retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Today is the final MNB of 2010. As is the custom around here, we’re going to take a little time off to catch our breath, sleep a little late (though not tomorrow morning, since I’ll be at Stew Leonard’s at 6 am picking up filet mignon and trying to avoid the crowds), go to a bunch of movies, and just generally recharge the batteries.

I hope you’re able to do the same...or whatever it is that makes you happy...during the next week or so. Most of all, I hope you will be safe, and have a great holiday - whatever you believe in, and however you celebrate.

Our Christmas wine, BTW, is going to be the 2007 Director’s Cut “Cinema” blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Cabernet Franc and Petite Sirah, from Francis Ford Coppola.

(One of the Christmas wines, anyway...I suspect there may be a few other bottles opened...)

MNB will be back on Monday, January 3, 2011, for the beginning of what we trust will be an eventful, energetic, and, yes, even prosperous year for all of us. In the meantime, the MNB archives will be open, as always.

Slainte! And Happy Holidays!
