See below for our entire list of Champagne and sparkling wines with vivid, informative and at times irreverent descriptions.
But first, please ring in the New Year with us at the Pratt Whistle Blow. Somehow, this world famous event has managed to elude many locals…until now:
THE PRATT WHISTLE BLOW – DON’T MISS IT!!!
The event that literally blows Times Square away. Who wants to see a gaudy crystal ball mechanically lowered when you can stand in the middle of Pratt’s campus, drink Champagne and watch Conrad Milster, Pratt’s Chief Engineer, blow his old steam whistles from trains and ships of days long ago? At the stroke of midnight, the pent-up steam is released, gloriously screaming through the old whistles in what can only be described as orgasmic while voyeurs pop corks of their own. For Times Square to come even close, the ball would have to plummet in an earth-shattering… you know what:-)
Check out a clip of the whistle blow on YouTube. Based upon what I’ve heard from neighbors who’ve been there, this doesn’t do it justice, but it’s all we’ve got:
