I think it's fine, with the samples I got we'll be more than ok. The potluck idea got scratched for this time around :) Just bring a smiling face. :D

Just wanted to say thanks again to my fellow So Cal people for making Saturday a very nice, informal get together. It was both great to commiserate with people who understand and also educational.

Yes, I think it was an awesome success and it was so helpful to talk to other Celiac's face to face. Thanks to all of you for coming, and thank you Merika, for the use of your house.

It was so great meeting everyone who came!!!!!!!

I was at the WeHo Whole Foods today and on a whim stopped by their bakery dept and they said *drum roll* starting today/tomorrow they will be carrying 19 NEW gluten-free fresh bakery items - breads, pies, pizza crusts, muffins - NINETEEN! So stop by and support them :) And happy eating :D

Whole Foods is on the corner of Santa Monica Blvd and Fairfax in West Hollywood.

Yes, thank you for hosting, Merika!

I hadn't really had a chance to write about what happend after getting home, yet, but have a few minutes now to do that...

I got home, and put up the free samples we'd split up, and put the bottles of Bard's Tale in the fridge, and one on the counter so I could drink it. Not two minutes later, I heard a crash-y type noise in the fridge. When I opened the fridge door, I discovered that one of the bottles had burst, breaking the "shatter-proof" shelf above it, and sending beer and glass shards everywhere! I took the remaining bottles out of the fridge, worried about temperature shock, and started emptying the fridge. About five items out of the fridge later (a whole two minutes), one of the bottles I had taken out of the fridge popped, spraying beer and glass shards over the kitchen. My husband came out at this point to see what was going on, and the bottle I left out to try burst on the counter right next to him, spreading beer and glass shards across the remaining clean portion of the kitchen! We've been finding glass shards everywhere (near the front door, across the living room, etc.) for the past three days! (No injuries though... everyone's just fine! :-) ) It took about the same amount of time for the beer smell to vent!

I gotta say, though, my kitchen and fridge haven't been this clean in ages! :-)

The last remaining bottle is out on my balcony. I'm scared to open it. :o

That is absolutely insane. I'm so sorry that happened. I've never heard of beer exploding. I had a soda explode once because I put it in the freezer and forgot about it but that is just nuts.

The ones I drank had some head on them but my god!

Please tell your husband I didn't do it on purpose! He probably thinks your Celiac friends are crazed beer assasins. I'm just glad everyone is ok.

Ack!

Hehehe... Maybe it was all the time I spent with the Zen monks at my yoga retreat, but eh.... it's all good. :-) I do plan on trying that last bottle... But will probably open it with a big towel wrapped around it. ;-) hehehe...
