Who wouldn’t love this?

Run away to New York City for the day:  early train down, arriving just in time for a boutique Italian wine tasting, followed by the requisite walk through Times Square, a visit to the Oyster Bar in Grand Central Station, and the evening train home.

Time as a couple?  Check!

Seriously amazing wines?  Check!

Top it off with this?  Check!

    I loved it just as much as you did. Love you too

  2. I love the Oyster Bar in Grand Central. After the last portfolio tasting in the City, we ended up there as a family (a rare occurrence for us to be out and about outside of North Creek) and I was in heaven. Glad you had a lovely Mother’s Day.
