“There’s always time for a glass of wine”

"There’s always time for a glass of wine” is a saying that has been printed on many signs and wall plaques. Brooklyn’s Poly Prep had “But it’s always time for a glass of wine” as a verse in an alumni song, as printed in the Brooklyn (NY) Daily Eagle on March 3, 1909. “ALWAYS time for a glass of wine” was posted on Twitter on April 17, 2008.

The wine signs began appearing everywhere by 2011. “‘There’s always time for a glass of wine’- amen to that! Our popular wine sign is now back in stock!” was posted on Twitter on February 1, 2011.


3 March 1909, Brooklyn (NY) Daily Eagle, “Poly Prep Alumni Hold Monthly Reunion,” Picture and Sporting Sec., pg. 2, col. 3:
A time for a glass to the buried past,
The years that have taken wing --
But it’s always time for a glass of wine
When this is the toast we sing:
REFRAIN
Come drain a glass to good old Poly Prep!

There’s always time for a glass of wine. Stop what you are doing, find a friend, or two, or more, and open up a bottle you have been saving.
