Local Monday: Tate's Craft Cocktails

3/16/2020 (Permalink)

Classic Manhattan and off the menu cocktail Classic Manhattan and Off the Menu Cocktail

On Monday, 2nd of March my boyfriend Tom and I decided to explore downtown Winston-Salem and try a local bar called, ‘Tate’s Craft Cocktails’. If you look them up on Google, they have 4.6 stars and are described as a “Lively watering hole whipping up artisan cocktails in a warm, contemporary environment with live music.” They are located at 279 W 4th St, Winston-Salem, NC 27101, only a 4 minute walk from the Millennium Center. When my boyfriend and I walked in, it was filled with light and color. Although we didn’t come on a day where they had live music, the staff was more than able to impress and entertain us with their knowledge of the local area, but where they really wowed us, was with their cocktail making skills. 

We were first greeted by their bartender, Nicholas Hedge. He was friendly and very informative, explaining to us that we were lucky to come that evening, because they had $7 Classic Cocktails among other specials they had that evening. Nicholas was on the tail end of his shift and we were later introduced to Garrett Ring, another very knowledgeable bartender. I looked among the Classic Cocktails they had listed, and was delighted that they offered a Negroni. This particular cocktail has slowly become a favorite of mine ever since a trip Tom and I took to Europe a couple months ago. The Negroni is a popular Italian cocktail, made of one part gin, one part vermouth rosso, and one part Campari, garnished with orange peel  and is considered an apéritif. A properly made Negroni is stirred, not shaken, and built over ice in an old fashioned or ‘rocks’ glass and garnished with a slice of orange. The one I had at Tate’s tasted exactly like the one I had in Europe. After I had that first sip, I was instantly transported back in time and knew I had picked a top notch bar. Negroni’s are regarded as an aperitif that serves to whet the appetite and prepare the taste buds for future courses. 

After the success with the Negroni, we each decided to try a cocktail of our own. Tom had never had a Manhattan before and when Garrett asked, “On the rocks or straight up?” Tom replied with, “whichever way is the most classic”. Garrett then explained that “up” is the most classic way, because we didn’t always have ice readily available. I was impressed that I had found a bar and bartender that would bother to ask, let alone explain why one would want to have it one way or another. I personally was unsure of what to get after being blown away by the Negroni, but expressed how I was intrigued by the cocktails he was making that had egg white in them. After making a round of five cocktails, he offered to make me a cocktail that was off the menu and that he only makes once in a blue moon. I’ll be honest with you, I can’t remember the ingredients or how he made it, but it was a sight to be seen and a work of art. I snapped a picture of the finished product, but am disappointed I can't share the video footage of how this incredibly delectable cocktail was made as it literally reached new heights. As Garrett slowly poured soda water down the spirals of the cocktail spoon, the cocktail slowly, but steadily rose like a push pop and at that moment I realized this was the infamous cocktail a friend of mine had recently been raving about. It was absolutely as delicious as it looked.

By the time we finished our cocktails, I was thoroughly impressed and glad we had made the journey out to downtown. I have been attempting to keep up the European lifestyle up since our trip overseas and walk to more places downtown, so keep a lookout for more downtown adventures.

The Big Eat: Local Monday

On Tuesday, February 11th 2020 I talked my significant other into taking part  in “The Big Eat '' promotion for local restaurants in Winston-Salem and decided to check out what 'Jeffery Adams’ had to offer. My Boyfriend and I decided to make the most of the evening and made plans to go on a double date after work with some co-workers. Unfortunately, I did not heed the warning on ‘The Big Eat” website, and made the classic mistake of not making a reservation ahead of time. When the four of us arrived, the whole restaurant was buzzing and soon learned that ‘Jeffery Adams’ would be able to accommodate us, but not for another 30-60 minutes . So we decided to “make lemons into lemonade” and kill a bit of time and explore downtown a bit more and try a local Bar called, ‘Bull’s Tavern’. We were able to walk to it in just a matter of minutes. The other couple that joined us, is in the process of choosing their signature cocktails for their wedding reception and decided to take this opportunity and sample some of their options while we waited for ‘Jeffery Adams’ to text us back to let us know that our table was ready.  After taking in the Downtown scene we were shortly notified that our table was ready so we made our way back to the restaurant and got the ‘Big Eat” special for that particular week. It was a delicious 12 ounce Black Angus New York Strip grilled over a wood fire, with mashed potatoes, and asparagus for only $14.50. They were also offering half off select wines that evening as well. Overall, we had a wonderful night exploring what downtown Winston-Salem has to offer with friends at a great price.

Local Monday with Whit's Frozen Custard Made Fresh Daily in Mount Airy

2/17/2020 (Permalink)

white frozen custard type ice cream with yellow sugar cone Whits Frozen Custard *Made Fresh Daily* in Mount Airy, NC

I had the pleasure of visiting Whit’s Frozen Custard Made Fresh Daily in Mount Airy on their grand opening, February 3rd 2020. I accompanied our Marketing and Social Media representative April Rhodes-Tillery to follow up on a job we had recently finished for the building. Not bad for my first day with SERVPRO of Winston Salem North as their new Events and Marketing representative, not bad at all. 

When I walked in, the owner’s of Whit's remarked on how much they appreciated SERVPRO of Winston Salem North coming in and making it "Like it never even happened.” 

The owner’s of Whit's informed me that as stated in their name, that they make their custard “fresh daily” with a variety of flavors. I was offered a sample of their Vanilla and Butter Pecan flavors. Although both were creamy and delicious, I decided to go with their Butter Pecan custard on one of their small cones and it was delicious

If you visit their website, they will tell you that three flavors is all anyone needs to create an endless variety of flavor combinations when you consider all their fruit toppings, nuts, and candies that can be blended into custard to make their famous Whitser. And you can't go wrong with their hand-dipped waffle cones and all their other delicious treats. 

Come check out their weekly rotating flavors on their website for tasty new treats. This week's flavor is Chocolate Covered Strawberry. It has Strawberry custard with fresh strawberries and dark chocolate flakes. This delightful dessert would be perfect for you and your Valentine or honestly, anyone who wants a delicious treat this week.

white screen with the Reboot Arcade Logo REBOOT ARCADE BAR Phone: (336) 893-6697 Address: 534 N Liberty St, Winston-Salem, NC 27101

Reboot Arcade Bar is a 80's and 90's style classic arcade. Boasting over 60 Pinball and Arcade machines.  It is probably the BEST place to end your night in Winston-Salem. Most machines either take 25¢ to 50¢. A bargain compared to most other entertainment venues in the area. With an ever rotating assortment of machines, you are bound to always find something new. 

They also host a Full Service Bar, with some pretty amazing Signature cocktails, like the 'Pop A Smurf' or the 'Swamps of Dagoba'. Craft beer and fun shooters. It is also a Dominoes pizza hot spot, so don't worry about the lack of kitchen. 

During Daylight hours (until 9pm), it is a family friendly establishment. They do request that all minors be accompanied by an adult. I took my 10 year old up there, and showed him how we really played games when I was growing up. He had an amazing time, and I finally won a few games.  It has turned into a perfect mommy and son time, and we always have a blast.

Old North State Winery in Downtown Mount Airy

You can find them on 308 North Main Street
Mount Airy, North Carolina 27030

Founded in 2002 by Ben Webb, Old North State Winery is unlike any other winery in North Carolina. Born and raised in Mt. Airy, founder Ben Webb studied both Viticulture and Enology in college, and upon graduating, began his quest to make outstanding North Carolina wines by planting a 10-acre vineyard on his family farm in eastern NC. As the vines matured, he then planted 18 more acres in the Yadkin Valley. With its clay loom soil and mild climate, Ben successfully grew Cabernet Franc, Chamboucin, Riesling, Petit Manseng, and Carlos and Nobel Muscadines a native NC grape.

It would be the grapes from these early plantings that Ben would use to create an outstanding list of award-winning wines. Building the winery from scratch, Ben was able to take all that he had learned about growing grapes and making wine and pair it with his love for technology and build one of the most technologically advanced wineries in the United States.

In addition to his outstanding wines, Ben wanted to do something to help the entire Mt. Airy economy. So, rather than house the winery at the vineyard, he located Old North State in downtown Mt. Airy with the goal of re-establishing the downtown area as a vibrant, growing economic center.   Today, Old North State Winery serves as one of the leading tourism destinations in the Yadkin Valley.

Housed in a former Hardware store built in 1890 on Main Street, Ben and his wife Ellie have successfully created a fun, hip, up-beat atmosphere combining wine tasting tours, a cool ambiance, outstanding food, live entertainment and events to create a true entertainment and dining destination. The winery still has the original pressed tin ceilings and solid oak floors from when it was originally built.

The winery is open 6 days a week with tasting tours available throughout the day.

Dining is available for lunch and dinner featuring locally grown and freshly prepared specials by world-renowned chef Chris Wishart.

Are you Traveling this Summer???

5/23/2019 (Permalink)

Don't let your home safety ruin your day in the Park.

Are you joining the 40 million people this weekend for Memorial Day? Have you prepared your home to remain safe while you are away?

The New York Times has some nice ideas on how to protect your home while on vacation.

Here are some of them:

To fully enjoy your trip, plan appropriate home security and maintenance with this checklist.

Inside the house

  • Set timers on interior lights. This goes a long way in deterring burglars, who often look for crimes of opportunity. Don't allow your house to appear as if no one is home.
  • Prevent power surges. You never know if a power surge can occur, so be prepared. Disconnect the computer, TV, stereo, and other electronics, or make sure they are plugged safely into a surge protector.
  • Don't make telltale status updates. Never broadcast your location on Facebook or Twitter. Even if you think that it's only your friends or colleagues viewing your online profiles, it's safest not to leave any sort of opening for a possible burglar.
  • Alert your alarm company. If you have an automatic security system in place, call your representative, announcing you'll be away from home for an extended period of time. Make sure the alarm is set properly when you leave.
  • Secure valuables. If you don't already have your jewelry or other valuables in a safe deposit box, now might be the time to do so. Doing this also ensures that you don't leave out anything valuable in plain sight that a burglar might be able to see from a window.
  • Set the HVAC. Set a programmable thermostat to lower your heat or air conditioning usage and remember to change the thermostat's battery.
  • Protect your pipes. Make sure pipes in vulnerable areas such as attics, basements, and crawlspaces are insulated. In unusually cold weather, set your thermostat at 55 degrees or above. Ask a neighbor or trusted friend to stop by and check on the house and periodically turn on the faucets to ensure the pipes don't freeze.
  • It might seem obvious, but double-check just to be sure. Lock all doors and windows. 

Outside the house

  • Arrange for lawn care. Have your landscaping tended to by a friendly neighbor or local service. Before you leave, trim tree branches that might allow access to a climbing burglar.
  • Stop newspapers and mail. Stop mail and newspaper deliveries, or have them regularly picked up by a neighbor. Again, you don't want to easily clue in a burglar to your absence by the mounting newspapers on your doorstep.
  • Plan some exterior lighting. Set these lights on timers as well, to deter burglars.
  • Don't leave spare keys outdoors. Collect any hidden spare keys from around the exterior of your home. Remember, burglars know the most popular hiding places, like beneath mats and in potted plants.
  • Lock the garage. Even if there is no entrance to your house from the garage, there's still a chance for numerous things to be stolen. Secure the door and any entrances to the garage.
