  1. I tried all three e-mail addresses and got ‘undeliverable’ messages back from Napa and NYC. I guess Paris is the only one working right now.

    • Hi Chris – I just tried it and it worked. Maybe they ran into a little trouble at launch, though it seems to be working now.

      Good luck and thanks for reading!

    • Hi Naif – Thanks for pointing it out, I’ve updated the post with the email addresses. And thanks for reading too!
