Friday nights are made for music. I love that many of our local wineries and bars have started hosting live performances. There is simply nothing like some great, local vibes to lift your spirit when the work week finishes.
Earth & Vine Wine Bar is one of my favorites. The ambiance is rich and inviting. The wine selection is filled with small, boutique wines from around the world. Champagne, local beers, and ciders round out the menu for all.
Charcuterie platters with salami, assortments of cheeses, and their signature roasted rosemary almonds make for a fantastic, shareable bite while listening to artists. YUM!
The experience is even more fun when you get to know the owners, Chris Wiggins and Gretchen Moshier-Wolf, who are so perfect for this spot. As they welcome everyone through the door, their smiles light up the room. In the winter months, be sure to get there early, as seats fill up quickly! In the summer, the music spills out onto the sidewalk in lovely Lynwood Center.
My favorite moment of the night is always when the two lovebirds (recently engaged) sneak off to the bar upstairs for a quick drink, or come out of the back room behind the sliding barn door where all the wine is stored and steal a kiss. Now, you know the inside scoop. Keep an eye out for these two! They are doing wonderful things and gathering talented, local artists each weekend for our enjoyment.
Stop in, have a great glass of wine, and support our local musicians. Earth & Vine Wine Bar is one of many reasons to love the Island. You will always see someone you know here. It is the best kind of Friday night muse.
