Archive for 10000th post

It’s not easy to predict ahead of time what I will be posting in the coming month as many restaurant visits happen with a certain spontaneity. This month though, there are a couple of things I do know for certain.

First, sometime during the month of May we will have our 10,000th visitor to the South Jersey Wine & Dine Blog. For that upcoming milestone I have all of you to thank. There is little point in writing if no one is reading, so I appreciate that you make the task worthwhile. I have mentioned on a few occasions that “comments” on articles posted are always welcome. In an effort to both encourage those comments and celebrate our 10,000th visitor, anyone who posts a comment on the day we actually hit 10,000 will be in a drawing for a bottle of wine. It might not be much of a drawing since we average less than one comment per day so your chances are pretty good. It also will not be a GREAT bottle of wine, so don’t get too excited. It will be something I would drink myself. Let me say that comments that fall into the “SPAM” category will NOT be counted. WordPress has thus far blocked 2,800 SPAM comments. They look something like this “Hey dude, great stuff here.” and they will be signed, in an effort to have folks click on their commercial site. Don’t click on that, it leads nowhere.

Also, during May I will post again on our upcoming trip to Napa/Sonoma in October. I will tell you what resources I use to prepare and how they can help you, not just with a Napa visit, but with virtually any vacation you might be planning.

May is a very busy month in our family so it’s difficult to say how many restaurants will be reviewed. I do know that we will be at Trattoria¬†Milano (Gerry B.’s choice and located in God’s Country-Talford, PA) and a Northern Liberties spot that I am anxious to try called Sonata.

May brings great weather and it’s a wonderful time to experience the joys of wine at one of our many excellent BYOB’s, Don’t forget to stop here to read about many of them in making your choices.
