A disturbance in the Pour

I felt a great disturbance in the Pour, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. I fear something terrible has happened.

The Pour has been folded into the The New York Times aggregate eating and drinking blog.

You were our only hope, Obi-Wan Cannubi.

You are a Jedi Master among wine bloggers: the Pour was what gives a Jedi wine blogger his power. It was an energy field created by all vinous things. It surrounded us and penetrated us. It bound the galaxy together.

The Pour will be with you, always.

Credit where credit is due: I owe the above punny title to Alfonso. In exchange I offered free use of “mishegas impossible.”

  1. I know….I simply hate it. I look at my blogroll and get fooled into thinking Eric has a new post and dammit if it isn’t some food article. Hate that the blogroll went away too, made me feel all legit and stuff.

    if you want to keep Eric’s work separate in your blogrolls, bookmarks, etc., though I’d much rather see the Times reinstate The Pour.
