Oktoberfest Addison #oktoberfestaddison

Fun time at the Oktoberfest in Addison. They been hosting the event for 30 years! This year did not disappoint with lots of beer and food to be had. It is still going on this weekend. Do check it out and have a beer or two or three...

Mallee Point Pink Moscato #moscato

Tried a new one the other day. Comes from Southeastern Australia. It's Mallee Point's Pink Moscato. Has a slight fizz to it and sweetness. Served cold with some cheese and crackers while watching the grass grow in the backyard and all was good for the Winos.

White Wine Wino gave it a Good Rating. Red Wine Wino was hesitant due to the low alcohol content (7.5%) but ended up agreeing to buy it again in the future... therefore, the Winos gave it a Good Rating (aka "will buy it again rating").

Bar Louie's in Allen for Martinis! #martinis #barlouies

Had the urge for some Martinis the other day. Went for the usual suspects at Bar Louie's... the Dirty Martini served with Olives stuffed with Bleu Cheese and the Rat Pack.

Sobieski Vodka #vodka #martinis

Heard about Sobieski Vodka from a radio commercial by Mario Lopez. Gave it a try; makes great Martinis! Came in a box set with two shot glasses and recipes for two cocktails... may need to mix up a glass or two. For now, will go with a Tabasco Martini!

CK Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon

Had CK Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon before and liked it. Had it again... Winos still liked it! This one maintains a Good Rating, as we plan to buy it again in the future. Great for chillin in the backyard watching the grass grow... 13% Alcohol Content keeps the Red Wine Wino well "chilled", too!

Top Golf's Wine in a Bucket: Stella Rosa Black and Seven Daughters Moscato #wine #topgolf

Stopped by Top Golf last night to hit a few golf balls. No wait, got there later in the evening... very nice! Decided to try their Wine in a Bucket offering choosing a Sweet Red and a Moscato from Stella Rosa Black and Seven Daughters, respectively.

All was good with enough sweetness to keep the White Wine Wino happy. Red Wine Wino was good with them save for the needed "fortification" on the alcohol content . 5.5% for the Sweet Red and 7.5% for the Moscato.

No worries thought, ordered the drink with the flashing souvenir glass shaped like a golf bag!

Christian Brothers Brandy and Manzanita Sol... #brandy

Chillin in the backyard, decided to mix up some apple soda with brandy. Went with Christian Brothers Brandy and Manzanita Sol in a 1 to 1 mix, add a little ice cube to chill... all was good for the Red Wine Wino!

Winstar Casino and Happy Hour. #winstarcasino

Was playing the slots at Winstar Casino. Mojo was off, so took a break and opted for their Happy Hour offerings - Shiner Bock on tap and Finlandia vodka shots! Felt much better having not done so well at the slots!

Village Burger and Margaritas! #villageburger #margaritas

Village Burger and Margaritas is always a good choice, especially on a warm Summer evening listening to live music in the background... plus they pack a punch, too!

Vendange Chardonnay #wineinabox

Had Vendange Chardonnay before. Cannot recall how long ago but no worries. It went well while chillin' in the backyard watching the grass grow!

Frappe Vino... #winemix #moscato #vodka

Tried something new... Frappe Vino wine mix. Added Barefoot Red Moscato and fortified it with Absolut Vodka. Tasty wine with a kick to make things all good! May need to try Spiced Rum to see how it mixes with the Frappe Vino!

Papa Lopez Mexican Cantina #margaritas

Lucked into some tasty and strong Margaritas at Papa Lopez Mexican Cantina located just off the 121 Tollway heading to Allen, TX.

We came in for lunch, then saw the "Flight of Margaritas" on the drink menu. Choose 6 of 7 flavors to make a Flight! Also, tried the Margarita with Sangria Swirl.

Reasonable prices with strong Margaritas which is the way we like them. Will be back!

Arrogant Bastard Ale

Not a wine but with a heat advisory in our area, we decided to try this strong ale... Arrogant Bastard Ale. Had it before. Red Wine Wino is always good with strong drinks and beers that have high alcohol content. This one does not disappoint!

Dominant Seven Cabernet Sauvignon

Not had this one before but the Winos liked it. Costs a little more than Barefoot and Yellow Tail wines but still a good one that the Winos agreed to purchase again. Dominant Seven Cabernet Sauvignon gets a Good Rating from the Winos!

Martinis This Round! #martini #whitechocolatemartini #tobascomartini

Martinis this round. Tried a White Chocolate Martini and a Tobasco Martini! White Wine Wino preferred the White Chocolate Martini. Red Wine Wino preferred the Tobasco Martini - spicy with a strong kick, much like the women he prefers... LOL!

Space Dust IPA at the Ballgame!

Here is one that the Winos tried... that is, the Red Wine Wino. 8.2% Alcohol Content IPA from Seattle. It's called Space Dust IPA and was being sold at the Texas Rangers baseball game in Arlington. Tasty beer at least for one of us!

Landon Winery and Nothing Bundt Cakes Wine Tasting #landonwinery #nothingbundtcakes

Fun time tasting different wines from the Landon Winery in Mckinney paired with different cakes from Nothing Bundt Cakes!

Race Trac Jolly Rancher Slushes

Not always wine drinking... this time, we were at the local gas station and noticed they had Slushes in Green Apple and Watermelon Jolly Rancher flavors! Throwing the zero alcohol content aside, the Winos give Race Trac Jolly Rancher Slushes a Good Rating as we will be back for more!

Barefoot Sangria

Here is a new one that the Winos agreed to buy again Barefoot Winery's Sangria. Note the 11% alcohol content; so the Red Wine Wino caved in easily. Luckily, the White Wine Wino's taste buds saved the day, giving the Sangria a thumbs up!

Urban Rio for Margaritas and... Shots!

Decided to have some Margaritas instead of wine the other night. Winos even had a round or two of tequila shots. Plus the huge Chicken and Steak Nachos made for a hearty appetizer while riding the tequila buzz! A favorite hangout of the Winos, will be back to Urban Rio in Plano, TX!

Grillin and Chillin This Summer!

Been having a great summer so far... grillin and chillin with Modelos, Dos Equis, and Yellowtail Shiraz!

Throw in a few vacation days in the mix, and things would be awesome!

CK Mondavi Merlot

Had CK Mondavi Merlot before... Winos are still liking it! Of course, the Red Wine Wino likes it because of the 13%+ alcohol content, too!

Not Just Wine... Beer and Liquor Too!

The past few weeks has been a roller coaster for the Winos! That said, it's not just wine at least most recently. How about Temptress Beer, Sugarlands Shine, Crown Royal Regal Apple, and Asahi Beer. End the ride with just a rocker of Crown Royal Regal Apple while watching the grass grow!

Ron Flor de Cana Rum!

Been meaning to "taste" this one... Ron Flor de Cana Rum! Bought several years ago while in Mexico. Broke it open last week; very smooth and tasty!

Comedy Night... Wine and Beer!

Comedy Night on Friday. Checked out comedian Jon Reep! Funny, funny, funny... before the show, had a beer - Irish Wexford Ale next door from the Hyena's Comedy Club. During the show a glass or two of Beringer Merlot! All was good!

Shiner Strawberry Blonde and Liberty Creek Merlot

Chillin' the other day with a new beer - Shiner in their Strawberry Blonde! Also, went back to Liberty Creek Merlot as we do prefer wine over beer... more alcohol content in wine!

Not Just Wine!

Had a fun time the other day. Had various beers and even whiskey. Not sure what the drinks were just know that the alcohol content was higher than 5%! Fun times!
