Your weekend: Summer’s end

Submitted by on 1, August 29, 2008 – 7:45 amNo Comment

So this is it, the last official weekend of summer. Just a few more days until school starts. (Don’t think I can’t hear you cheering out there.) So what would be your idea of the perfect way to relax here at home, if you’re not trying to jam in one last out-of-town trip? How about a little wine and a massage?

The folks out at Farmstead Cheeses and Wines in the Alameda Marketplace host weekly wine tastings, we’ve learned, and boy are we glad to know about those. Flights are just $3, with your money refunded if you buy some wine or are a member of one of Farmstead’s wine clubs.

This Saturday from 2 to 5 p.m., Farmstead staff will be pouring five wines: a Honig Reserve Sauvignon Blanc, Spice Route Viognier, Beckman Rosé, Guigal St Joseph and Man Cabernet. And while you’re on it, the Farmstead folks say that low-cost chair massages are usually available in the shop across the way.

If you want more info, Farmstead’s website is right here. Alameda Marketplace is at 1650 Park Street.

Now all we’ve got to do is figure out what to do with the darned kids …
