Wine Ireland

A couple of years ago a colleague of mine in the Association of Wine Educators, Wink Lorch, wrote and published an excellent book titled Jura Wines. Up to that point my knowledge of the wines from that part of France was sketchy at best. Words such as ‘Yellow Wine’ (Vin Jaune),’ Straw Wines (Vin Paille)’, […]

“Bachelor” nation’s current it-couple, Jason Tartick and Kaitlyn Bristowe, just celebrated their first Valentine’s Day together with a romantic weekend getaway in Boston, and we’ve managed to get hold of some serious details about their prolonged date in our hometown. First, we hear that the reality TV stars started off their V-Day by checking into the Boston Harbor Hotel, where Tartick gifted his gal a stunning floral arrangement from Winston Flowers. Once there, the pair was apparently put up in the hotel’s John Adams Presidential Suite, the new 4,800-square-foot luxury room inside its iconic rotunda that costs a mere $15G a night. After getting settled into their real-life fantasy suite, the lovebirds were seen sharing dinner at Bistro du Midi on Thursday evening. We’re told that they spent time speaking with the restaurant’s chef and partner, Robert Sisca, and posed for pictures with fans while enjoying their multicourse meal. They sat at their table for hours, closing down the Boylston Street restaurant at the end of the night. Their Hub fun continued on Friday, when the reality stars began their day with a special breakfast prepared for them en suite by the Boston Harbor Hotel’s Chef Daniel Bruce. We’re told that the duo noshed on smoked salmon and avocado toast before hitting up the Rowes Wharf Health Club & Spa for a couples massage. Once night fell, they were spotted in the Seaport having sushi at Empire Asian restaurant and lounge, where fellow “Bachelor” alums Jordan Kimball and Kamil Nicalek also happened to be dining. The dating show vets all chatted, before Tartick — who happens to be pals with fellow Upstate New Yorker Rob Gronkowski — and Bristowe finished their dinner and went to meet with some friends downtown. And on Saturday night, the couple hit up Sonsie on Newbury Street with a crew of friends, who all split a seafood plateau that included lobster, shrimp and oysters on ice. As a post-dinner pick-me-up, the group snagged a VIP table at The Grand, where they raged right next to the booth as DJ Brooke Evers performed. And Bristowe shared an especially epic moment with the club’s bottle girls, as they hoisted her into the air in a miniature Jeep and paraded her — and a bottle of tequila — to their table. “Bachelor” alum Kaitlyn Bristowe being paraded around at The Grand.
