    Mint Juleps are served in a collectible glass, at the Derby. Throughout Churchill Downs, people (usually men) walk around hawking these drinks like people hawk popcorn at a basketball game. People work hard to collect these glasses! Some people must have every one ever made, and will pay big money to make their collections. Of course, you can get some kind of gold-plated julep cup for a contribution of a mere $1000, which goes to some kind of charity.

    They had a silver monogrammed mint julep cup on the Antiques Roadshow a couple weeks ago..there was another one at home. Made by a famous silversmith and old, they were worth 1,000 or so. They do take their mint juleps seriously. I had one once-served in a silver julep cup of course, but I wasn't impressed.

    MRD must be something in the air because my week sounds almost as busy as yours. 4 concerts to go to this week and I know work will be calling with something extra they need.

    If I weren't such a long drive away, I'd go! Heck, I'd even bring the wine. (What goes best with greens and cornbread? Petit Syrah is great with barbecue . . .)

    Sweet. I haven't been cruising in years!! It was such the thing to do when I was in high school.

    I imagine that some of these really old timers that will be playing the blues probably had their share of MD 20-20 in their day.

    I can honestly say that I have never had wine with greens and cornbread, either we are drinking Lynchburg Lemonade or beer. And a lot of that Lynchburg Lemonade is drunk with out the lemonade part.

    So that is a good question. I joined a wine tasting group through meetups.com and I'll have to ask that question at our next meeting.

    Hey, ya'll, get Unk to pick you up in his ride and come cruisin down here for some greens, cornbread and blues music. Ellen's bringing the wine!

    I think I've finally got all of my computer and on-line problems solved. We went out and bought a laptop and went wireless. It's going to take some geting use to, but I already love it!!!

    Okay -- just to be on the safe side:
    Bogle Petit Syrah to go with any barbecued meat. And I think a nice dry or semi-dry Riesling would go well with greens and cornbread. I'm thinking Kendall-Jackson Vintner's Reserve Dry Riesling. Both are delicious, under $15, and cover both the red and white bases.
