Growing up, my family went on numerous summer vacations. The five of us all usually traveled in my parent’s midsize sedan. While we enjoyed each other’s company for a while, we soon became irritable. We didn’t have nearly enough room in the car to remain comfortable for longer than an hour or two. If you’re planning an upcoming vacation, consider renting a vehicle to travel in. You can ride in style; and, you will have enough room to stretch. On this blog, you will discover the best types of vehicles to rent for large families. Enjoy your vacation ride this year!
If you have a special birthday or anniversary coming up, a great way to have a good time with your friends and celebrate is with a tasting of some local craft beers or wines. Not only is this a fun way to socialize and spend the night out, but also its a good way to support small business and to explore new things. Here are some of the things you want to do when you are trying to plan and coordinate such an event.
Check Into All Locations
You want to make sure that there will be beer, wine and spirits for all of the guests that are attending the tour. Call ahead to the location, or to the different stops, to make sure that they carry a variety of spirits to enjoy, and also to make sure that they have some type of menu. You want to be able to enjoy food along the way while alcohol tasting, even if it's just appetizers or shareable items at each spot.
Arrange Transportation in Advance
No one should be driving after drinking anything alcoholic, especially if they are tasting multiple types of beverages and you are hopping to different locations. It isn't worth the legal complications that could occur if the police pull the driver over, or worth putting the driver, passengers, and other drivers and community members at risk of an alcohol related accident. Find a large party bus, limo, or another type of transportation option, such as a guided tour from Top Shelf Transportation, LLC, that will fit everyone.
Understand the Costs for Tastings
The different costs for tastings will include the quality of the alcohol, the quantity of the tasting servings, and the food served with the tastings. Talk about getting a group rate for your party, and explain how you will be paying for everyone's tasting. Adding food to the reservation in advance may help you get a discount.
If you know that your crowd is going to be more favorable to either wine or craft beer, plan the location or stops on the tasting tour accordingly. If you think one stop for the day is the best option, make sure there will be enough to do to entertain the group for the entire evening. When you call the establishment, they should let you know If there is any type of live music or other entertainment for the night. Listening to a great band or a live comedian is a great way to add to the fun of the evening.
