Vintage Flows: Unique Wine Dates for the Low

“Sippin’ on my vino
Got me cooler than Pacino
When DeNiro put together my real life it’s like CASINO
They should pay me for some B-roll
Takin’ G-strokes through the ghee-to
When rap-p-p-pid fire’s just a necessary evil”
-Jay-z, “Party Life”

Did you know that wine raises testosterone levels in men, more so than beer or hard liquor? And did you know wine increases blood flow to women’s erogenous zones, therefore heightening arousal and sensitivity? I think it’s safe to say that for most of us, nothing pairs with the right playlist like a glass or twp of wine. So whether you’re a novice or enthusiast like myself, here are some date ideas that are perfect for an intimate night with bae, or just right when you’re ready to take things to the next level with that new interest.

We all know the key to having a great date is not the amount of money you spend. It’s about the thought and time that goes into the experience. So here are 5 date ideas on how to go about it.

Winery Day Drinking: This is an easy one. Call up a local winery, make reservations and go. They are usually pretty inexpensive and always end up being a great time. My recommendation is to definitely surprise your significant other. Just let them enjoy the beautiful ride through the countryside as you make your way over. Usually, the vineyard will offer a cheese or fruit plate for your tasting which typically compliments what you will be tasting. You normally end up tasting multiple variations of wines offered there which is always a plus; and what I like is you always get the history of the winery. After experiencing everything the venue has to offer you are definitely going to want to make sure you invest in a bottle or two to take home.

Movie Theatre Wine Caper: Some of us are fine paying for wine at dine-in theaters, but there’s a cheaper way to “wining” your movie experience. Let me let you in on a secret, there’s this brand called Copa Di Vino that sells these little plastic cups of wine. There are some other brands that also share this model, but Copa is my favorite for sure. They’re very small and tend fit right in your jacket pocket or a decent sized purse. Sneak these into the theater, enjoy a romantic movie, and take movie night to living on the edge. I recommend pairing the Chardonnay with popcorn and the Cabernet with Raisinets. Thank me later.

Pizza Making Wine Tasting: It’s Friday night and you feel alright, so I say hit up your favorite local pizzeria and buy some dough. Go to the supermarket, grab some sauce, cheese, and whatever else you both enjoy on your pizza. Make sure to grab a red and a white wine as well. Doesn’t have to be too pricey either, pizza is actually very easy to pair. I would normally go Cantina Zaccagnini Pinot Grigio and a Petite Petit Syrah. Pour a couple of glasses, spread the dough, and get to building your masterpiece. If you don’t know what you’re doing, YouTube has never failed us. Set up the tablet or phone so you can watch together, and enjoy your pizza with love and some great wine.

Beach Bums and Boxed Wine: Around my parts, bringing glass on the beach is illegal. This is where the beauty of boxed wine comes into play! The thought of consuming boxed wine was so taboo once upon a time for wine drinkers, and in some circles it still is. However, I’ve found with technological advances wine in a box is far from what it once was. With that said, I recommend Black Box Wine. Take a few of these, some chips, sandwiches, and some fresh fruit and you are set. Lay out a blanket, queue something super relaxing and forget about everything. Just enjoy the scenery, food, wine, and your company.

Fast Food & Wine Frenzy: Hey, let’s say it as it is there a days when you just don’t feel like cooking. You just got off work and don’t want to go too crazy for dinner and the kitchen seems like just another task piled on the day. Many liquor/wine stores carry half bottles of wine. Grab a white, a red, and a rosé. Now it’s time for a journey, go toy our sweetheart’s favorite fast food restaurants and get their favorite items from each place. Me? I would get fries from Checkers, tenders from Chik-Fil-A with every dipping sauce possible, a Bacon-nator from Wendy’s, and an apple pie from McDonalds (because you know damn well the ice cream machine is broken). It may take some extra time and effort, but your lover will be so appreciative of that over the top gesture.

So there you go! Stop slackin’ on yo mackin’ and do something fun and creative with that special person.

  • Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed. They say this man will rule the world under a one world religion called “spiritualism”.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace. It will be a false peace for a period of time. You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things. They have their plans set in place. It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.

  • This Dot. Ave. pub is not only a second living room for much of Dorchester, but the official meeting place for Boston’s U.S. soccer supporters and several groups of English Premier League fans. Your match will be on whether you’re looking for the Celtics or Celtic FC; the Banshee has the NFL’s Sunday Ticket and all the Gaelic games. It’s a true sports bar, one that even opens early—with a breakfast menu—for some European matchups. What you’re drinking: Tom Crean’s or Guinness keeps things sessionable for the whole game. The only thing better than a glass of grower Champagne? Sipping it alongside a platter of buck-a-shuck oysters and impossibly crispy buttermilk-ranch-dipped fried chicken. Such is the fare on offer at this laid-back Inman spot, which combines a carefully curated Old World-leaning wine program—and as of early 2019, a full liquor license and cocktail list—with some seriously good small plates by chef Alex Saenz. Head to the intimate wood-paneled bar at the back of the restaurant to discover your new favorite Barolo, Bourgogne, or vermentino—all available in half- and full pours.
