It's A Friendly Game of Football

We are both lovers of football...Jamie prefers college, I prefer pro.  So, we have decided to have Saturday and Sunday Game Days.  We only have one TV and will be featuring our two favorite teams (Ohio State Buckeyes for Jamie, Carolina Panthers for Candace)

How It Will Work

Beginning Saturday, September 1, the Ohio State Buckeyes kick off their season playing Oregon State at 12 noon.  If Ohio State is not playing during regular business hours (11-6), you can vote on which game to show.  

The Panthers have their first regular season game on September 9 at 4:25.  Since our Sunday hours are 12 noon to 5, you will get to vote on which game to televise.  

We will be offering 10% off all day Saturday and Sunday on wines by the glass and draft beers.
Reservations still Open

What sets this trip apart from others?  We will be arranging FREE winery visits in a pre or post trip with wineries that we do business with...Lafage of Narassa, Nicholas, Tesselae  and Miraflors fame.  All have been wine club wines in the past.  There will be others, we just can't tell you which ones at this point.  Updates will be forthcoming.  Keep an eye out or ask us whenever you are here.

If you are interested, please call Lu Ann Haygood with Watercolor Botique Travel at 910-599-1603.
