Winning Wine on Random Tuesday


This pic just won me 2 tickets to The Grand Tasting this Saturday in downtown Tampa. Last week the Tampa Bay Wine & Food Festival posted a contest on twitter seeking vino photos, so I figured I'd play along. My husband and I will enjoy food & drink from 45 bay area restaurants and "beverage suppliers" on the Tampa Riverwalk. This casual event's eclectic musical mix includes everything from bagpipes to steel drums to the Patel Observatory's School of Rock band. Should be great fun! I'll be sure to share some pictures.

If you are in the area this weekend and have the munchies there will be several foodie events, including Friday night's Southern Charm Gala (black tie optional), Casino night, and silent auction - plus seminars on Saturday. For more info or to purchase tickets, visit http://tampabaywineandfood.com. Maybe I'll see you there.

One thing I love about Random Tuesday is that it is perfect for sharing tunes when you miss Musical Monday! Right now I'm listening to Freelance Whales.

After a fairly unproductive summer I'm slowly getting back into the swing of things. Last week I dropped off my artwork for the Tampa Museum of Art's Five By Five event in October. On the 18th this arty party will be full of fun folks buying original art, with each piece priced at only $25. All works measure 5" x 5" and the buyer only finds out the creator after purchase. For more info check out this earlier post or click here to buy your $10 ticket in advance.

I'm playing with new pieces for a few local shows over the next month & will pop back with info and pictures soon. (Can't share the 5 x 5 here until after the show.)

Right now it is time to feed the family. Decided to hit up my pinterest which has been languishing lately. Tonight we're having Martha Stewart's rosemary meatballs, doctored with a few more herbs and extra lemon zest. Do you have any fave Pinterest recipes that you've tested? If so, please share - I'd love to check them out.

Got to run. Hope you are off to a wonderful week & wishing you a creative day!
