Hello and Happy Day to you! I was missing in action yesterday because I went to Wine in the Woods, a big wine tasting event in Columbia, MD. And I partook in perhaps, a few too many tastings and was forced to take the night off.
But I had a blast! Actually, it seems everyone was having a blast because this place was packed. Wine, great weather, greasy food booths with funnel cake and sweet potato fries = have I died and went to Heaven?!
The event is great – you buy tickets to get in for about 30 bucks and get a wrist band (DD tickets are less). They give you a glass when you get in and then you walk around sampling wine from all the booths (and there are a lot!).
By the time we got there K&M had been there for a while, so we made an effort to catch up fast. I gladly took two glasses of wine from a delicious bottle they bought to “even the score”.
After many rounds of wine tasting, hanging out, “cheers-ing” with strangers and more wine tasting… Ben and I made our way to the Mall for food. I actually wanted sweet potato fries and funnel cake (dinner of champions) but they ran out of the fries! Boo.
We were both buzzed and looking for grease when we got to the Mall food court. Ben said it was like eating diner food at 2am, except it was mall food at 6pm. It did feel weird being at the mall so desperate for fries and shakes.
Then, I somehow managed to buy a cookie when Ben was in the restroom. It “disappeared” as well. In my defense, I ran 10 miles in the morning before drinking copious amounts of wine. I wasn’t of sound mind or body and ate like it was my last day on Earth!
It was for the best that I didn’t post after all that wine and food because I don’t know what I would have written! I mean, I know this blog isn’t exactly Ulysses, but adding alcohol to the author would be bad news.
Yep, bad news just like me dancing in public after finding a second wine glass for samples.
