Hello, friends…Here’s this week’s Sunday Seven in wine, food, lifestyle, design and travel!
I’m a big fan of the ~$15 weeknight bottle of wine, as I know many of you are! (A necessary evil after a long day of work.) This link has 10 affordable weeknight wines to add to your rotation. There are some well-known names like Alamos Malbec ($14). Also, one of my lesser-known favorites, South Africa’s Secateurs line, made the cut with their red blend ($17).
This 10-acre island sits on Lake Mahopac just north of NYC and holds not one, but two Frank Lloyd Wright structures. The larger one is in his signature style—organic integration of the site’s natural rock, built-in furniture, and cantilever decks. Also included is a private beach, dock, and a rooftop helipad to commute to the city in just 15 minutes. If you’re buying at $12.5m, hit the link 🙂
Loving this ski house with mid-century vibe sprinkled throughout! A San Fran couple bought this slick, somewhat masculine, newly built condo in Park City, Utah—but their designers knew it wouldn’t satisfy its intended purpose as a welcoming family ski home. They wanted to make it “happy”—and after an upfit inspired by the textile prints of Josef Frank, it certainly is.
Last year, Skytrax, the industry standard, named Singapore Airlines, Qatar, and ANA All Nippon as the top three airlines in the world. In a second approach, industry insiders, influencers, and frequent travelers were asked for their own opinions in categories of “best”—from best domestic, best low-cost, best long-haul, best airline food, and even best airline Instagram account!

I’m not going to lie, I love a frozen pizza when you need pizza right now. This article ranks the best 12 frozen pepperoni pizzas. To keep it fair, all the taste testers tried the pizzas without any knowledge of the brand or price. If you’re a pizza lover, take note the next time you hit the grocery…
How cozy and fun does this look? Hit the link for cooler-weather cities that offer rooftop spots that are welcoming and warming, all winter long. Guests can bundle up in robes and blankets and enjoy table service in heated igloos, like the one pictured at the Godfrey Hotel in Chicago. Sign me up for a hot toddy! (Ok, and maybe on a week slightly warmer than this past one!)
Although I don’t have a real fan affinity for either team playing today, I did live in LA, so I’m pulling for the Rams over the Patriots. And I can definitely get on board with the food aspect of the Super Bowl. This link has a collection of 23 great ideas if you need something to make for tonight!
I’m off to begin the slow-cooker chili right now…I hope everyone has a wonderful and relaxing rest of your weekend!
