Wine On The River,a hugely popular venue on the Shelby Street Pedestrian Bridge in Downtown Nashville is a great place to sit back and watch the glam girls in stiletto's and cigar toking gents graze up and down the bridge with their what...empty Riedel glass. What's up with that! My best friend and I have attended this event for the last 3 years and we arrived around 3:30 and started our ascent to one of the 4 lines marking the get on your mark, get set....go, and our first disappointment was a sold out Riedel wine glass booth. Everybody knows that all the wine snobs purchase a Riedel to sip the "Juice of the Gods" and stroll around sniffing into the wide neck; sipping and whispering about all the "sights" that have you wondering if it is not grown ups Halloween! I don't mean that in a bad way as I actually took home a few pointers myself. I learned new uses for cemetery wreaths as they look good on top of your head, Aunt Edna's big white sunglasses are coming out of the drawer and onto my face along with a tube of red lipstick for each lip; remember, if God didn't make them, Collagen created them and Botox stopped them from smiling but they were pretty! And then.....it all came to a screeching halt! Now, don't get me wrong, some of the booths still had wine, but I am a sissy wine drinker unlike my Sonoma Valley Girl who has wine running through her veins. So I noticed I was starting to hear over and over, we are out of all the sweet ones and then.....it happened; there were entire booths that went unmanned and empty bottles stacked like toy soldiers on the tables and then.....came the whining. Yep, that was me and my Sonoma Valley Girlfriend who paid $50 a piece for our tickets and left the bridge-stone-cold sober! Am I the only one who noticed? I know there were other Nashville Realtors that attended!
