Top 5 V-DAY Activities (G rated)

LQB EDM Vday_8 Feb.jpg

Valentines Day doesn’t just have to mean flowers, dinner out, and a big bill.

We think Valentines Day is about hanging out with bae and eating, drinking, and having a good time. All of which can be done at home. Here are five suggestions to get you in the mood:


Picnic in the back yard.

Think about it: this is moderate effort for maximum results. Stop in at the shops on the way home and pick up all your favourite foods - tonight is not a night to be mature - tonight is a night to give in to everything you want. Swing by your local Liquor Barons and pick up something you’ve been wanting to try for a while. Get home, set up a picnic blanket, cushions, glasses, plates, cutlery, a little vase of flowers/greenery (from the garden perhaps?) and a candle or two. Then just wait for your number one friend/lover/s to get home from work. Best. Surprise. Ever. Extra points for board games/cards <3 We suggest:

(campari and soda with orange slice, as the sun sets)

Netflix and chill.

Oldie but still a goodie; especially if you’re bingeing on really good serial. See notes from point one RE setting yourselves up right with food and drinks. Move the picnic to the lounge? We suggest:

(Pinot + pizza (delivered))

Stay in bed.

All day. Chuck a sickie. No chores. No clothes (we mean ‘work’ clothes). Is this not the best idea ever? Refer to option 1 & 2 for nighttime plans. Champagne breakfast (in bed) to start of course. We suggest:

(Champagne + french toast with maple syrup)

Chuck a party.

Yeah - with all your other non-v-day-mates. We suggest:

(buying enough so you don’t run out)


Spa Party for two.

The whole kit-and-caboodle: robes, candles, bubble bath, wine, face masks - you know, all the romantic stuff. Wait til the kids go to bed is our best suggestion yet. We suggest:

Name better bang for buck. We’ll wait…

PS: All of these suggestions are adaptable to:

singles

couples who arent into the kissy stuff

couples who ARE into the kissy stuff (use your imagination)

If you’re at all familiar with the modern graphic artwork of Ash Schmitt, you’ll know he has a thing for Kanye. Names like Ye, Action Ronson, the LA Lakers, Trump (yes, even that bloke), Robert De Niro, John Travolta, Napolean Dynamite and Dennis Cometti and more pop up with entertaining regularity… so much so we couldn’t resist asking him to design some wine labels for us.

The Tour de France is almost over for another year, and although it looks like the plucky Welshman Geraint Thomas is going to end up in the middle of the podium, nothing is a done deal. Will the previous winner and favourite Chris Froome beat him to it? Hard to say… he’s got a big time difference to overcome if he can. Find out our Top 5 Drinks for the podium finish…

TOUR DE WINE: Champagne, France

TOUR DE WINE: Champagne, France

Ok ok ok, we know TdF doesn't start in Champagne, but we're pumped and wanted to celebrate the starting lineup - we'll meet you guys at stage 2. During le Tour, we're giving you the lowdown on what wine you can enjoy at each stage of the Tour which will be on point for the location AND we're proposing an Aussie alternative in case your local doesn't have the real deal French. It's a big tour, lots of stages and wine discovery ahead - we're ready... are you?

Tour de Brew: Margstyle

Tour de Brew: Margstyle

The TDF can’t be that hard right? They’re just riding bikes. Well you can too… in our TOUR DE BREW! You think you know Margs, and you think you love beer… so why not combine them and show your mates how easy it really is. PS: It’s not easy at all. In fact, the TDF guys ride in a single day, the full length of our TDB. We bet it takes you a bit longer than a day to get around to all of these breweries… but hey: prove us wrong.
