Tips From Traveling Friends

I have a blogging friend whom I have never met, yet our thinking trains seem to often run along the same rails — and it happened again this week.

Travel Diary: Cooper’s Hawk Winery and Restaurant

There is a full bar if you are interested in something other than wine, as evidenced by my recent choice of the Dirty Nasty Martini.
