Yoga, Summer Wine + Craft Beer Tastings at Bottlerocket of Westport this June

17 May

Blogging ain’t easy, yo.  While we might have plans to only go out once or twice a week, sometimes events come up, or you’re invited to a special dinner.  And, sometimes the food or event is just too good to resist.  So, to get more tone and to be able to keep up with our lifestyle (don’t you feel sorry for us?), we began Power 90 with Mr. Tony Horton.  We’re halfway through the program and will be starting P90X pretty soon. In between that time, we’ll be building up more stamina with some running, preparing us to run Warrior Dash in September.  Rawwwrrrr!  Now, we mention this because one of the toughest (but oddly most relaxing) parts of Power 90 is the part of the stretch routine when you do yoga poses such as Upward Dog, Downward Dog, Plank, Warrior, and Crescent.  It’s amazing how tone we’ve become just from “simple” yoga poses.

Cheers! Local Wine and Beer Blind Tasting at Bottlerocket of Westport, CT

23 Sep

A while back, we told you about Bottlerocket opening up in Westport.  Yup, they’re the guys who have a fun way to organize their wines.  Select your wine by checking out the seafood, meat, poultry, treats, take-out, organic section, or any other of the themed sections in the store.  But, they also have a great beer and liquor selection, if you haven’t stopped by yet.  

They’ll be showing off some of their wine and beer on 9/27 from 7-8 with their first ever Happy Hour.  The focus?  A blind tasting of local wine and beer.  Tickets are $25 in advance (call them at 259-3939) or $30 at the door.  They’ll have some local drinks and some “out-of-towner” drinks.  It’ll be up to you in the blind tasting to see if you have a sharp enough palate to spot which are New England and which aren’t.  Think you’re up to the challenge?  You’ll definitely want to stop by, then.  Well, let’s say you’re not up for the challenge.  That doesn’t matter.  Come by any way and try some great brews and wines.  

Cheers, OmNomivores!
