Tuxedo White – Finger Lakes


Wines are my best friends lately. I look forward to Friday nights to have a glass a wine and awesome food because one is getting sick of college food with soda.

Tuxedo White – Finger Lakes


This is a smooth semi-sweet wine with peach and apple undertone flavors. It’s one of my favorite wines from this winery.

Price: $9.50

Food Pairings

This wine pairs perfectly with desserts, soft and hard cheese and cured meats.

Goose Watch Pinot Noir Brut Rosé – Finger Lakes


In the middle of packing, moving, and packing again, I forgot where I put the few bottles of wine I left to enjoy. I finally found them last week and on a good time. I was literally brain-dead last Friday after a long week. I must admit that school is taking the life out of me.

As soon as I got home on Friday, I opened the bottle, and HB and I drank it all. It is so good.

Goose Watch Pinot Noir Brut Rosé – Finger Lakes


It is crisp and light sparkling wine. It has strawberry and cherry flavors typical of the Pinot Noir grape. It’s by far my favorite sparkling wine.
You can buy it at Penguin Bay Winery from the Finger Lakes Region in Upstate NY.

Food Pairing

This wine pairs perfectly with a light to mild fish dish and desserts.

Restaurants To Try: Picnic Garden


Have you ever watched the movie “What’s Your Number?” There is a part in the movie where “disgusting Donald” tells “Ally” he wants Korean barbecue. Every time I go to Picnic Garden, I instantaneously remember the movie, because, of course, you need a grill in the middle of the table to do a Korean barbecue.

I first visited this restaurant with HB’s family. I am meat eater and Picnic Garden suits me well. They have all kinds of meat and fish, spicy and non-spicy. They also have vegetables and fruits like onions, corn and oranges. You cook everything on the grill right on your table. There are some cooked dishes and salads available too.

Let’s not forget about the corn tea. It’s included in the price, but you have to request it. Overall, the food is great and the service is great. To me, that’s a fantastic combination.
