“Would you care for a little wine with that whipping, my dear?”
OK, so I’m sure Christian Grey doesn’t say that. But apparently, there’s a good deal of wine in the “50 Shades of Grey” trilogy – and I’m sure, a certain amount of whine as well. And that has spurred Elizabeth Miller, manager of Vintology Wines & Spirits in Scarsdale, to present “The Wines of Christian Grey” from 7 to 9:30 p.m. July 11. The ladies-only event will include an oenophile’s odyssey, hot hors d’oeuvres and surprise goodies in a let-down-your-hair atmosphere.
Say what you want about E L James’ books, but they have certainly spawned a post-feminist movement in which women publicly own their sexuality – shades of ancient Dionysian mysteries, in which women would revel in the countryside all in the name of religion?
James herself was in Westchester recently for a slightly naughty country clubby afternoon. There she revealed that her hubby proofread the manuscript and still didn’t get it. That says a lot about why she wrote it.
Thanks to James, the former Tupperware parties have given way to latex evenings. Hey, at least there’s still food.
