Decatur Rotary Club Providing Free Moonshine

Government building implicated. Local Baptists threaten boycott of something once they can think of what to boycott - call it "Demon Rum, but worse because it's free." Developing . . .

Doesn't the bottom say "tickets are $20" ?

Barry - Did you not realize that the biggest Christians in Decatur are the Baptist, Deacon, rotary club, divorce lawyers? Are you questioning their nobility or their right to sell alcohol......... please remember, sir, they are bigger Christians than you could ever hope to be. If you don't believe me then just ask them.

Let me remind you that Montague County (aka Gawd's Country) helped bail the French out of their wine blight.

We, some how, thanks to Mr. Munson, shipped vine cuttings from NORTH TEXAS to affix to their dying grapevines, thus, rejuvenating their plants, allowing them (the French) to keep making wine.

I've seen the great grapevine out on FM455 north of Montague at the old science farm. It's fascinatingly huge, the largest grapevine/tree I have ever seen in my life. Have any of y'all seen it?

Gawd's Country grapes were there for the French when they needed them (along with Grayson County grapes.)

And now, we have some local wineries...even in Wise County......those folks work their arses off to make this stuff. I know that for a fact.

Go Wine, especially Watermelon Wine. Y'all had any of that?

Oh, Jesus drank wine too.

P.S. To Hell with the Baptists.

I think the walk up thing is free. The sit down is $20. I don't drink wine, but went to a wine tasteing some time back. It was a lot of fun. Good friends, good times!

Sorry, it's not all free, the walk up cost $20.00, too. But you get a genuine Decatur Rotary Club wine glass (real glass), the food to pair with the wine choices available and with the Wise County Art Association's exhibits on display to enjoy, it's an unbeatable bargain!

The Lion's Club Moto is "We Serve".
Apparently the Rotarians moto is:
"We serve wine."

From someone that did not like wine tell I went to the wine tasting in April at the home and garden show. It sure make a different now when I look at buying wine to go with what I am cooking now. So enjoy our Texas wines.

If it hadn't been for attending wine tasting seminars, I never would have known what goes best with Mad Dog 20/20 (Big Macs) or Boone's Farm Strawberry Hill (Sonicburgers). I only hope this is one of those "All You Can Drink" affairs.

Hey, Barry, if I happen to nail some bottles a little too hard, leave your number so I can call to handle any traffic infractions that might crop up.

Seem that, many years ago, Dallas County ran into some legal issues about selling alcohol beverages in government buildings. I don't know where this is taking place or if it is being sold.

I attended the first wine tasting ever in Decatur. It was great fun, very classy and dignified. Mr. Sides is a very educated wine conasaeur (sp?) and is certainly not a "stuffed shirt." If you people are up for an entertaining evening whilst still learning the artistry of consuming wine with its properly companioned "snack" then you should attend the next wine tasting. I predict these will become events to eventually be held in the BIG convention room instead of one of the small conference rooms. hmmmmm...probably in 2 years that will happen. Mark it down! Oct, 2010! Wise county is a great place to be, but some "worldliness" is coming! Enjoy!
