The Second Cup: The Social Sommelier

You've had your first cup of coffee; now relax with the second and find out what's up for the day in Lake Saint Louis.

The Second Cup: The Social Sommelier

Good morning, Lake Saint Louis!

How was your weekend? I was out with some friends Saturday night who were gracious enough to give me a few tips on wine tasting. It was very educational—fun, too—but I don't see myself spending $11 on a glass of wine very often. (Even when it has hints of chocolate and caramel, which is why I picked it out, of course!)

I enjoyed that evening in Lafayette Square, but next time I'll invite my friends to sample the vino right here in Lake Saint Louis at .

And speaking of local businesses, today we launched . The series is going to feature a lot of how-to information, but we also want to share the stories of some successful small businesses in Lake Saint Louis. You can contact me at Tamara.Duncan@Patch.com or Angela at Angela.Atkinson@Patch.com.

Today's Chowdown Showdown asks for your nominations for the best sushi in St. Charles County. Chime in! And, as usual on Monday, we have Joe Barker's column for a look ahead to prep sports for the week.

Is your family being impacted by the change in school assignments in the Wentzville School District? Will you be taking advantage of the new transfer policy? I'd like to hear from you!


Word of the Day: Sommelier (noun), a wine steward, someone who is training in choosing and serving wine. ( Thanks, Wikipedia)
