Making time to treat yourself is important for any busy parent. Working, raising children, and the normal grind of life will wear you down if you don't take time out to make yourself the priority. Look at the calendar and make a date for you, get the childcare arrangements squared away and get going.
And what better way to help you ease into the weekend than enjoying some wine?
Do you love wine? Do you wish you knew more about it? If you don’t know your merlot from your pinot, this week’s Great Escape is for you. Set up a sitter, grab your friends or your significant other and visit Bin 201 for its Wine 101: The Basics of Wine Tasting event on Saturday from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Tickets are $29.
Located at Annapolis Towne Centre at Parole, Bin 201 is a boutique store specializing in little known bargain wines, collectible wines and low-yield vintners. Don't know what we're talking about? Don't sweat it, that's what the event is all about. According to the website the event is described as "a look at the typical characteristics of popular grape varietals and an explanation of the terminology and
techniques of wine tasting. You will learn how to recognize the subtle and subjective flavors of wine."
