John’s Café

Restaurant: John’s Cafe, Woodbury

When you are hankering for: A “bistro-style dining experience featuring fresh, innovative New American dishes that often resonate a Mediterranean flair.”

Today’s occasion: We were both hungry. It was our first outing since Lora got married. We were celebrating carbs being back on the table. 

Swirl, smell, swish, savor (or swallow). Oh yeah…it’s wine tasting time!

You may have noticed that wine seems to make its way into most of our stories; visits to boutiques, cheese shops, even house tours; somehow we find a way to incorporate our favorite beverage. We are wine appreciators.

I’d heard about the great local vineyards we have around us in Litchfield County, but never took the time to visit. Now I ask myself, what the heck was I waiting for, a written invitation?! Well, we got one, in the form of an email. Maria Miranda invited Unlocking Litchfield to come on up to Goshen to see what they’re all about, and of course, taste.

Naturally, when invited to go on a Chocolate Decadence Sunset Train Tour, we hop straight on to Amazon and find two hats (one conductor, one engineer), add to cart – check out. The next time we get together we hold try outs for who will be the conductor. We have to do our best “All Aboooarrrdddd!!” Little did Lora know, I’ve been saying it like that for a while. Anytime somebody mentions All Aboard Pizza in New Milford, I have to say “All Aboooooaaarrrddd.” I can’t help it. You can watch the video to see who ends up wearing the conductor hat 😉
