On SNL, Amy Poehler always had that wild look in her eye, bringing a sparkling spontaneity to a slow show. It’ll be great to see this new baby mama trade in her Hillary pantsuit for…a skirtsuit, helming her own show.
What to tipple with this funny blonde? “Parks and Recreation” is a mockumentary set in the geographic heartland (Indiana), so howzabout a domestic bubbly: golden, sparkling, and deliciously dry. A couple easy-peasies to make your night-in pop:
Roederer Estate Brut Rosé – a smokier blonde California sparkler. Pinot Noir and Chardonnay dance gracefully here, with lots of zexy citrus and peach between the bubbles, and a finish that’ll last the whole show. ($28)
Domaine Carneros Le Rêve Blanc de Blancs – Le rêve is French for the dream, which, if you’ve only got two bucks for Charles Shaw, makes sense. But if you want to really raise the bubbles bar, this silky, modern, organic ‘white of whites’ from Carneros (Sonoma and Napa) will help create a vintage night. ($85)
