The Bob in Retirement

by Bill Spohn » Wed Jun 12, 2019 5:07 pm

A friend of mine, Sid Cross, had dinner with Robert Parker recently in Baltimore. They had a nice talk about the early days of the wine newsletter and had large format bottles from Bob's cellar. Thought you guys might be interested. Pic from a IWFS newsletter.

Good for Sid! That's a score. Bob looks pretty good.

And FWIW, Bob at least never used to drive himself. I presume that has not changed.

Not bad, Bill! I shouldn't be surprised that Sid and Bob are connected.

Any recent sightings of Sid's brother?
