Last week, my friend had her twenty-third birthday. We all decided to try something new for the special occasion.
If you are from Tuscaloosa, I’m sure you have walked past Carpe Vino wondering what it is or how it works. Well friends, next time you walk past, go in. If you are sitting at home on a Thursday or Friday and wanting something to do, dig through your couch cushions and scrounge up $10. Carpe Vino puts on a wine tasting from 5:30 to 8:00pm on Thursday and Friday.
HERE IS THE BEST PART:
They have wines for EVERY price range.
Not only does Carpe Vino have amazing wine, you can bring your own food or order from one of my T-Town faves conveniently located next door, Epiphany Farm 2 Fork.
Our group brought a beautiful cheese tray, compliments of our friend Mary Ann. She also brought one of the most amazing cakes I have ever tasted. Edgar’s Bakery, located in Northport, created a beautiful vanilla cake with vanilla icing, decorated with chocolate. There is no better way to celebrate a birthday than with a big, beautiful cake!
Last topic on the agenda today is FASHION. And not just any ole fashion, CHEAP FASHION.
Chandler MacWilliam, creator of Shotguns and Seashells, and I decided to get all dolled up for the birthday party. We ended up both showing up in outfits from TJ MAXX. Let me just tell you, every city in America has a TJ MAXX, and every person should shop there. They have amazing finds and amazing deals.
For more details on Chandler’s outfit, check out her blog here:
In the mean time, I URGE you to go to Carpe Vino and Epiphany Farm 2 Fork. Don’t forget about Edgar’s for dessert. They are all amazing establishments for people who love wine, farm to table cuisine, and people with a sweet tooth! AKA- me. Below are links to all of the places mentioned in todays post!
Until Next Time, CHEERS!
