Today’s Daf Yomi Question:

Beis Shamai offer two reasons why the bracha on the ‘Day’ precedes the bracha on the wine 1) since the day is the catalyst 2) the day arrives first.  When the Gemara asks from havdalah (where we see that the bracha on wine is recited first) why can’t the Gemara answer that havdalah doesn’t have two reasons (only the first but not the second) since the wine is present before the weekday arrives?
