French Tour

Note: This article is out of turn with the next article. The Romano holiday dinner will be the article following this even though it occurred before the Biggs’ dinner. A few of the details of the Romano dinner are incomplete and I will get that information over the weekend. The Vine Dawg site has been redone. Now it also formats to cellphones and mobile devices such as iPads.
PS: Both, Romano and Biggs dinners were amazing and these articles should have published sooner.

The Wine Rack a Community Built

“Build it and they will come”

Back in 2010 we posted an article, DIY Wine Rack  and a follow up on the Finished Wine Rack. What I didn’t realize was that the article was being referenced and reprinted in other websites.

On our site, DYI Wine Rack is the most viewed post. In 2010: 2 views, 2011: 88 views, 2012: 488 views, 2013: 1,171 views, 2014: 1,122 views and 2015: 1,012 views. That is 3,883 views to date on our site for the DIY Wine Rack post! It does not include the other sites where it appears!

I just wanted to show you where the wine rack went. Most have linked back to the Vine Dawgs site. Some folks sell the dimensions and plans (which I didn’t include in the article! 🙂 The following have used the images, story or both:

The Vine Dawgs are a great group of guys that love food, wine, dogs and conversation. We all come from different walks of life. We get help from our wives and try to get together as couples at least once a year. Thank you Rodney for putting the group together!

Wino needs a new rack…

The place looks great! You would never know there was a fire.
