I have an inkling that it might also have something to do with the late shipping date? (Or are you guys just taking a long holiday vacation over there in California?) Most likely the result of the terms of the closeout/auctioning off of goods.
You ever hear of the band “the Yoopers”? They have a song that one of my friends always sings. I think the chorus is “Free beer, free beer, that’s my favorite brand…”. He only knows the chorus. I want to find the rest of the song and send it to him.
While I agree with you, there is something exciting about opening a wine and not knowing what to expect. It allows me to formulate my own thoughts without the crutch of using someone else’s tasting notes. While that excitement can be quickly distinguished by a bad bottle of wine…Well…It has been outweighed by the good stuff I’ve had!
I went in for one set pretty much blind on this one. Should be fun!
Hahaha- Same dilema! I just bought a frame too! Now I have to figure out who is going to split this offering with me from the Dallas area- Frame is also for a gift grrrr-
Answering your question, just go to your account and it will show you all of your purchases. If you go into your account on the woot page it will show you purchases of woot if you go to the wine.woot page account it will show you the latter-
SOME GUYS LIKE THAT BOTTLED BEER
SOME LIKE IT IN A CAN
SOME SAY A KEG’S THE BEST BEER
FOR A REAL BEER DRINKING MAN
EVERYONE HAS THEIR FAVORITE
BUT ON ONE THING THEY AGREE
THE GREATEST BEER IN ALL THE WORLD
IS THE ONE YOU DRINK FOR FREE
FREE BEER FREE BEER
THAT’S MY FAVORITE BRAND
IF I DIDN’T HAVE TO BUY IT
ITS THE BEST BEER IN THE LAND
WARM FLAT FUNKY
IT DON’T MATTER TO ME
THE GREATEST BEER IN THIS WHOLE WORLD
IS THE ONE YOU BUY FOR ME
THE BOYS AT THE BAR WERE BETTING
ON WHOSE BEER WAS THE BEST
I DIDN’T HAVE A NICKEL
SO THEY CHOSE ME TO MAKE THE TEST
THOSE FIFTEEN DIFFERENT KINDS OF BEER
WERE WONDERFUL TO ME
EACH ONE WAS MY FAVORITE BREW
THE BEER I DRINK FOR FREE
OUR OLD PAL NUDSIE GOT MARRIED
HE WAS TRYING TO SAVE SOME BUCKS
HE WENT OUT AND BOUGHT THE CHEAPEST BEER
AND BOY IT REALLY SUCKED
BUT AFTER YOU CHOKE THAT FIRST ONE DOWN
THE REST GO EASILY
AS LONG AS YOU REMEMBER THAT
YOU’RE DRINKING THEM ALL FOR FREE
Thanks! Apparently I had too much wine last night or not enough coffee this morning to figure that one out by myself!
As a former Dallasite – now a Rockportian – an envious shout out to Dallas and the Dallas Wine.Woot group (love your meeting locales & wish I could attend some) & wondering if we can get a Wine.Woot group going down here in the Rockport area?
Love it! I’ve always said my favorite brand of beer is OPB – other people’s beer!
Reminds me of that old drinking standard . . .
Dough, the stuff I buy beer with
Ray, the guy behind the bar
Me, the guy I buy beer for
Fa, the distance to my car
So, I’ll have another beer
La, la la la la beer
Tea, I’d rather have a beer
Which will bring us back to Dough, Dough, Dough Dough . . .
Your color square is your total purchases on all the woots (Woot, Wine.Woot, Shirt.Woot, etc.).
And if you hover the mouse icon on the square under your name at the very top of the woot screen, it will tell you your total woots (sometimes you have to log out to clear the browser cache so it registers correctly. several of us had to do that after the last woot-off.) Note: Not the one to the side of your post, but the one to the left of “today’s woot” link.
I received a case of Ty Caton last winter that basically sat in single-digit temps (outside) between Saturday and Monday. The case showed up with bottles at about 26F and totally fluid wine.
As vaaccess said, as long at the corks are intact or you can’t see leakage, you’re fine. If the foil caps are spinnable, that’s a pretty good sign that nothing’s happened (but a ‘stuck’ cap doesn’t mean anything bad HAS happened).
If you were planning on laying them down for a few years, I would do that and then have a party and open them all at once. If you’re really freaked that something went wrong, open one in a few days and check it. There are worse things in this world that drinking a nice bottle of wine.
I’m in Houghton (well, we’re building a house in Tapiola, but that’s gonna take awhile). So you live in the fancy part of da UP, eh?
It’s nice living at the end of the earth, now that we’ve got broadband and wine.woot! It’s hard to find good wine up here, but there’s a surprising amount of “snob beer” for sale in Houghton. Where do you find good stuff (wine and/or beer) in Marquette?
Are you saying that because you purchased 1 current offering from woot.com, you were limited by woot to buying just 2 sets of this wine.woot rather than 3? I don’t know if I’ve ever tested that, but it doesn’t sound right to me.
I was wondering why my square seemed “stuck”. I kept giving woot my money, and it seemed like I was getting no woot-cred for it! If more Haven goes up later this week, I will likely achieve Wooter Level 6 (levels start indexing at level 0?)
