Happy National Cabernet Day - Thursday, August 30, 2012

Here at Woolley's, we love wine! So much so, that we have two entire evenings every week dedicated to Wine Lovers. (Every Sunday and Wednesday night you get half off any bottle in our extensive collection with your dinner).

Additionally, we take meticulous pride in our list and were awarded Wine Spectator's Award of Excellence and Wine Enthusiast's Award of Distinction as well.

Funny Somewhat Topical Ecard: It's National Cabernet Sauvignon Day or as I like to call it, Thursday.

And if that wasn't enough, we get to celebrate National Cabernet Day this week too. On Thursday, August 30, we'll be celebrating all things Cabernet by offering guests half off bottles of any Cabernet Sauvignon or Cabernet Franc on our list ALL day!

So, come on in tomorrow and enjoy half off any bottle of Cabernet in our award winning collection.

Happy Cabernet Day & Happy Thursday, friends!

How Does Our Garden Grow!

We're pretty excited by how well our garden's taken off, and we've sure taken to it as well. From incorporating our garden fresh produce into our Weekly Lunch Specials to supplementing our farmer's market finds, our garden has served us well this season.

When we started our little kitchen garden out back in May, it was full of promise. 

In June, it was growing well, despite the rabbits attempts at dining at Woolley's.

Now, just three months later, it's lived up to all of its potential and we're so thrilled to be able to share our garden's bounty with all of our guests.

This week, our lunch specials included a Bacon, Lettuce, and Fried Green Tomato Sandwich, and guess where the tomatoes came from. If you guessed our garden, you were right on the money! A few weeks ago, we were even able to use Smith Farms' grilled zucchini with our garden fresh cucumbers in a delicious Farm Fresh Salad lunch special.

We're also pretty excited about our indoor herb garden. We can use fresh herbs even during those long Minnesota winters. This whole green thumb thing is working out nicely.

How about you? Do you have a backyard garden or maybe even a kitchen herb garden? What's your favorite way to use your garden's bounty?
