PnP Joins The CIA

14 01 2012 -- now with wine content!

Well, sort of.  I’m happy to announce that I’ve been given the opportunity by the folks at local interest webpage extraordinaire Calgary Is Awesome ( to write a monthly wine column for the site highlighting the various facets of Calgary’s vibrant wine scene.  The CIA column will be cross-posted here on Pop & Pour, so it won’t affect my regular PnP posting schedule, but it will be a way for me to maintain a local focus with some of my posts and do my part to spread the love of wine to a wider municipal audience.  Some of the topics that I hope to cover in this PnP/CIA collaboration are write-ups of local shops and personalities, thoughts about wine tastings and events held around town and wine service at various YYC restaurants, among other things.  If you have a killer idea for a topic that involves wine and Calgary in some capacity, or if you’re in the Calgary wine biz and would have any interest in some online exposure, drop me a line at let me know.  Keep an eye out for my first Calgary Is Awesome column around the end of the month!

On a completely unsolicited basis, if you’ve never gone and checked out Calgary Is Awesome before and are a citizen or visitor of my fair city, I would strongly suggest that you give it a read.  You’ll find a ton of regularly-updated content about things to see and do, places to shop and eat, artists to see and enjoy and a whole mix of other things that make Calgary tick.  You will also, if you look closely enough, find an in-depth profile of my dog…no, really.  Hope everyone’s having a good weekend!
