It’s fall(ish), it’s football, and it’s FOOTBALL WEEK once again on grapefriend! Most people think beer for games, but grapefriends think wine. Football foods are actually amazing with wine, and even though my mission to get better wine in sports bars hasn’t swept the nation (YET) you can still pop a good bottle on your … Continue reading

It was obvious the Giants were going to win the World Series for two reasons: 1) Their name is the Giants, and all Giants rule sports. 2) They celebrated with the better bubbly (Mumm Napa versus the Tigers’ non-alcoholic Fre Brut). This was a no-brainer sweep. I do wish journalists would stop saying these teams … Continue reading
world series of bubbly: giants vs tigers

Thank god we won that one.) Luckily, … Continue reading

And many of those wins are thanks to one Victor Cruz, the adorbale, salsa-dancing touchdowner who made a KILLER 74-yard TD last night. That was after last week’s 99-yard touchdown that set a Giants … Continue reading
gorga’s giant grapes
Last night I went to the Giants game. I had to drink beer, but it was actually good (called Landshark – pretty tasty). Anyway, Joe Gorga from Real Housewives of New Jersey was sitting right in front of us with Richie (Kathy’s husband). I didn’t see Joe drinking, but grapefriend has to wonder if he’d … Continue reading
