Open Wine Bottle With Shoe

Let us, for a moment, paint a quick scene: you’ve got a real hankering for wine — and you have a bottle of wine! Everything in your life is perfect. But then you realize there’s nary a corkscrew in sight, and your world slowly starts to crumble as you realize that sweet, sweet nectar is trapped in glass, leaving YOU trapped in a glass case of emotion.

Make no mistake: that’s a terrible situation. But this handy tutorial from Mirabeau Wine fixes everything by teaching you how to open a bottle of wine using nothing more than a shoe, a wall and some determination.

You might want to practice in private a few times before performing this trick at a party, because it would be pretty embarrassing if you ended up shattering the bottle and spilling wine all over yourself.

Though to be fair, that would probably be even more entertaining to your fellow party-goers.

  1. Any format, any length, whatever…

    10 points and an e-high-five to best joke in the next 20 or 30 minutes.

  2. I am going to a “wine fest” this weekend and I am supposed to bring a bottle of wine (with wine in it, its not an empty bottle) that is decorated for a contest. Only problem is, I have never decorated a bottle of wine before, and I have no idea what to do! Soooo any crafty ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks!

  3. You can also use any house key to open up a bottle of wine. What other methods could be used?

  4. What do you pack when you go away for a weekend?
    (I’m going away with my boyfriend & his family for a weekend)
    any suggestions?

  5. I would like to make a wine themed Birthday cake. I’ve seen the cakes with the bottles and they look complicated but I am up to try it. I just haven’t been able to find any clear recipes on line. Does anyone know of any??

  6. Im going on a week long cruise over the summer for my honeymoon and I heard they don’t let you take on your own alcohol. My wife and I were planning on having a few drinks but I heard the ones on the boat are way over priced. Anyone have any tips for sneaking some Liquor on board?
    Just to have in the room of course, before we go out for the night.

  7. how is your day :)?

    I just cracked open a bottle of wine (not tequila, that’s for weekends), sent the kids down the road to their friends house(there mother was working all day, no big deal) while I eat the dozens of cookies we baked today. I am really excited for my husband to come home from work so I can take his paycheck and buy some new outfits.

  10. i absolutley love my bf and we have been together for 3 great years. i work 6 days a week and on my one day off i get sooo bored. him and i usually just sit around and get on the computer and watch tv. i want to find free/cheap fun things to do so we aren’t just sitting around on the couch. we both work extremly hard so we need to find something fun to do on our one day off. another problem i usually have is that i work the next morning at 5 am so its hard to go out at night to do stuff. i just am so tired…so help! what are some fun/cheap things for him and i to do?
    p.s.- we live in the country, not in a city lol.
    i just feel like i know so much about him, i don’t know what to ask you know? cuz everything i think about asking i already know that answer…i love him so much and i know this is how the relationship grows to become nothing…i guess its hard because we are both so tired and we just don’t really have the energy to do anything lol but we need to find it!

  11. Okay I saw this picture and the idea was wonderful. It was a large antique style wine rack with built in boxes for the wine bottles- open ones and about 40-45 boxes. It looked so unnique. I am thinking of using the same idea as I have a long narrow passage in my new apartment that could go waste if we didnt use it as a shoe rack. I also want to put a bench there to sit down and remove your shoes.
    I saw some contemporary ones at target and walmart, but they dont have that feel What I do like about this one is that it has a drawer on top for socks etc

    Let me know what you think about this whole idea.
    Our apartment is one 1 BR and about 700 sq feet only and we have about 30-40 pairs of shoes ( I know-vain couple!:-)))

  12. I want my main to kill people without leaving any DNA or any evidence for the matter. She usually resorts to using a blade, a big one, but occasionally uses a gun.

    Later in the novel, she steps up to more evolved methods of killing…like torture. I want to focus on how she can leave no evidence when she kills the victims with a blade or a gun.

    Her name is Grace. She is a serial killer.

    Thanks.

  13. Besides dinner and a movie.
    My fiance and I are sick of the normal dinners.

  14. I will be flying to Vancouver in three days. It’s my first time flying so I have no idea what it is like and no idea what I should wear. Are planes usually kept cold? Warm? Should I wear jeans and a sweater? Jeans and a t-shirt? Maybe layers so I can peel if I get hot?

    And should I take a blanket, in case I get cold?

    It’s going to be a 16 hour flight.
    I rather take my own small blanket. I have a slight germ phobia.

  15. i absolutley love my bf and we have been together for 3 great years. i work 6 days a week and on my one day off i get sooo bored. him and i usually just sit around and get on the computer and watch tv. i want to find free/cheap fun things to do so we aren’t just sitting around on the couch. we both work extremly hard so we need to find something fun to do on our one day off. another problem i usually have is that i work the next morning at 5 am so its hard to go out at night to do stuff. i just am so tired…so help! what are some fun/cheap things for him and i to do?

  16. I’m not enough of a wine drinker to know what to do now…I’ve put the corkscrew in the cork three times, kind of trying to break it up. I think I’ve pulled a muscle in my back trying to pull it out (don’t have a great corkscrew, because I never thought I’d have need of one). What do I do now?

    I WANT MY WINE! lol
    Well…I ended up with wine from my chin to my waist, and all over the cupboards, but I finally got my glass of wine! Thanks and cheers!

  17. My boyfriends parents are very wealthy and getting me something big for Christmas (my bf said.. Something expensive like a guess coat 200$) or whatever… And I have no idea what to get them? I am getting my boyfriend shoes he wants valued at 180$ !! And I don’t want to break the bank with another 200$ cause I still need to get for my family…

    I was thinking for his parents get a basket with a bottle of wine, and wine glasses with spa stuff like body sprays, bath stuff…like bubble bath (From bath & body works) then like a cute card saying “experience paradise!”

    Or I was thinking find a couples spa thing? But those are expensive!! Help I am from Toronto too 🙁

  18. What do you pack when you go away for a weekend?
    (I’m going away with my boyfriend & his family for a weekend)
    any suggestions?

  19. I have a serious problem, my husband of 14 yrs has been involved emotionally with a female at his job. I found him writing notes to her in the middle of the night & now that they no longer work together I can’t get him to open up with me so that this situation can have the closure I need to move forward. The whole situation was extremely devasting as any of our close friends would openly admit they were envious of the closeness / relationship we shared. I just can’t seem to get past it without knowing how this could have happened but he refuses to discuss it with me. Granted we had for the 1st time in our lives together been apart b/c of our jobs 5 days & nights outta 7 & we were recovering from our seemingly healthy 3 year old being diagnosed w/ AML. I was very emotional & in hindsight very withdrawn at times but if thats indeed “why” he felt the need to develop this inappropriate relationship, why can’t he just say that? I try not to think about it all but I can’t stop myself??????

  20. Well i guess i’m pregnant, now i need to know how to tell my fiance, I’m gonna wait till i get tested at the doctors but how do i tell him? open a bottle wine, kiss him than say it? Please Help!
