pairings 2013

 

Happy Valentine’s Day y’all!

You may have noticed that I didn’t create a Valentine’s specific post this week. I figure there are enough images of heart shaped cookies, cupcakes with red and pink icing, pizza with heart shaped pepperonis, and heart shaped carrots for soup – yes really. I’m not making this up - that I don’t need to add to the clutter. Just visit Pinterest if you want some of those tutorials.

As for restaurant recommendations for dining out on Valentine’s Day – I don’t have any of those either. Honestly, I could not tell you the last time I dined out on February 14th. Nope. Not interested. Instead, my husband and I usually choose to have a special dinner on some night shortly following the big day.

And that’s why I’m here today. I’ve got an awesome idea for those of you that are like me. That idea is Pairings! While it’s a week away, it’s still in the month of February, so if you ask me, it’s a perfectly acceptable way to celebrate your love for your honey. And, of course, there’s wine. Lots and lots of wine. And that’s something to celebrate in and of itself, right?

Pairings by Nashville Wine Auction

The Factory at Franklin
Liberty Hall
230 Franklin Road
Franklin, TN 37064

Cost: $125/person, Casual Attire

At Pairings, you’ll have the opportunity to taste over 70 different wines, and all are $30-$150 bottles being poured, so we’re talking quality stuff here. There will be awesome Silent and Live Auctions full of cool trips, luxury items and dinners/tastings (Josh Habiger cooking for 14, Lisa Donovan making dinner for 10, Matt Bolus doing a lunch for 22 people just to name a few!) that will raise money to fight cancer in Middle Tennessee.

So, all that said, I encourage you to buy tickets and participate in this special event.  Of course, you might first want to enter for your chance to win 2 tickets to the event- my Valentine’s gift to you!

    My partner, Amara, would join me if I won. We both love many of the same varietals of wine, though I’m pretty confident she can drink a healthier amount. :)

    I think I’d take someone who likes wine less than me, just so I have someone to drive me home after I sample all those wonderful wines!

    Without a doubt, I would take my fiance! We are getting married in a couple of weeks (the week after the event) and I know we would have a great time. Wine is actually one of the main themes of our wedding. I think this event would a great way for us to relax and enjoy some time together in the midst of our last minute wedding preparations!
