In today's economy I think everyone is being more frugal. I suggest you explore your back yard. Not literally. Google things in your own city. Check things out you've never done before.
I know this has nothing to do with wine. But it does have to do with food and relaxing--which are all good in my garden.
Pull up a chair and let me tell you a bit about my day. I hope you are motivated to try something different in your neck of the woods. You'd be amazed at what you find.
A few years ago we went to Circle Pottery and purchased some dishes. And today we went there for lunch. No we didn't eat clay. LOL. They've branched out and now they are Moochies Meatballs and Circle Pottery. They were even featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives with Guy Fieri for their Philly Steak and cheese subs. And that is what my husband and I had this afternoon. We're still stuffed. Very good!
After that Ron took me to a place I never even knew existed. The Gilgal Sculpture Garden. Beautiful and very unique. It is small and we were only there a little while. But talk about interesting.
You just never know what you're going to find close to home.
After that Ron went golfing and I drove the cart. No I do not golf. It's not safe for other people.
My recommendation today is--Get out there and explore your city.
