A Weekend in Savannah

Oh Savannah, what a quaint little fun city you are. Last weekend Andy and I went to Savannah, Georgia to visit Andy’s brother who lives down there.

This was my first time in Savannah and I really enjoyed everything it had to offer. Savannah is a small city with a big history. It is said to be one of the most haunted cities in the US! Because of it’s age and history there are a ton of cool little restaurants, bars, and inns lining old cobblestone streets along the Savannah River.

A Day in Long Island Wine Country

Vineyards are one of my happy places.  There’s just something about them.  They’re beautiful, peaceful, and produce one of my favorite things – wine!  I am even lucky enough to have two beautiful vineyards in my own home town in Connecticut.

So when I learned that there is a whole slew of vineyards on the east end of Long Island, it quickly moved to the top of my summer bucket list.

Coming from Connecticut it was super easy to catch the ferry from Bridgeport to Port Jefferson, New York. From Port Jefferson we drove East for about an hour on Route 25A to get to the beginning of North Fork Wine Country.  North Fork Wine Country refers to a few different towns sprawling with farms and vineyards…a total contrast to the dense and compact Nassau County on the Western part of Long Island.

Our first stop was an organic market to grab some cheese and crackers – an essential when vineyard hopping.

It was the cutest little barn with fresh produce and even local cheese.

Our first stop was at Kontokosta Winery, the furthest East of the Vineyards and one of the only ones with a waterfront view.

This winery just opened last year.

The inside was bright and open.  The staff did a great job of really educating us about each wine.   Continue reading

What I Ate Wednesday #3 – Weekend Eats

It’s hump day! I figured I’d stick with my What I Ate Wednesday posts because they’ve been fun to write.  Thanks Jenn for hosting!  This week I decided I’d give you something extra yummy to read about and post what Andy and I indulged in over the weekend.

Walrus and Carpenter is a southern inspired restaurant in the Black rock section of Bridgeport, CT.  It has a rustic feel inside the restaurant.  As soon as you step foot in the parking lot you can smell the smoker seeping into the air.

They have an eclectic variety of small plates and sides,  great craft beer, and unique cocktails.

For our first small plate we got something that we’ve eyed before.  A waffle grilled cheese with bacon.  So good! A little too big.  Good thing I had the cave man with me.
