Super Gay Movie in the Works: Macho

I know it has been a while since I posted but between my journals and my trip to Spain (pics to be posted soon) and everything else crazy going on…. I have been swamped.

But the project I am about to share about was very very important to me for several reasons but I will give you two. 1.

Have you ever joined a wine club or thought about joining a wine club? I have considered joining wine clubs before but never really made the investment. I know what I “like” so I was a bit nervous about just taking their shipments without them knowing me.

So when I came across TastingRoom.com, I was very excited.  They boast that they are a new kind of wine club, and that they have created “the world’s first personalized wine experience.” It’s a simple enough plan (like most of these box of a month clubs), you receive a case of 12 bottles of wine every three months based on your taste.
