Rappers Drinking Wine
I missed Pharrell AND John Legend in Paris and cried into my foie gras about it. But there was NO WAY I was missing Chicago’s finest, Common in Paris. So, I caught his show at Le Bataclan. I know, nice right? But no wait, there’s more!
After the concert, we went to this nondescript building to meet up with a friend at her hotel. We’re in hotel restaurant chillin out, talking. In walks Common!!! He introduces himself (as if I didn’t know), and my friend introduces me as Girl Meets Glass. Rashid (it’s how he introduced himself) says, “I want to know more about wine, let’s talk about wine. Have you heard of Prisoner?” After I pick my jaw up off the floor, ‘Yup, I’ve heard of it. What other wines do you like?” Convo went on for a few moments, and then he got a wine list and asked me to order him something. *flatline*
He gets a Chassagne-Montrachet. But is not really a fan, so I order him a Bordeaux and take the Chassagne for myself. He was pleased. I was pleased. And I was also a total fan girl in my head. His voice is just soooo….
If you’re looking for pics so you know it’s real…nah, that’s for amateurs and cornballs ;-)
And just so you know Rashid is a big fan of Pinot Noir, Zinfandel, and right bank Bordeaux.
