Hello friends. It’s been a LONG time since I’ve posted anything because I’ve been a total blogging slacker! Between starting a new job and the lack of motivation I have over the winter months, nothing has been accomplished. After thinking about the true intention of “Bite Me,” the blog posts will be changing a bit going forward. The main goal of the blog, Facebook and Twitter page was to promote local food and beverage businesses in the Capital District. Somehow along the way, it became a food review blog and that’s not what it was intended to be (plus I hate taking pictures of my food while I am out). Going forward, the blog will feature local businesses only. If I think something is delicious, it will definitely get a mention but if something isn’t that great, I will keep it to myself. These business owners work hard so who am I to say what’s good and what isn’t. Who the heck am I anyway?!?!!?! The goal is to grow readership, which will in turn help get more exposure for the great places in our own backyard. Who knows, maybe a TV series will accompany the blog soon too! If there is place that you love, let me know! There’s nothing more exciting than trying a new local eatery, winery or brewery. Thanks for checking out the blog and I hope it helps you find some cool new spots to check out.
To kick off my first blog post in months, I wanted to mention that The Thirsty Owl winery is now open in Saratoga. The original Thirsty Owl Wine Company is a destination winery, midway up the west side of Cayuga Lake, dedicated to producing high quality wines. They have decided to open a second location in Saratoga which is to our benefit. They remodeled a building that’s been around for a while and it’s beautiful. We did a tasting and I have to say that the Malbac was a favorite of mine. The Thirsty Owl is now pouring full glasses of wine as well and they intend to open a restaurant in the front of the building. If you are in the area, it’s worth stopping in and checking out. The winery is located at 184 South Broadway.
