Finding Peace During and After Election Night

Red and wihite wine pour on wood backgroundIt’s finally here. Tomorrow, the most contentious Presidential election of our lifetimes finally — mercifully, some would assert — will come to an end.

One might say that Thanksgiving is coming 16 days early this year.

Whichever side you’re on, I hope you’ll get out there and exercise your right to vote — if you haven’t already done so.

My wife and I took care of our obligation last week, as did my wife’s daughter (Makayla) who, at age 20, is taking part in her first Presidential election. I’m pretty sure we all voted the same way, but I also believe in the sanctity of the secret ballot.


With all that’s going on this month, it can be easy to forget about or feel overwhelmed by all that needs to be done to start planning the big feast. Between now and then, I hope you’ll check back here often, as we’ll be sharing some tried-and-true wine-pairing suggestions as well as some out-of-the-box thinking on the topic.

I lived in Chicago for 13 years, and the saying there during each election cycle was, “Vote early and vote often.” Now that I live in Nevada, which is considered one of the swing states, I’ve been hearing a lot more than that this year as the candidates have been visiting often.

Like most Americans, we’ll be tuned in to the election coverage tomorrow night, waiting to see how this all turns out.

And to show our patriotism, I’ll be drinking a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon (red), the Mrs. will be drinking a glass of Riesling (white), and Makayla will be drinking a bottle of Gatorade Glacier Freeze Frost (blue).
