Beaujolais Nouveau Party

The famous French wine, beaujolais nouveau was released yesterday, as it always is on the third Thursday in November. The tradition to celebrate the release of the annual harvest with a party and a few precious bottles of the wine is a popular tradition in France, and a few other parts of the world. Japan too has jumped in on the action. Last night I bundled up and headed out to my first ever beaujolais nouveau party. I filled up on European appetizers and countless bottles of wine, making friends with every sip.

I never actually tried the beaujolais nouveau. 
Ridiculous, I know. 
I started with white because I was hot when I walked in, and then I just kept drinking and talking to people and completely forgot why I was there at all. 
Fail Keito.

Next third Thursday of November I'll be ready,
