Wine lifestyle behaviors have changed drastically before my eyes in the past decade. The industry, which at times has the ability to present itself as pretentious has had to change with the times. Thankfully an ever-growing Millennial consumer base is turning the tables and is creating a more laissez-faire environment when it comes to wine […]
Immigrant, cat enthusiast, time traveler born in the wrong decade. Recently developed a strong affinity for stripes. I'm always down for a road trip, a flight to Europe, or a walk to the corner bodega.
As another Wednesday rolled around I thought about the significance of this day we call Hump Day. Is it a day where one is able to celebrate the fact that we are halfway towards the weekend? Is it a celebration that half of the week is finally over? I mulled over these thoughts as I […]
As you may have noticed, Wine Down Wednesday has taken a two week break. But don’t despair, it will make a triumphant return next week! One of the reasons for this break has been that I have been slowly trying to regain my running form after a knee injury. I have started with walking, a […]
In last week’s edition of Wine Down Wednesday I touched on the subject of change, rebirth and new beginnings as they related to the blog. As the seasons change, so will the direction of our entries, features and focus. That entry was a reaction not only to the change in season, but also to a […]
Spring has sprung with warmer weather and sunny days this week at The Daily Croissant and we could not be more excited! Spring, and Easter both mark a season of change, rebirth, and new beginnings and it’s only appropriate that this is reflected on the blog. We are thrilled to be introducing some brand new […]
Today might have been the single most difficult yoga class that I have taken since starting a month ago. At times I was out of breath, at others I felt like my femur might pop out of its socket, and at one particular point I felt like Bruce Lee in a perilous one legged balancing […]
If you follow the blog you may be aware that I’m currently nursing several sports related injuries. Yet the one that is causing me the most problems is a pain on the inside of my knee that I tweaked while skiing in Vermont. Unfortunately I injured it to the point that I have had to […]
A Summer get together, Thanksgiving, Christmas, any family function where my sister in law, Janet attends, there will surely be a bottle of Oyster Bay Sauvignon Blanc. I don’t understand her affinity towards this particular brand because to me it has always been a simple, mass produced entry level table wine. Now I wouldn’t consider […]
Spring, a season marked by the Easter, new flora, rain, and a sense of renewal; it also marks a change in wine drinking habits. Heavy lush reds are put to the side while easy drinking whites begin to take the stage. But in recent years rosé has taken the wine world by storm. Walk into […]
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you must be aware of the latest monster snowstorm that is bearing down on the tri-state area. So in anticipation of being stuck indoors all day tomorrow I decided to get a run in this evening to get rid of some pent up energy. I had planned to […]
