What a wild and reckless event. In my humble opinion some heads connected to the President's security need to roll right out the door and the Salahis need to be found and put in jail for a month for that silly caper. What's with people today? Every ordinary Joe wants to seek fame and hang out with the powerful folks in D.C. and Hollywood. First, we had Balloon Boy's family stunt that scared everyone witless. Now we have this couple that loves getting attention by crashing a party at the White House. Luckily both events ended with not a tragedy. But the third time may not be so. I'm sure Al Quida watched the news this week and picked up on how easy it is to enter the White House. Don't scale the fence. Just scale the front door dressed to the nines. And as someone reported in the paper yesterday even though they passed thru the metal detectors indicating no guns on their persons, they still could have wrecked havoc at the White House by picking up a dinner knife from a table or by pulling an envelope of anthrax out of their clothing. And as my father would say "They like to live high on the hog." But according to news reports of exfriends and exhired help they don't always pay their bills because they are spending it all on creating their "image".
Now where was I? Oh, yes, The Iron Bridge Wine Company. It is located on Main Street in Warrenton, just down from the county courthouse building where Jack Kent Cook, the former owner of the Redskins, dissolved a couple of marriages. Now look below.
This place used to be a store so there are tables in the store windows and that's where Jack and I were seated. We had a good view of both the locals and the tourists walking down Main Street on this particular fall day. We even had a mini crystal chandelier to light the table.
This place serves both good food for lunch and good wine. You can do a wine flight that allows you to sample 1 ounce of three different wines. That's what Jack and I did. We did the wine flight that was Everything But Cabernet. So we had a red from Chile plus a California pinot noir and a shiraz from Australia. If you like the wine flight, you can purchase here the same wine in bottles to take home to enjoy. But we didn't do that. Instead we got this. Look below.
