Brew at the Zoo

Beer festivals are fun. But add a fun location and/or entertainment to the festival and it’s even better. Cue Brew at the Zoo. Beer, wine, cute and awesome animals, and live music. This past long weekend was perfect weather and my friend came to visit from Nashville. We had a fun group and I even ran into more friends once we got there! The lines were a little long for drinks, but it was still perhaps my favorite event in Atlanta so far. I would highly recommend it! One new beer/wine festivals down – 1 to go!

#76. Stock the Bar

Hosting parties is one of my favorite things – so I was thrilled to host, along with 4 other wonderful ladies, a Stock the Bar party for the lovely bride and groom-to-be, Meghan and Jonathan (and at the same time cross of a last minute 101 item)!  We had a beautiful host home in Nashville, decorated with wine bottles and candles. Add delicious food from all the hostesses and you have a party!

It was a great night to celebrate the couple, spend time with friends, and meet new friends! Congrats Meghan and Jonathan!

#49. Beachaven

I love wine – so it’s only fitting that I have multiple wineries on my 101 list. This past weekend, we braved the record high temperatures and drove the 45 minutes to Clarksville, TN to visit Beachaven Winery. It is a beautiful vineyard (maybe ignoring the lovely view of I-65), with rose bushes blooming at the end of each row.

We took a tour and they explained the process of making wine – which I had never heard before – and also showed us the champagne cellar and explained that process! Although it was a little hurried through the outdoor parts, it was really interesting! We also did a tasting – able to taste whatever wines you wanted. They have a pretty large selection of wines – whites, reds, fruit wines, and dessert wines. I bought a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc since I drink more whites in the summer. Since it’s hot. Have you deduced yet that it is HOT here? 🙂
