It's finally here! Beaujolais Day! The third Thursday in
November is by tradition Beaujolais Day, the first day you
can buy the latest vintage of Beaujolais (called
"Beaujolais Nouveau"). All around the world, time zone
after time zone, as the clock hit midnight, closely-guarded
bottles of Beaujolais were opened and tasted for the first
time. Hooray for that!
Apparently they have a Mardi Gras-style bacchanalia in the Beaujolais area to
celebrate the new wine. People run wild in the streets! Women drink
Beaujolais from big party cups and let the wine run down their chins and over
their full round naked breasts! OK, I made that last part up, but, hell, it
Anyways, Pigdog Journal will be celebrating tonight with a cup of Beaujolais
cheer, and I enjoin you to do the same. Go get some Beaujolais Nouveau and act
like a freak! And when you're good and liquored up, practice the Pigdog love
call on passersby: "Boo-zho-lay, Bay-bee!"
