Eventful November 08: Future of Web Design to Chocolate Show to Wines of Languedoc

Seems like November 2008 will be an Eventful Month for 'Serge the Concierge'.
It kicks off with the Future of Web Design Conference on Election Day (November 4th) organized by my friends at Carsonified.
The day concludes with a Phizzpop design contest/ party.

On Sunday, November 9, I will spend a few hours at the Chocolate Show.
I noticed that for this first edition in their new digs at Pier 94, there is a sizable Italian contingent.
In 2008 the Chocolate Show runs side by side with Cook, Eat, Drink also known as Tastings NYC.
You can get combined tickets for both events.

After a short breather, I will head to Fig and Olive Fifth Avenue for a Tasting of Languedoc-Roussillon Wines on November 12.

The press tasting will be followed by another one for the general public that same day which will double as a fundraiser for Share Our Strength. Tickets can be purchased via Local Wine Events for $28.50 per person.

Thankfully all these are taking place in New York so all I have to do is hop on the train.

Cor.kz, Wine on your I Phone

Oct 29
If not for the Pho List, I might not have found out about Cor.kz, one of these many programs designed for the I Phone and created by fellow phoster Jim Goodman and a few good souls. Well, even though technology moves in a fast and furious way, you cannot yet drink wine straight from your I Phone. What it does or at least claims to is give you access to information on some 530.000 bottles...
