YEAH, BUT WHO'D WANT TO BE THAT GUY?:

Faking It With Alton Brown (New York, 10/3/11)

How to fake it as a wine connoisseur:

Look at the wine list and narrow in on something like the Brunellos. Then look for a year that's missing, and say, "Do you have the '84?" And the waiter will say "no." And then they might recommend a different year, but you should reply, "Yeah but that year was too 'wet'" and they'll agree because they won't know the difference. And soon the conversation will get going and you're safe.
