friendsfavz Web Show! Filming at The Bistro

Hi friends,

The Bistro at Hollywood Schoolhouse is going to be hosting our second filming of friendsfavz Web Show. Come join us and be a part of our studio audience on Thursday November 20th from 5:30-8:00pm. We will be featuring The Bistro at Hollywood Schoolhouse, Market Vineyards and HOTflash Designs, plus some other holiday favorites.


You will have a chance to taste appetizers at the Bistro created by Chef Frank as well as meet Cali and the rest of the staff. I came upon The Bistro one afternoon while I was out discovering new wineries and needed a bite to eat. I was so happy to see a new spot in Woodinville and was pleased by the variety on their menu. The french onion soup is fantastic and I have been back several times just for the soup!

We will be tasting Market Vineyards wines and talking about some of their new releases. Rhonda will be sharing information about the 2010 Dividend Syrah and 2012 Liquidity plus some of their other favorites.

You will also have the opportunity to view the  unique blend of painting and fused glass art by HOTflash Designs! It is like nothing else out there in the art world! The artists, Cheryl King and Cindy Duvall, will be sharing insights into their collaboration that resulted in this exclusive art form.

I hope you will be able to join us and enjoy a girls night out. Make sure you reserve your spot and RSVP to have your name entered into a special gift giveaway! You must be present to win.

Look forward to seeing you on November 20th!

New Thing Tuesday!


This week I tried a new wine, Milgrandt Vineyards Pinot, with my friend Laurie! ImageLaurie was telling me about a twitter event that she joined in on Thursday night with Sean P. Sullivan @wawinereport. He chooses a wine that everyone goes out and buys and tries on the designated Thursday night. Then he begins to asks questions to the twitter followers.

He started out with questions about the label and ended up with, is it a buy or sell. They all join in and comment on the wine and it becomes a great community event. I caught one of the tweets that night and was wondering what was up and tried to follow. I must admit that I am often baffled by twitter. I found the wine they were talking about but didn’t realize that it was a virtual tasting event. I forgot about it until we had Laurie and her husband over for dinner and she walked in with this wine, the Milbrandt Pinot, for us to taste. She told me about the twitter event and then it all made sense.

I looked it up later on twitter and saw all the chatter going on that night regarding the wine. I think the consensus was that it was a light and crisp Pinot for a good price at $13 a bottle that would go well with many foods. I am now following Washington Wine Report so I can join in the next tasting! What fun. I will keep you posted when the next virtual wine tasting event is, in case you want to join in the tasting too.
