Sometimes the invitation is in the mail, sometimes it is not.
I realized a couple of days ago that this was the case for the Gambero Rosso 'Tre Bicchieri' 2009 Edition in New York and just gave them a call today to fix that...
I kinda zoomed through it in 2008 as it was crunch time in the preparations for my Just Over 50 and Not Dead Yet panel at South by Southwest.
The 2009 selection is a little narrower, over 100 wines versus 300 plus wines in 2008.
This tasting is a collaboration between Gambero Rosso and Slow Food USA.
The New York Tasting takes place on March 6th from 4:30 to 7:00 pm at the Metropolitan Pavilion, 125 West 18th Street.
There are 2 other Tre Bicchieri Tastings in the USA.
On March 2: Los Angeles 4:30 - 7:00 PM at The Fairmont Miramar Hotel 101 Wilshire Boulevard in Santa Monica, CA 90401.
On March 4: San Francisco 4:30 - 7:00 PM Herbst Pavilion at the Fort Mason Center (between Fisherman’s Wharf and the Golden Gate Bridge on San Francisco Bay)

A great wine experience if you can make it.
To wet your appetite Scruggy compiled a list of articles on the 2009 edition.
