Am I the only person who has never heard of wine locker?!? Well, apparently, Morton’s has a special Wine Locker Program, which gives customers an exclusive way to purchase and store their unique wine selection. These wine lockers are extremely limited and only available VIPs. Pretty fancy-schmancy, huh?
I’m not sure a wine locker is in my future anytime soon, but it was still pretty cool to be invited to Morton’s wine event this evening. These events are typically reserved for Morton’s wine locker holders, so I felt sort of special participating in such an upscale tasting.
At the event, there was a wonderful spread of food and passed appetizers from Morton’s famed kitchen.
I tried on all sorts of goodies.
I especially LOVED the sliders! They were cooked to perfection. The meat wasn’t over- or under-done and the bun was soft and buttery. I ended up eating two over the course of the evening.
The event also featured a silent auction and a raffle.
The wine tasting featured a number of high-quality (aka fancy-schmancy) wines from six vendors: M.S. Walker, Harborside Wine Company, Boston Wine, Ruby Wines, Horizon Beverage, and Martignetti. (M.S. Walker had a single bottle of wine that cost $1,476! Obviously, I bought two. )
I tried many wines that I enjoyed, but I only took photos of my favorites.
Over the course of the evening, the venue really filled up!
When Mal and I returned home from the event, we dug into some Cookie Friday cookies from one of my favorite bloggers: VeggieGirl! I’m convinced that she is the sweetest person ever! (She also sent Murphy his favorite toy: Big Bone!)
I’m not sure who was more excited about these cookies– Mal or me. He saw the box and immediately said: “I’m having some of those as soon as you open it!”
Inside was a variety pack of the softest, most delicious cookies I have ever tasted.
Mal and I devoured two packages immediately. Yay for Cookie Friday!!!
Thanks, VeggieGirl! You are the BEST!!!!!
Now that we’re home, I’m pretty sure we’re going to dig into the cookies again for dessert!
