All you need are a few Patron bottles and creative eye for design to try to win $10,000. All you have to do is reimagine the iconic bottles to design something new. Last year’s winner made the ultimate game coffee table complete with a delight chess set with tiny bottles. I don’t know about anyone else I would love to have an excuse to have a major Patron party with Patrón XO Cafe Incendio, Patrón Añejo, Patrón Citrónge, Patrón Citrónge Lime,  Roca Patrón Reposado and Patrón Silver to name some classic favorites and new ones to try! I usually stick with Silver and XO but do have a weakness for Patron Margaritas. I’m not the most handy person but could maybe reimagine a bottle into a tiny herb garden hmmm but is that art? What would you make to win $10,000 from Patron?

Wally's Tent Sale

It’s time to stock up at my yearly favorite sale … Wally’s Winter Tent Sale! I try to go every year to enjoy the wonderfully curated selection of wine and spirits they have in stock with up to 80% for this one winter weekend! This year the winter tent sale starts on Friday, January 23 – Sunday, 25 9am – 5pm.

I always go for the entire weekend to check out the deals. It’s always a great idea to go on Saturday for tasting and the opportunity to talk with reps about their wine. The opportunity to talk with sommeliers and staff has enabled me to buy great wines over the years that I might have missed. Two years ago I got the best French Rose that tasted of summer from the scent of flowers to fruit that danced on my tongue .. perfect for a picnic or a concert at the Hollywood Bowl!

Make sure you head to their Cheese Shop for delicious food to go with your new beverages!

This year am hoping for wine perfect for a spring party at my apt welcoming all the changes that 2015 will hopefully bring (new job, new boyfriend/love, new body as I get in shape) into my life.

What’s the best deal you’ve gotten at Wally’s Tent Sale over the years?
