Maybe it’s the insane humidity, or maybe it’s our collective, near-primal thirst for them, but we’ve got Margaritas on the brain. Ideally literally on the brain, as in clutched next to our heads, calming our cranial burn with that cooling, Triple Sec-laced Margarita chill.
Fairly or unfairly, thoughts of bourbon and the summertime make us think about a woozy southern drawl, quite possibly coming out of the mouth of an older gentleman who’s sitting on a deck chair in seersucker, finishing up an old tale while the sun sinks into the horizon like a melting cherry popsicle and…wait, what […]
White sangria—the lesser step-cousin of the classic no longer. In fact, we dare say sangria is going to be the drink of the summer season. Then again, we also declared jellies were making a huge comeback this summer and so far, nothing. But the sangria we’re pretty sure about. We admit, insofar as a fruity […]
One thing that unites “dog people” and “cat people”—being “wine people.” Which is why we’re doing a feline follow-up to our catalogue of the 14 Winery Pooches To Melt Your Heart. Now where a winery dog might reasonably be expected to perform some particular function on the winery or vineyard grounds—keeping the vineyard manager company, […]
Farmer’s markets are finally up and running here in the northeast, but things aren’t fully swinging yet. There’s still a few weeks to go before the first Wait, What The Hell Am I Going To Do With $48 Worth Of Strawberries?! day of the season; for now we’re just all milling about shrugging at bars […]

You tend to consume it alongside some less healthy stuff like cheese and crackers. People are wild, however, persevering despite these […]
Shaking a cocktail already looks cool enough (or terribly embarrassing, and dammit why didn’t you start doing push-ups last fall like you said you would?). But even if not everyone can look like T Cruise in “Cocktail,” we can still look relatively great, provided we pick out an awesome cocktail shaker.
Usually when we receive a cocktail, we hastily remove whatever’s sitting on top. It’s an obstruction to immediate imbibing. And possibly a facial hazard. Fortunately, the days of haute mixology hit us and lots of bars tossed elaborate garnishes and (sadly) those awesome paper umbrellas in favor of something more elegant, even austere. But there are […]
And you thought wineries couldn’t get any better…Meet, the winery dog. AKA vineyard dog. AKA informal mascot, pest control, guest greeter, and general keeper-of-things-cool. A lot of wineries have them, for reasons practical (killing moles that dig into their soil) and adorable (‘nuf said), and we wanted to celebrate them. Because, well, dogs. Turns out […]
