Great idea for a thread, Scott!

WS can also be Wine Searcher or World Series (in Asylum).

There's a bunch of ones used for wine names, esp. Burgundy.

LT = La Tache (In Asylum: Lawrence Taylor for old folks, LaDainian Tomlinson for young folks).
BdM = Bonneau du Martray in Burgundy, Brunello di Montalcino in Italy.
CC = Commerce Corner on the forum, but Corton Charlemagne in Burgundy.
DRC = Domaine de la Romanée-Conti (In Asylum, could be Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie).

SVD = Single Vineyard Designate (a wine labeled with the name of the vineyard. In the US, 95% of the wine must come from the named vineyard.) (In Asylum: you don't want to know. [wink.gif]) (In Math and Signal Processing: Singular Value Decomposition.)

SQN = Sine Qua Non Winery
SGN = Sélection de Grains Nobles ("selection of noble berries", wines made from grapes affected by noble rot (Botrytis cinerea). Sweet dessert wines like Sauternes.)

Don't forget "FL" --> French Laundry especially in EE --> Epicurean Exploits

Also EMP --> Eleven Madison Park

There are also other restaurants that avid diners abbreviate confusingly but I can't remember now.
ITB = "I Teach Biochemistry"

Spat .... Spatlese
Aus ...... Auslese
GK ....... Gold Cap
GKA ..... Gold Cap Auslese
LGKA .... Long Gold Cap Auslese
BA ....... Beerenauslese
TBA ..... Trockenbeerenauslese
