Scope a Day in May: Challenge Accepted!

Scope a Day in May: Challenge Accepted!

Catchy title huh? But what is a “scope” and why am I going to do one every day in May?

I want to share my experiences with as many people as possible! One of the ways to do this is through a live streaming platform called Periscope! I am challenging myself (and many of my friends) to provide interesting and approachable content on Periscope once EVERYDAY in the month of May!

Use the hashtag #ScopeADayInMay and let’s follow each other’s journey! It’s only a month, and who knows what you’ll learn about social media, your audience, and maybe even a little something about yourself!

Cheers! – Jenn

Blab About Wine: Dining Out Wine Buying Tips & Tricks

Blab About Wine: Dining Out Wine Buying Tips & Tricks

Do you know how to order an enjoyable and affordable bottle of wine while dining out?

Questions, concerns and conversations continually circle around ordering wine while dining out! To tell the truth, I STILL feel intimated by the extensive wine lists I see at some restaurants! However, there’s a few basic rules I still follow to make the experience affordable and enjoyable!

Learn how to be a better, smarter wine buyer while dining out by joining the Blab About Wine conversation tonight 4/21 at 6PM EST or tomorrow 4/22 at NOON EST !

Cheers!

Horses, Wine & PERISCOPE TOMORROW

Horses, Wine & PERISCOPE TOMORROW

The unofficial kickoff to wine festival season is HERE!

The Maryland Wine Event, Decanter is the first event I typically attend every year! The term “Decanter” is a fun play on words in wine (Decant) and in horse racing (canter). Put them together and you have 20+ Maryland Wineries with over 100 different wines to taste! The event is a little closer to home at Laurel Park in Laurel, MD and I am excited to spend the day with the horses and of course, Maryland Wine!

Over the last couple of days I’ve been chatting about wine events just like this one with Stub from Cork Envy (P.S. you’ll see him again at Decanter). If you missed these Blabs, please go check out the replays here! Many fond and and sometimes “memorable” stories come from attending Decanter. With the beautiful weather forecast, this year promises to be no different!!

I am not above working the event (because it gets me in free 😜 ) so I will pour wine from Far Eastern Shore Winery for half of the event (11AM-3PM). If you’re at the event PLEASE stop by and visit me! Then I’ll grab some food, track down Stub and Periscope at 4PM EST while I taste the first of this year’s wine/vintage!

Find me @WineAntics on Periscope  and join the horse racing & wine tasting tomorrow afternoon, 4PM EST!

– Cheers!

Jenn!
