Something To Wine About

2005_05_billdaley.jpgChicagoist isn't exactly sure when Bill Daley, the Chicago Tribune's Food & Wine reporter, launched his new column "Daley Drink," but we're certainly glad that the Trib pointed it out to us today at their Web site.

Admittedly, when Chicagoist wants to know anything about wine, beer or liquor, we ask one of our best friends who happened to spend years in the trenches of wine and alcohol sales. We really know nothing about alcohol, other than we like it a great deal.

Most people are probably the same or they just fake it better than we ever could. So Daley Drink provides an outlet for those of us who'd rather have the answers but still feel embarrassed because we really don't understand how the hell some people can say they smell "essence of chocolate" in certain wines.

Chicagoist plans on asking for the destination of The City's Best Mojito, mostly because Chicagoist has declared it the Official Drink Of Summer and we need to find who makes the best one.

What booze-related question do your have for Daley?
