Welcome to a new year! We hope you're finding lots of light throughout these darker winter days. Let us help with a few fun things on the internet. Enjoy!


- This soup is warm as a hug and only requires four ingredients!

- This month our somm, Leslee, is teaching a wine class in Minneapolis that digs into two hot topics: wine and wellness, and why shape matters when you choose a wine glass. If you're in the Twin Cities, you should sign up! Seats are limited and all attendees go home with 4 FREE RIEDEL WINE GLASSES. Excuse me.

- I love the reality show Selling Sunset, but as a new-ish mom, I was confused by the portrayal of one character's postpartum journey in the latest season. So was writer Doree Shafrir, and she writes about it here.

- Why can't I stop thinking about these mustard-hued high tops covered in sherpa?!

- Get your daily dose of true crime with the podcast Sweet Bobby. It delves deep into a real-life and decades-long catfishing scam in the U.K. VERY...

During this nutsy political week we looked for the levity in things. Please enjoy these bits of joy and have a great weekend!

FRIDAY FAVES - 1.15.21

- Artist Sari Shryack makes juicy and whimsical pop culture oil paintings that totally speak to the 90s kid. We're talkin' lip gloss and Lisa Frank vibes. I especially love this pastel mall scene!

- The new movie Save Yourselves! is a hilarious/satirical/suspenseful story that follows two extremely millenial young people as they try to unplug from the world for a week. So good and so unexpected. Find it on Hulu!

- If you're already sick of red wine (wait, what?!), check out 18 creamy, comforting white wines to get you through the winter. Our somm, Leslee, says she could drink the Ca' Lojera Lugana Verdicchio just about every day. Yum!

- Get something fun on your calendar! Leslee is leading three virtual wine classes over the next two months. They're affordable, easy to get to (ha!), and a great way to discover something new. Check them...
