After his art show at the Sunflower Caffe earlier this summer, Obadiah approached us about hanging a show at the girl & the fig. Unfortunately, that wasn’t an option since we’ve given the walls to our resident artist, Julie Higgins, but I loved his work so much that I decided to commission some paintings to use in a few retail applications. Here are just a couple of the scenes.
August 22, 1997 is when this joyride began!

This summer, we are bringing you some of the best Rosé wines we can find. We are off to a good start (see below), and expect a few more additional selections as the heat rises. You will also soon be able to order a Rosé wine flight at the girl & the fig.
Generally, Rosé wines are the perfect blend of a light, refreshing and delicate white wine with the tart berry flavors of a red. Rosé wines have the best of both worlds with a balanced mix of qualities of both red and white wines. The presence of low to mild tannins and a low acidity level and alcohol content allows for pairings with both the heavier, high protein dishes that would commonly be paired with reds and the lighter more delicate dishes that would be paired with whites. This summertime wine is frequently paired with meats and vegetables just off the grill, and is also a great accompaniment to salads and greens, poultry, seafood, and spicy dishes. Served chilled, Rosé is truly versatile and can be perfectly paired with almost anything.
Delicate, flavorfully sweet and beautifully balanced, rosé wines are a budding favorite among wine drinkers, and are becoming increasingly more recognized as a wine worthy of drinking regularly. With a sophisticated range of flavors, intricate means of production and versatile potential, rosé wines present an exciting alternative to the wine drinker as a subtle, refreshing and innovative wine.
