Next week we plan to return to a Monday, Wednesday, Friday publishing schedule again.

It's currently Oktoberfest, by the way, and so next week Leisure Nouveau will also focus on German beer reviews! Do you have a beer to recommend? If so, please leave us a comment and we'll do our best to get to it.
Finally, we have another special wine offer for you! There is currently a clearance sale at Wine.com! Save 20% off any 6 or more bottles of clearance sale wines. Enter promotion code BARGAIN at checkout. But you have to hurry, because this offer ends on September 30, 2008!
Loyal readers, this is just an announcement to let you know that, thanks to our partnership with Wine.com, we are able to offer you a code to get one-cent shipping from now until September 12 on orders of $99 or more. Once you're going through checkout, enter ONECENT in the appropriate box, and you should see the special deal.
If you're looking for some good wines to try, look back through our wine reviews for some excellent and affordable ideas, or treat yourself to something special, like a delicious bottle of Veuve Clicquot, or if you're feeling particularly flush, perhaps even a bottle of Dom Perignon.
