Dr. Vino: Cocktails and coolers
Welcome to the 2008 James Beard Awards, where I’ll be leading you on the drinks beat. As the nominees are filing in on the red carpet, I sneaked up to the Loggia, laden with drinks and currently devoid of people. Since it is 95 degrees and 95% humidity, everyone is in the AC where the bubbles are flowing–Pellegrino bubbles, that is. More from the loggia after the ceremony.
