This weekend was pretty darn epic! I spent some quality time with two ladies I have been friends with since jr. high. The fact that our friendships are still alive after all of these years is pretty impressive.
To kick off the weekend I received an amazing package from my Weekend Update co-host, Dana. She's the BEST! She sent me a "Keep Calm and Drink On" book and sticky tabs to take note of my favorite drinking quotes.
How sweet is that?! It totally set the tone for a great weekend.
Let's start with Friday night. Tiffany, who you may recognize as the wonderful woman behind Polka Dotted Cats, and I had a 90s reunion - the Summerland Tour. Sugar Rey, Everclear, Gin Blossoms, Lit, and Marcy Playground all in one night at The Greek Theater here in LA. It was a bit cheesy at times but it was fun and I'm really glad we went!
Then on Saturday, our friend Kathrin joined us for a surprise birthday gift to her - a trip to Agua Dulce Winery near Santa Clarita for some tasting and lunch. Before we headed to the winery we stopped at Saddle Ranch on the Sunset Strip for breakfast. I guess it's customary to give out HUGE orders of cotton candy to guests so we had fun playing with the sugary goodness.
Finally we headed out to Agua Dulce where we did a wine cellar/tasting tour. It was really cool! As we talked about the wine making process we were given 4 tastes along the way. Then we were able to sample the wines again before deciding which one we wanted to enjoy with our lunch (which they provided).
Lunch was a sandwich, potato salad, and cookie and we were really impressed. It was pretty good! After completing our meal we did another tasting for free then decided to check out the animals on the property. I fell in love with an adorable mini horse, baby goat, and ram, all of which let me pet them for several minutes. I wish I'd gotten pictures with them but I didn't :(
If you live in the Southern California area and want to go wine tasting I highly suggest Agua Dulce Winery. Just let them know you want to take advantage of their Groupon deal: $20 a person for a tour, tasting, and lunch. Great value!
