MFWT Turns Two Today

Today marks the second anniversary of this thing called McDuff’s Food & Wine Trail. A lot of momentous stuff has occurred here – not to mention around the world – over the course of those two years. Yet a look back at some earlier milestones reminds me of just how little has changed in many ways, and of just how quickly time seems to have passed.

My first post ever was a short announcement about a wine and food event I was hosting. By odd coincidence, I hosted another wine pairing dinner for the very same restaurateur, though at a different establishment, just last night. (Chef Harvey dished up some really good food at Bistro on the Brandywine, by the way. Who knew duck confit would take so well to being deep fried in tempura batter?)

Re-reading the comments on my one year blogiversary posting, I realize that I’ve fallen even more absurdly behind in writing up winery profiles from my last couple of trips to Europe, even though I did manage to scratch a few off the list.

More importantly, I realize that just about all of the people who took the time to comment back then are still hanging around the Trail today. So my thanks go out to all of them, and to everyone who's reading this, for being such steadfast visitors here at MFWT. It would be tough to do it without you.

Two years down and bloggin’…. I hope you’ll stay with me for the third.

Happy birthday, MFWT! I will continue to enjoy your insights in your third year (really dug the Boutique portfolio post, btw).

Happy birthday, and looking forward to a third year. Wine, food, cycling, obscure and semi-obscure music - all my favorite topics!

David -

Happy Bloggerversary, to a dude who knows more than a little about wine, beer, food, punk rock, cycling and much else besides.

Thanks for the excellent continued efforts as well as your support along the way.

Thanks, y'all, for the comments and support. Even though it's gone by quickly, it also does seem like it's been more than two years, G.

cheers,
