Thirsty Thursday: What kind of vino should I crush for the Day of Labor?
 What: Wölffer Rosé
Where can I get it? Wölffer Estate Vineyard (139 Sagg Road in Sagaponack) or any resto in the Hamptons (except Ruschbangers, wtf.)
How many pesos is it? $17/bottle. That is, if you can get your hands on it (There is currently a Rosé shortage out east).
Why does it rule? It’s cheap, it’s sweet, and it’s made in my happy place. Oh, and I like it almost as much or more than prosecco. That’s how good it is.
Tell me about the taste: This super sweet citrusy rosé (with hints of grapefruit and peach) has a little fizz to it. For all the winos, the blend is: 58% Merlot, 24% Chardonnay, 11% Cabernet Franc, 6% Pinot Noir and 1% Cabernet Sauvignon.

                           I had an expensive smoothie and I liked it….
I’m a sheep. It’s official.
Where this deed occurred: Elixir Juice Bar (70 Greenwich at 7th Avenue, West Village). Side note: there are other locations as well.
What I ordered: The Immune Smoothie (Made with banana, rice milk, orange juice, peaches, strawberries, vitamin c, and Echinacea). Cost to me: $6.95 and 245 calories. #priceybutyummy
Why it was awesome: I was a little under the weather this weekend (no, actually sick. Not hung over) and was looking for something to help me turn the corner. 8 hours post smoothie, I felt better. Coincidence? Maybe. But either way it tasted awesome. All the ingredients were natural (no rando extra sugar), the OJ was fresh squeezed, and the usually gross Echinacea was tasteless. Another refreshing quality: the size small is actually big.
About Elixir: Opened in 1999 as a natural smoothie bar, Elixir has expanded into juice and healthy food.  Everything is 100% pure, including the supplements (no creepy chemicals here). Since my first visit, I’ve been back and am happy to report that this chain has a mom and pop feel to it. Read: They give New Yorkers the attention they believe they deserve. But if you don’t feeling like walking or talking to strangers, you can simply order on seamless.

What: The best spot to drink outdoors in the summer months.

Where: The Outside Bar at the Loeb Boathouse (AKA “The Boathouse”)
Address please: East 72nd Street and 5th Avenue

A little history: Located in the heart of Central Park, this NYC landmark is overlooking a 20-acre lake (A quarter the size of Stuytown). The Boathouse originally opened in 1924, but was revamped in 1954 by investment banker Carl Loeb. #typicalNYC. Since then, this urban retreat has been a popular spot to enjoy tasty cuisine, drink adult beverages, rent a rowboat, and get hitched.

Five ways to describe The Boathouse: Yuppie-tastic, Republican stomping ground, An urban Oasis, A clubhouse without membership fees, and/or a restaurant on a lake.

10 Reasons why it’s Bitchin’:

It’s a taste of nature in the big city. Walk a few blocks left or right, and you will be among expensive shops and people with opinions.
It’s great for all occasions. Bevs with your man friend, your besties, your kid sis, and/or when you feel like grabbing a drink in your white polo.
It’s near my new house. Uptown is the new downtown.  That’s a lie, but just be on my team.
It’s an idyllic setting to unwind. And slam a prosecco or two.
It has something for everyone. The Boathouse is divided into the Lakeside restaurant (for upscale dining), the express café (lunch for under $15), and the outdoor café (what I am talking about here, pay attention!)
You can seat yourself. Reservations are overrated.
Great for people watching. A lot of pretty people with a solid mix of tourists and locals.
There are turtles galore in the lake. Who doesn’t like turtles?
You can rent a gondola to take you around. Creative date much? It’s Venice in NYC.
Drinking outside>Drinking inside. Duh.

When can I go? It’s seasonal (April-November) pending weather.
