Tequila & Representation

During a tasting at Urban Grape DC, I finally got to meet the owner of TCapri Tequila, Tiffany Capri Hainesworth. “Tiffany’s path led to artisan tequila distillers, Tequila el Tepozan SA de CV, and Master Tequilero, Carlos Padilla.” She is the first Black woman in the world to own her own tequila brand. She’s also from …

Cold chillin inside an igloo…

I’m not going to lie, last Saturday was pretty chilly. But part of the #DMVTravelCrew ventured out anyway. We made plans to meet at La Vie (a restaurant at the Wharf) for brunch to test out their new outdoor igloos. The views from the Penthouse were stunning. Even with the wind howling. Brrrr!! Once inside …

During brunch, you can select two Tapas and one Postre (dessert) for $38. Other dishes are available á la carte or for a supplemental fee. Every dish …

Getting crunchy…

Sometimes you need something crunchy & delicious and totally not healthy. I found that in my Roaming Rooster wing order. Great crunch with a little heat — I tried medium heat; not too bad. I think as I’ve gotten older, my heat tolerance has changed. I can’t do super spicy foods or I will feel …

A Tasty Detour…

On Thursday I took a quick detour into DC that led me to Cane on H Street. Cane is a family-owned business run by Chef Peter Prime and Jeanine Prime (a brother and sister duo). It’s based on popular street foods in Trinidad & Tobago. I almost ordered the entire menu! After I calmed down, …

Storytellers…

Before: So, I decided at the last minute to come to Story District’s Breaking Bread “Stories from Celebrity Chefs and Industry Insiders” by myself. Story District’s mission is to “build community, promote empathy, and enrich an understanding of our common humanity through the art of autobiographical storytelling.” At first, I wasn’t feeling it but thought …

I finally made it…

So cool to have visited the only Guinness Brewery in the US! Located in Baltimore County in the old Maryland Distilling Company space, roughly 40 minutes from Washington, DC. During our guided tour ($15pp), Rebecca, our dope tour guide, told us that one of the reasons this location was chosen was due to the great …

I am WOMAN, Hear Me Pour…

On Monday, a ride over the bridge led me to Palette 22 in Shirlington for the Maker’s Mark event “I am Woman Hear Me Pour.” This event was held to celebrate Margie Samuels, co-founder of Maker’s Mark. Throughout the evening, Rachel Ford, a Maker’s Mark Diplomat, told us not only did Margie come up with …

Back at it again…

Recently I went to happy hour at Vinoteca with a few Winos. This past Sunday, I ventured back because I had a really old gift card and finally found it (Thanks Tanisha!) – thank goodness it still worked! Happy hour is chill but brunch is on another level! You can order bottomless mimosas and people …

Pour me the good stuff…

What a fabulous tasting at Domaine Storage DC (thanks @atastyjourney). We had the pleasure to listen to Benjamin Leroux discuss his delicious wines. He knew at age 13 that he wanted to be in the wine industry. I don’t know what you were doing at 13 but that’s serious wine love! Wine seems to have …

Tasting wine vertically…

Last week, I went to another Zachys DC tasting. Upon entering, we were greeted with a generous pour of Laurent-Perrier Rosé. Cathleen Burke-Visscher, Founder, of Wine Works & Co., guided us through a fabulous tasting from Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou, Chateau Fourcas-Borie and Chateau Lalande-Borie. It was so cool that we got to do a vertical tasting …

Keep going and trust your gut…

Initially, I was supposed to take my Certified Specialist of Wine (CSW) exam (check out my first post, “Just Start Already”). Went on vacation to South Africa and got behind in class/studies. Never caught up. I decided to postpone it. I knew I couldn’t pass without seriously studying. Was that the best decision? For me, …

Popping all the bottles…

If you have read my posts before then you know I am a fan of bubbles. At all price points! So my friends and I decided to “taste the stars” at Calvert Woodley’s Champagne and Sparkling Wine tasting. For bubbles to be called Champagne, it has to be made in the region of Champagne (France). …
