#WineStudio: Ordaz Wines. I Can’t Rhyme.

So, breaking with my (probably unappreciated) tradition of trying to rhyme all my wine blog posts, this one doesn’t sound like my sixth grade attempts at poetry. Ninety percent of that has to do with the fact that the only thing I could think of to rhyme with Ordaz is spazz. The other ten percent is due to my inability to post any blogs on a reasonable timeline. I tried these wines at the end of winter, and it is now June. I’m trying, but the struggle between work life and writing is real. Continue reading

By college, I was a little burned out. I was sick of talking about amendments and lobbyists. I craved a simpler time where diving into the legal side of my country meant singing along to “I’m Just a Bill.” Continue reading

Thirsty Thursday: Electric Tea

While I usually associate February with snow, an overrated holiday I will not name, and the desire for big broody red wine, it is currently sixty degrees in Baltimore. So, not knowing what to do with myself, I made a cocktail. I wanted something with citrus, though still bold enough to remind me that this is actually winter not July 4th. After throwing a few things together, too lazy to even take out my shaker, I created what I’ve dubbed an Electric Tea.

Feeling the Greatest in Las Vegas

Just about¬†everything in Vegas is fake. The Beatles that rock out during LOVE every night at the Mirage; the statues of Caesar around his “Palace”; the waterfalls that surround the pools; even a few of the top floors of the … Continue reading

Foodie Fashion: Happy Hour Style

There are several things that my coworkers know about me: I take on those difficult customer service issues, I’m sarcastic, and I like my alcoholic beverages. Now, while I occasionally worry about the people I work with knowing I spend … Continue reading
