Wino For The Night

by Meghann on December 28, 2008

Well the good news is I was able to sleep in to almost 9:00am this morning, the bad news it it took a lot of wine for me to be able to accomplish this. ๐Ÿ™‚

Last night Caitlin, Michelle and I headed out to The Wine Room to celebrate Caitlin’s last weekend of ‘freedom‘ before all the wedding craziness begins.

I had been dying to go to The WIne Room since I moved to Orlando back in August, but have never had the chance. I was very excited last night to be introduced to the bar. It really is a wine lover’s dream.

When you first arrive you load up a card with a certain amount of money and then pay by ounce of wine.

The wines can range anywhere from $1 for the nice cheap wines I was indulging in to $15 per ounce for wines I would never dream of trying.

I enjoyed a plethora of wines throughout the evening.

I stuck with the Reds through out the night and enjoyed the majority of them.

Caitlin ordered a flight of Cheddar Cheeses to nibble on while we drank. The red wine went wonderfully with the sharpness of the cheddar.

I ate a good 1/4 of the plate featured above.

We had a great GIrls NIght Out. We drank, we ate, we talked with guys… it was wonderful.

I was very surprised this morning when I did manage to wake up that my head was not screaming at me. I think in total I had a little over 12 oz of wine last night which is roughly 3 or 4 glasses of regular portioned wine. When you look at it that way it doesn’t seen like I went overboard.

Caitlin and I decided to make breakfast right away, to give us plenty of fuel for our planned run.

Caitlin made some yummy Whole Wheat Blueberry Pancakes

and I had one of the great Tangerines I stole from my parent’s.

With some Real Maple Syrup on the side for dipping, it was the perfect meal for soaking up the alcohol.

Now hopefully Caitlin and I are going to get our run on. We bought some cute running skirts yesterday we’re dying to try out and of course I’m always looking for a chance to play with my new Garmin. ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh man I need to find a wine bar near me! That sounds so much more fun than a normal bar. It looks like you girls had a great time ๐Ÿ™‚ You both look gorgeous, as usual.

Love the pancakes! Enjoy your run in your new workout gear!

That’s so funny, about a week ago I saw a Samantha Brown special on the Wine Room and thought, “It’s time to plan a trip!”

Let us know how you like the running skirts…they might be fun to feel girly while getting sweaty!

Sarah – that’s actually how I first heard of the Wine Bar. ๐Ÿ™‚ My friend Christie happened to be there the night they filmed it and if you watch for it, shes the red head operating the machine near the send of the segment :

That’s so cool you can try wine by the ounce. I’ve never been to a wine bar like that. I would have to say that my favorite would have been all that chedda! Love me some good cheese ๐Ÿ™‚

Caitlin’s pancakes look so light and fluffy. Perfect pre-run fuel!

That wine bar looks so cool! Wish they had something like that in Houston!
Is that dress Caitlin’s? It looks like one I remember her showing on her blog! It’s cute!

Justy – Yes that’s Caitlin’s dress. We played dress up in Caitlin’s closet before we left and I ended up wearing her dress, shoes, jewelry and purse. That’s what girlfriends are for, right? ๐Ÿ™‚

Looks fun! I was wondering – what do you do for your arms? They’ve been looking good lately.

Thanks Heather ๐Ÿ™‚ THe only arm work outs I can think that I’ve been doing lately are the push ups in my boot camp routine. I’m glad to hear they’re paying off!
