I like bacon. Also, I know how to have a good time. It involves eating bacon, drinking champagne, staying up late, laughing really loud, spending too much money on traveling to exotic places and misbehaving around grown-ups.
Favorite Thing(s) About Albuquerque:
Hangin out, playing poker, dancing. At the same time.
What I'm Reading:
I'm finishing Temptations of the West: How to be Modern in India, Pakistan, Tibet and Beyond. (I just got back from India.) And starting the Food and Wine Lover's Companion to Tuscany. (That's my next trip.)

When you go to Tuscany, either check out the Amarone (a Valpolicella relative from nearby Verona), or don't.
Why to do it: it's big, it's rich, it's beyond red; it's purple; it's made via the infamous "noble rot" method; it's likely you'll find incredible bottles (and carafes) there for a pittance compared to the ransom you'd pay here.
Why not: you might never come back . . . you might devote the rest of your life to discovering every possible nuance in a bottle of Amarone; you might discover it's the one thing on the planet that takes your mind off thick, crispy bacon (the kind you probably can't get in Italy); you might marry a vintner and forget all about 'Burque; you might become a hopeless lush and spend the rest of your days in a rich, purple stupor . . . wait! Are these the reasons for or against?
