I will be persona non grata around my‘49er fan/friends. But I can’t go againstthe Ravens and Ray Lewis, who is retiringafter this season. And the young man(whose name escapes me now) in the Raven’sadministrative office, who was aformer player and now has ALS, attendsevery game and is an inspiration to thisteam, even though he can’t speak a word.They sat up a computer in the office to allowhim to communicate to the playersand coaches.It’s a beautiful story and deserving ofone more win!Until next time …BettyFebruary 2013 | www.SouthFloridaSocial.com |facebook.com/SouthFloridaSocial3

Recently I enjoyed adelicious bottle of Nicolas Feuillet Rose’,very appropriate for the exquisite settingon the New River -- for a new beginning.The Celebration of Love was accompaniedby the beautifully created Champagne, thewine that goes perfectly with stone crabs…and now the season has begun!Think of the many possibilities ofChampagne or Sparkling in your everydaylife. Bubbly has the ability to changesituations into a marvelous moment, like alate afternoon rendezvous with an old friendat a local wine bar or even home alonepreparing a fabulous pasta dish. An equallygreat moment to pop open a bubbly andvoila! The night begins! My annual “High-Tea” with girlfriends has never been allabout tea. Something about a watercressfinger sandwich that definitely tastes betterwith Champagne.We don’t need reasons or excusesto sip expensive French Champagne ormore affordable California Sparkling,Cava from Spain, Prosecco from Italy andother sparkling from Australia, Brazil andmy new find, Medio/Medio from Uruguay.Champagne vs. Sparkling is really aboutstyle, affordability, taste and the moment!I’m sure most of you know that Champagneis an exclusively designated region in thenorth of France. The cooler climate createsgrapes with higher acidity, perfect for thetraditional “Methode Champenoise” thuscreating Champagne (since the late 1500s).Winemakers tend to use Pinot Noir for body,Pinot Meunier for finesse and Chardonnayfor fruitiness. If you love Chardonnay, thenyou’ll love a 100 percent Blanc de Blanc.A little discussed topic is the bubblescreated in the “Methode Champenoise”process. Millions -- yes, millions -- of tinybubbles stream out of the bottle, only a mere56 million. This must be an almost exact…according to the house of Bollinger. Thinkabout it…how fast can you count? I foundtrying to count the many streams of bubbles, amost unsuccessful challenge! You must try it.Now here’s a tip, if the bubbles are thin,fine, fast moving and in a uniform, evenstream, then you are sipping a qualitywine. This goes for sparkling as well. Moreexpensive sparkling is made in the“MethodeChampenoise” process, but I find that lessexpensive ones have not had the “superior”attention. However, they are still enjoyablefor that special moment in time.Have you ever noticed that bubbles are afavorite of most women? In history, Madamede Pompadour said, ”Champagne wasthe only drink that left a women still morebeautiful” and our very own Marilyn Monroeonce took a bath in it, using 350 bottles! I’veenjoyed many Magnums, (2btls) and oneJeroboam (4btls) with colleagues, but I’mstill waiting for a “Nebuchadnezzar” (20btls)to share. This might only be possible on mynext trip to France -- with 19 of my closestwine lovers!There are three types of champagnes:Non-vintage, Vintage and “Prestige Cuvee.”Of course, the later is my favorite, madefrom the best grapes…the first press…and spends more time aging in the bottle.Since it is made only in vintage years and insmaller quantities, the demand is higher, asis the price.The unique design of the original chalicewas from Helen of Troy, the face thatlaunched a thousand ships, so long ago.Helen of Troy’s breast imprint was usedfor the coupe for all the men in the landto seductively sip from her bosom. Muchlater, Marie Antoinette, the Queen of France,had her moment of stardom, as her breastwould now replace Helen’s for Champagne.Marie’s breast offered a larger surface forbubbles to escape…touching the nose,mouth and the mind. Later the fabulous flutewas introduced.Bubbly and food pairings are endless,ranging from salty caviar, spicy shrimp,steak au poivre and of course decadentdesserts, such as chocolate and terami su.Champagne characteristics range fromdry to extra dry, demi-sec and sec, thelatter meaning sweet. Medio/Medio fromUruguay offers sweetness to the tongueand disappears with delicate smoothness…suggesting more!There is truly something for everyone ina bottle of Champagne, as noted by a few ofthe greats like…Mark Twain quoted:“Too much Champagne is just right.”Candace: “Champagne makes me do sillythings…I toast to You…Candace, Queen ofChampagne @ 33rd Street Wine Bar”12February 2013 | www.SouthFloridaSocial.com |facebook.com/SouthFloridaSocial
