Hello, friends…Here’s this week’s Sunday Seven in wine, food, lifestyle, design and travel!
Cheep & Cheery Winter Drinking
I know red wine is getting many of us through the last of the cold weather, so I’m linking up WSJ’s recommendations for wines under $20. This article has some good ones on it – I am a big fan of the grape Monastrell right now, as well as the Seghesio Sonoma Zinfandel listed here. There are also a couple of nice Italian varietals.
Frank Lloyd Wright Documented
There are 532 Frank Lloyd Wright structures standing in the world and photographer Andrew Pielage is on a mission to shoot every one. So far, he has shot about 50 Wright structures, and continues on as the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation’s unofficial photographer. Some of his gorgeous photos are at the link.
Live the Damien Hirst Life
The Palm Hotel in Vegas unveiled Damien Hirst’s first foray into hotel accommodations. Hirst collaborated with Bentel & Bentel Architects to design the world’s most expensive hotel room. $200,000 for two nights, the 9,000-square-foot, two-story villa is decked out in Hirst’s work, six of which are original pieces. You basically get to sleep in a private museum! Check this out – tour at the link.
How to Win at The Bachelor
Are any of you watching the Bachelor? I somehow am back season after season, even though this one is kind of boring. This link made me laugh – it focuses on all the mistakes the contestants this season are making and how they should be working the system.
The Death of Meal Kits
The tide has turned on meal kit services. As someone who has used all of these services at one point or another, I definitely see the beauty in them. No figuring out what to make for dinner, no grocery store runs — instead you have recipes with perfectly portioned ingredients delivered to your door. Sounds good right? Find out why they have lost their luster.
World’s Biggest Superyacht
A new yacht, Valkyrie, aims to be 751 feet long, a length that would shatter the current record of 591 feet. Designed by a Latvian design firm, it has a super-sleek and surprising shape inspired by deconstructivism, designed so it will stand out in a fleet. Take me onboard!
Disney World Best Eats
Since my husband loves Disney, I get asked a lot where to eat there. This link does a good job summing up the best restaurants at Disney. California Grille, Le Cellier, and Jiko are probably my top three (plus Napa Rose at Disneyland). For more of a novelty experience, I like San Angel Inn and the Sci-Fi Dine In Theater they mention here!
I hope everyone has a wonderful and relaxing rest of your weekend!
I am also still watching the Bachelor! I will have to read this article– every season someone makes the same mistake and gets sent home (i.e. trash talking another contestant to the Bachelor). Definitely checking out that wine list now that I can drink wine again!
Yay – congrats on drinking wine again!! And we should get Bachelor lifer medals. Who do you want to win?
I’m still watching too! We need to FaceTime for the finale! xo
