Poppy's Roadside Dinner here tonight, June 24th
It will be a great night to come out and enjoy the serenity of the winery without the noise of the cicadas. Please ignore the tree that fell over in the latest storm as you come down the driveway. You are more than welcome to take a limb or two on your way out. If you haven't had Poppy's comfort food you are missing something wonderful. He is also bringing one of his homemade desserts, Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheese Cake. You will need a ladder to eat it!   Check Poppy's full menu online.

Live - Music Gestapo's I'm Playing You!
 
Update:
This letter was received recently. Considering I haven't had anyone playing at the winery I found this entertaining. Can't wait to see what they send or do after this weekend when Evolution plays their unique and original music.

[Here is my original post] During the past year the music licensing agency BMI has been harassing wineries relentlessly to pay them an exorbitant fee to have live music at their venues. The $1,500 fee they requested is not something many of us can afford or justify. BMI is using a software program to scan website for key words like Live Music, Bands and Playing to name a few.  Just for kicks and grins I have added those key words to this posting  to see how long it is before they contact me. Here is my disclosure, "I do not allow artist that play cover songs/licensed music at the winery. Yes I believe music artist need to be paid for their art." I will report back how long it takes and the bullying response that I will get!
