Sipping In God’s Square Mile

Blog: The Chicks Uncorked While the old adage “Location, Location, Location” might be the number one rule in real estate, it also rings true when it comes to our own personal joy.

Tybalt, Bad Boy In Tights

Blog: The Chicks Uncorked As I reminisce on the men of consequence in my life, while sipping a strong glass of mead, I recall a gentleman who looked very good in tights. When I was young, the Franco Zeffirelli film “Romeo and Juliet” made quite an impression on me. The girls I saw it with... Continue Reading →

The Wine That Made Me An Adult

Blog: The Chicks Uncorked My love affair with the fermented grape began as a child. When we had spaghetti for dinner, my parents would splurge on a small bottle of Chianti, complete with the then-ubiquitous straw basket.

Blog: The Chicks Uncorked Trie: City Lights & Sea Fever Trie loves New York. In December 2018, I accepted a job in Washington DC that would wrestle me from the clutches of the Midwestern college town cocoon I’d long overstayed. The job aligned with my passions, and I’d been thinking for the last 10 years... Continue Reading →

Unencumbered With A Sip & A Smile

Blog: The Chicks Uncorked Sure Cupid may call at any time, but the old standard, “You’re more likely to be hit by lightning than get married over 40” still hangs in the air.
