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: Michel Laberge: How synchronized hammer strikes could generate nuclear fusion - Michel Laberge (2014)

Our energy future depends on nuclear fusion, says Michel Laberge. The plasma physicist runs a small company with a big idea for a new type of nuclear reactor that could produce clean, cheap energy. His secret recipe? High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure. In this hopeful talk, he explains how nuclear fusion might be just around the corner.

TED: Sarah Lewis: Embrace the near win - Sarah Lewis (2014)

At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?

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" positioned 50,000 km from a telescope to enable imaging of planets about distant stars. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."
