Cheeky! But just in case you were serious, take a look at the sticky on the Organising Offlines forum.

This year's ACPT tasting was a Taylor/Vargellas tasting. Review of the evening here.

Also, the Dow Vertical on 19-Mar-2011 was an American Crossword Puzzle Tournament inspired tasting. (2010 Sandeman, 2011 Dow, 2012 Taylor/Vargellas.) The review thread doesn't mention it, but the planning thread did.
