Hello, friends…I hope you have all had a great week! Two weeks till Christmas and it’s a winter wonderland, or at least, iceland, here in Charlotte. Here’s this Sunday’s seven in wine, food, lifestyle, design and travel.
Inside the Box
Ten very cool shipping container hotels that weld high-end aesthetics with a commitment to sustainability. I think it would be fun to try one of these out sometime!
One For Costco Lovers
I know there are some big Costco shoppers that read this blog so this one is for you! Level two Sommelier Owen Bargreen tasted his way through two dozen bottles of Costco’s Kirkland brand wine and is sharing his top 5 recommendations.
Champagne in 2018
This is a record year for the harvests in Champagne — one of the biggest crops in the last 50 years and a welcome change after 10 poor harvests. Get ready for 10 million bottles of high-quality bubbles to head your way.
Where Do We Go Now?
When it comes to where Americans choose to travel, tastes vary widely depending on where travelers reside. This survey compiled data about where people from each state travel to the most. Find out how your state reported in!
Food: Ones to Watch
A list of documentary films on food, available through Netflix. This is a handy guide of what’s good to watch — whether that means a tumultuous chef-driven story, a tale of obsession, or all of the ways our food is slowly killing us. Eeek.
Baby It’s Cold Outside
Who doesn’t love a hot boozy drink? This is a round-up of 10 warm-you-up cocktail recipes for winter, from whiskey-spiked hot chocolate and mulled wine to the classic eggnog. What better way to get into the holiday spirit?!
Small Town Charmers
I enjoyed this list of pursuit-worthy, gorgeous small towns, often reachable only by car or boat or trail or ferry. None are secret, but their very size makes them all tricky to reach in their own ways.
I hope everyone has a wonderful and relaxing rest of your weekend!
So into the link for the Food documentaries, thanks! I also love the “small town charmers” article. I went to Ko Phi Phi in 2000, before the Tsunami wiped most of it out. I would love to see it today. It was one of the best places I have ever been!
Love it! What a cool place to go 🙂 And I am into the Food documentaries myself! Let me know what you like!
Also, Puglia and The Azores are high on my list!! I am definitely going to “pin” everything in that article. Thanks for posting!
