SO happy it’s the weekend. After a lot of stress and hard work, we finally had our office holiday, ahem, post-holiday holiday party last night at Bourbon.
The party was a huge success (a far cry from last year's night of complete debauchery). But after a long day of work yesterday and then a long night of party, I’m very much looking forward to visiting my bed this evening, so I can attempt to engage in at least a little bit of fun these next couple days.
For DC/MD/VAers looking for something to do this weekend: Paradise Springs Winery is having their official grand opening this Saturday. Enjoy some wine and a little musical entertainment courtesy of The Winn Brothers.
My friend Beth and I attended the soft opening last weekend at the 19th-century log cabin, renovated 50 years ago by a protégé of Frank Lloyd Wright. The roughly 40-minute drive out was surprisingly well worth it. And the flight of eight vinos was amazing from beginning to end, made all the better by our surroundings - the house’s dimly lit cellar bar.
But what really did it for me was spending the day in a quaint little cabin in the woods, with some good company. A great escape from the sounds of the city.
I suggest you check it out. And perhaps bring a date. It’s too cozy to go alone.
Happy Friday all.
