Du Fu (also known as Tu Fu, as in this video, 712-770) was one of the greatest poets of China, a master of the rich poetic era of the Tang Dynasty. "The Eight Immortals of the Wine Cup" should be considered our poet's "roast" of his friends, a remarkable group of poets and intellectuals of his day.
Notes: The "Wine Spring" was a legendary spot that supposedly put forth a natural flow of wine . . . a Fountain of Youth perhaps? The "Sage" and the "Wise" were common names for two types of wines during the Tang era, and the dual meaning was often exploited by Chinese writers.

As we raise our glasses this evening . . . let us remember those who have made this year and this moment possible.  Happy New Year to all . . . and may it bring us peace.
