Wine tasting & the Equality Awards

Our friends Byrne, Andy and Nate came over Friday night to spend the weekend with us. We had a nice dinner Friday evening (filet mignon, salmon and veggies), and Marc made breakfast Saturday morning (matzo brei and blueberry pancakes), and we took our time getting around, since we were going to the Equality Awards Gala that night and didn't want to make too long a day of it.

Early in the afternoon, we headed east. We stopped at an outlet store in Riverhead that we all wanted to check out. Then we continued on, stopping at the fabulous Modern Snack Bar in Aquebogue for lunch. After that, we drove to Pindar Vineyards in Peconic for some wine tasting. I took a few photos there...

And then, on to the Gala...

They clean up nicely, don't they?

Sunday was nice and relaxing, too. Andy and Nate had to leave pretty early, but Byrne stayed until mid-afternoon. Despite it being a relatively full weekend, it was over way too fast. We had a great time!

You guys seem to plan really nice weekends. The pics are great (and you have cute friends!)

What a nice winery and a great looking group of men. :)

Tobey: It was a lovely weekend. I sometimes wish we had such weekends more often, but then I think that part of what makes them special is that they aren't a regular thing.

Dan: Your nice weekend awaits! You just have to come visit! And they're not hard to look at. This is true. But we'd love them even if they weren't so handsome!

Angie: Like Dan, you need to visit, too! :)
