Today is my birthday, but I had yesterday off so I celebrated then. Maybe "celebrate" isn't an accurate description of what I did. I didn't leave my pajamas, I marathoned The Lord of the Rings (extended editions, of course), ate Blue Coast Burrito for lunch, and indulged in several glasses of Black Box Malbec. It was exactly what I wanted/needed.
Boxed wine has come a long way from the check-red-or-white Franzia. Several companies are completely devoting themselves to boxes, like Bota Box and Black Box. The liquid bladder inside keeps air away from the wine and thus, the wine stays fresher, longer. Also, cardboard is much cheaper/easier to deal with packaging-wise than glass. So I say, bring on the boxed wine!
