Fall is officially here and there’s no better way to sport jeans, boots, and nicely tailored jackets than with the Bacchanalian Society’s Fall Gathering. Honestly, without the all-knowing Bacchus, I’m not sure how I’d keep track of the changing seasons.
On Thursday night hundreds of us gathered to kick off a particularly stellar weekend for Cincinnati. For those of you who have attended one of the Society’s events, then you know there is never a dull moment or lull in the small talk.
I was surprised, however, to be welcomed upon my arrival (a mere 45 minutes into the event) to the police tasing a drunken man. This comes at a particularly apropo time, with headlines such as “Is new Taser policy good?” splashed across the local news just last week.
While those jolts of electricity were sure to spoil Mr. Charming’s buzz, we didn’t let it ruin our own. In fact, the event had a record turnout for The Bacchanalian Society.
I’m sure you know by now that each gathering focuses on a particular wine varietal and benefits a charity. (Drinking for a good cause is our favorite kind of drinking.) This time around we sipped on Sauvignon Blanc and all proceeds benefitted The Junior League. Afterwards, we headed to the Righteous Room for a little more sophisticated boozing.
Although we didn’t know it at the time, the Fall Gathering was our “pre-grame” for the eventful weekend that lied ahead: Oktoberfest, FotoFocus, Clinchmas, and a celebratory Bengals win. Onward and upward.
