Mutineer Magazine Launch Party tonight in Hollywood

subheader_magcover“Greetings,” began the email from Alan Kropf, editor of Mutineer who I met at the Wine Blogging Conference in October and have run into a few times at various wine tastings in the LA area.

“Mutineer Magazine has gone National, and we’re having a hell of a party at Falcon Hollywood on May 18 to celebrate. The evening will be hosted by Zane Lamprey and feature an incredible beverage tasting with wines, beers, spirits, sake, soda, and more.  Please come as our guest, we’d love to have you.  Here is a link to our current issue:


Alan Kropf, Editor in Chief


Of course, I said YES! So momentarily I will be heading to LA  for The Mutineer Magazine National Launch Party in Hollywood.

Mutineer Magazine’s National Launch Party

Mutineer Magazine’s National Launch Party will bring to life the vision that the magazine tries to capture within its pages. People, culture, and fine beverage will come together at the renowned Falcon Hollywood for a memorable night of fine beverage tasting including wine, beer, spirits and non-alcoholic drinks.

Mutineer has partnered with the fine people at AIDS/LifeCycle as a Community Sponsor to support the upcoming eighth annual AIDS/LifeCycle bike ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles. Last year’s ride included 2,500 cyclists and raised approx. $11,600,000 for vital AIDS services and increasing awareness.

Hosted by Zane Lamprey

As host of the cult sensation “Three Sheets”, comedian Zane is constantly being told he has the best job in the world. That job is to travel around the world… and drink. Now in its fourth season, Zane has been imbibed in over 50 countries, including: Taiwan, Russia, Tanzania, New Zealand, and Tahiti. As if that wasn’t enough, Zane is also the host of “Have Fork, Will Travel” on the Food Network, where he travels around the world and, yes, eats.

Playboy, May 2008: “Three Sheets just may be the best travel show ever.”

Music by Hunter Lea

Hunter Lea of Mono in VCF will be spinning live at the Mutineer Magazine National Launch Party. Mono in VCF’s debut record was released in summer of 2008 and co-produced by Lea and Martin Feveyear, who’s previous projects include R.E.M. and Queens of the Stone Age. Lea’s genre-hopping taste will provide a soundtrack to the evening that features obscure 60s & 70s grooves to create a futuristic, space-age atmosphere as the perfect compliment to an evening of tasting.

National Launch Party Vendor Spotlight: Kasteel Rouge

First up, J Vineyards. We’re pumped to have J pouring their ridiculously awesome wines. I had the pleasure of visiting the J Vineyards winery with the Beer Mutineer during the 2nd “Mutineer on Tour”, and was very impressed with their operation.

The sparkling wines are second to none (word on the street is that they’re pouring their Rose at the Launch Party, I’m not 100% on that though), and the Pear Liqueur is liquid sex, and one of my favorite after dinner beverages. The Pear Liqueur also pairs magnificently with late night conversation, and I find my guests often have a taste for the liqueur as well.

For more on J Vineyards, check out this post from December about our stop off at the J Vineyards winery in Healdsburg.
