Samples and Tastings
Yesterday after training clients and then making lunch, I convinced Shane to head out and run some errands with me. First stop: Friar Tuck.
Every they send us wine of the month deals, and we hadn’t used the past two months. We were determined to go out there and try November’s Pinot Noir, though
There was only a little bit of time left before the Saturday afternoon tastings closed, so we made sure to make our rounds there, too.
Gets us every time. Next thing we knew, we were both bee-lining it to the goods to take home what we just tasted.
Of course, Friar Tucks is HUGE, so we always consider it a small victory when we leave the place spending under $100.
Next, we headed to Complete Nutrition to spend a gift certificate Shane got for his birthday month, and then immediately left after we got word vomited on and chased around by the sales rep. Our clue that we shouldn’t have gone in: no other shoppers were in the store.
Finally we headed to Petco for pet food, Dick’s for ear plugs + socks, and then to Fresh Market for a few necessities. What was not a necessity, but was definitely welcomed was the Thanksgiving feast tasting that had set up!
Mashed potatoes, and green beans, and pumpkin pie, Oh MY! We paraded through the line, and sampled one of each. I’ve got some ideas for some party desserts when we have our Christmas party in December, now
Running errands and getting a drink and a bite to eat while doing it? I’d say that’s a #winning situation!
Do you partake on tastings and samples at stores? This is actually half the reason why I shop at Sam’s Club! haha
