Syrah This Saturday

This weeks theme for the wine tasting is Syrah, one of my personal favorite red grape varieties. With the weather warming up and the sun starting to show a bit more, the grill that’s been laying dormant in everyone’s storage should be making more of an appearance! With that in mind, we have three Syrah selections that would be perfect for any afternoon spent by the grill!

To celebrate this wide range, we have three beautiful Syrahs for you to taste this Saturday! We hope you can join us from 3-4pm at The Goat! Cheers!

Workout Gear

Sports Socks are high compression socks that Chef Colin Bedford swears by when training. These compression socks are meant to increase circulation. What makes them special? They work great AND look great! Unlike most compression socks, these come in fashionable colors and designs. "The socks really seem to reduce the stress training puts on my muscles," says Chef Bedford. "I haven't had any shin splints since I started wearing them regularly." CEP Sports Socks can be found at Dovecote... Full Post >
