You've been meaning to get to know your neighbors. (Or at least the cute ones.)
And we can think of no better way than over a bottle—or barrel—of wine.
Introducing Community Crush
, the latest brainchild from Crushpad Winery that's making winemakers
out of urban dwellers like you, one neighborhood at a time.
The entire barrel-creating process will take about a year, but don't worry, Crushpad has made it
inexpensive, low-maintenance and heavy on the socializing. (Plus, there's vino.) Start by signing up for the
by September 14 (read: do it now before it fills
up). After a wine-soaked launch party in your neighborhood, there'll be a harvest in early October (which
you won't attend, because it involves hard labor), and later a crush camp in Potrero, where you'll sort
grapes and perform punchdowns just like in that episode of I Love Lucy
Come February, you'll have the barrel-tasting party, when you and your neighbors will sample futures and
decide on a label and name.
Then in August '09, you'll pick up your bottles at the celebratory release party.
Sure beats Neighborhood Watch.
