Calgary Needs A Champagne Friday Food Truck

The Freixenet Tastings & Tapas Truck

I like to celebrate Champagne Fridays. It’s nothing fancy, just at the end of each week a cork flies across my home office instead of getting cracked with a corkscrew.

In Dallas, this week, Champagne Fridays took on an entirely different meaning as The Freixenet Tastings & Tapas Truck rolled into town. It’s been cruising across the states all summer offering people the opportunity to taste Freixenet [87 points Wine Access] sparkling wine, nibble on “tapas” and play games.

The perfect definition of a Champagne Friday, in my books.

Today, in Calgary, we experienced our first snow of the season and the food trucks are turning their menus to more comfort food selections. Still, a little rolling Freixenet Friday in the Stampede City could do us all a bit of good.

Don’t you think?

How To Decorate Wine Bottles For Halloween

Freixenet Cordon Negro All Spooked Up For Halloween

Halloween is a Monday this year, which means the holiday will be turned into a 3 (maybe 4) day celebration. You’ll have events on Friday, Saturday (maybe Sunday) and Monday.

The kids get Monday for the trick or treating. That’s a given. Mom and Dad might take one of the other days on the weekend to get ghoulish with some friends. If a house Halloween party is on tap for your crew, don’t show up empty handed.

A bottle of Spanish bubble Freixenet Cordon Negro makes the perfect host(ess) gift. The matte black bottle (murdered out as Rob Dyrdek would say) easily lends itself to the spirit of the season and it’s simple to dress up.

A tissue, elastic and felt is all you need to turn your bottle into a spooky and festive ghost. The plain silhouette of the bottle is also a great canvas for stickers you might have left over from decorating with the kids.

The wispy curls of “smoke” that pop with the cork and when it’s poured also chime in time with the mood of the party.

It’s affordable too, with prices around $15.

This latest bottling of the classic Cordon Negro Brut is as clean, fresh, fruity and balanced as ever; infinitely drinkable without demanding too much contemplation. [Wine Access]
