With an authoritative voice and a distinctive kick-you-in-the-gut grittiness, I was saddened to learn that one of my favorite blogs has closed up shop…at least for an undisclosed period of time.
Katie Gomez Pizzuto, aka Gonzo Gastronomy, said her wordless farewell to the wine blogging community on August 6, 2012. The ever-feisty, graduate of the “Groucho Marx School of Thought” and admirer of Hunter S. Thompson, penned some of the greatest piss-in-your-pants rants I’ve ever read on any wine blog. To this day, I still scratch my head in bewilderment that from 2008-2012 Katie never-ever received even one Wine Blog Award for her in-your-face, thought-provoking, original shit. Now that’s just cray!
I sincerely hope that this is just some Morgan Freeman death hoax because I, for one, am not ready to say, “This is the end, beautiful friend…”
