🧐where to wine in NYC this week
bring your wine, this is a must-not-miss Indian BYOB spot in Long Island City Adda calls itself “unapologetically authentic,” and though I might not be an expert on Indian food, it is f*😋king delicious. PRO TIP, make a reservation. Torrential rains don't stop people from waiting in line. Our fave dish - Dahi Batata Puri it’s like a delicate crispy flavor bomb. Best part, it’s BYOB! Need a wine that match Adda's flavor bomb of a menu? We recommend a wine that has acid and spice to match 👉🏽Pinot Gris.

finger lakes, ny is the #2 wine travel destination! Despite having a small presence in wine stores, the Finger Lakes, NY is an excellent wine country destination. The Finger Lakes is best known for its White (most similar to ones found in Austria/Alsace). It has equally delicious Reds such as Pinot Noirs and Cabernet Francs. We’d recommend drinking reds that are aged at least 2-3 years as they can have quite a bite when they’re young and dumb.
the government shutdown is coming after your rose 🌹National parks, federal offices, airport security lines, FEDERAL WORKERS and now booze is the next casualty in the ongoing partial government shutdown. Though everyone is prepping for their seasonal batches for spring/summer, the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau — is not approving labels for new drinks while the government is closed.😭
wine can help you shed pounds A 13 years year-long investigation and found that women who drink two glasses of wine daily, including one at a later hour, were 70% more likely to experience weight loss than those who didn't consume wine. Our verdict - CICO - calories in, calories out. #moderation 🙃
orange wine? who dis?🍊Orange wine is shorthand for describing skin-contact white wines: allowing white grapes to soak & ferment in their skins for a period of time which can add color and texture. Essentially it is making a white wine the way a red wine would be made.
📖what we're reading this week
though written in 1984 - E.B. White’s love letter to 🗽new york feels like a timeless take on its past and present inhabitants There are roughly three New Yorks. "There is, first, the New York of the man or woman who was born here, who takes the city for granted and accepts its size and its turbulence as natural and inevitable. Second, there is the New York of the commuter — the city that is devoured by locusts each day and spat out each night. Third, there is the New York of the person who was born somewhere else and came to New York in quest of something. Commuters give the city its tidal restlessness; natives give it solidity and continuity; but the settlers give it passion.”
