Pay attention to the RULES.

You And Your Guests Are Cordially Invited To The Winter Gathering Of The Bacchanalian Society For the Benefit of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Cincinnati at Tower Place Mall
Thursday, January 31, 2008

* 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m
* Tower Place Mall
* Enter mall at street level via Race
* Fourth and Race Streets
* Cincinnati, Ohio 45202
* Complimentary Hors d'oeuvres
* $10 suggested donation per person to benefit the charity

THE RULES
The wine for this tasting is MERLOT. Each invitee, or team of up to 3, must bring 3 bottles of THE SAME MERLOT. For example, you or your team could bring 3 bottles of 2004 Fetzer Merlot. Remember, it's 3 bottles total per team, and teams can consist of 1 to 3 people.

Upon arrival, all 3 bottles will be given to the Hosts, who wrap 2 of the bottles to conceal the wine's label. The 2 wrapped bottles will have a number randomly assigned to them and will then be set out for tasting. The third bottle will be left unopened and will not be tasted or displayed.

Each invitee will be given a card with a number for each wine. The wines will be rated on a taste scale of 1 to 5. At the end of the tasting period, each invitee must write down the number of his or her favorite wine and least favorite wine. Cards will be collected and selections tallied.

The invitees that brought the top 5 favorite wines will take home everyone's third unopened bottle of wine. The invitee that brought the least favorite bottle of wine will take back his or her unopened bottle of wine.

The wine tasting begins at 7:00 p.m. so please arrive promptly. If 2 (or more) teams bring the same wine, it shouldn't matter. The rankings can still differ depending upon the temperature of the wine, how long it has been open, etc.

Please remember, teams can consist of up to 3 people. If, for example, 4 people wish to participate, they would be considered 2 teams; thus, they will need to bring 6 bottles to enter the event. This rule will be strictly enforced at the door.

PLEASE RSVP
RSVP with your name and guests' names via email to RSVP-CINCI@BACCHANALIANSOCIETY.COM

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
