Christmas Extravaganza!
‘Twas 10 days before Christmas, and all through Pete’s Bellevue,
Not a creature was stirring, they were buying, and here’s a clue:
They’re going to an event, a tasting extravaganza to be true,
And finding many tasty libations that go with their Holiday dinner, that will do!
A tasting not to be missed for those who are who’s who!
