Bonus Pictures:Opening a bottle of wine without a corkscrew

This past weekend, when our friends Sol and Curtis came by to see our new place, we pulled out a bottle of wine but realized we hadn't yet unpacked a corkscrew.

Wine bottle + actual screw + pliers = homemade corkscrew! Wine for everyone!

I love your improvised corkscrew! Necessity is certainly the mother of invention. Good luck in your new home, your new kitchen - I look forward to hearing about your adventures as you settle into your new life.

I've used this method successfully & unsuccessfully. The unsuccessful time resulted in the 7 inch scar on my boyfriends forearm!

Licked, thank you for the well wishes! We're discovering all sorts of differences in the foods that are available (and not available) here in California, versus New York.

And Erin, I am officially banning the husband from using this wine opening method on the basis of that scar.
