New Guilty Pleasure
Ok, so I think that I wrote about one of my new favorite restaurants in Brooklyn, Henry's End. One of the great parts of the meal was the wine. And when I went back the second time, they didn't have it. I was sad, 'cause I thought that I wold never get to try my new favorite wine, Benton Lane Pino Noir, again.

I looked up the website, hoping to be able to buy it and have it shipped to me. No luck. You can't buy wine over the internet and have it shipped to NY. Dang.

On a whim while walking home from parking my car the other night, I stopped into the wine store. What did I have to lose, right? So I asked... AND THEY HAD IT! Success! AND... it was only $18!! (At the restaurant, it was $35. You expect a markup, but never really know what you're gonna get). So I'm psyched.

And, I'm enjoying the end of my first bottle right now. (Yes, I bought more than one. Had I been able to carry it home, I could have seriously considered buying an entire case... at a 15% discount, no less...)

Doing my best to get myself out of my funky funk.
