I have a confession: I’m lazy.  Like … really lazy —- don’t even like to make decisions lazy.  My boyfriend mistakes it for indifference or even for the inability to make decisions … but it’s really just laziness.  That said, my laziness often gets in the way of me trying new places or things.  (In my best Most Interesting Man in the World impression) I don’t always make an effort to visit “faraway*” places, but when I do, it’s to the Design District to visit Wine Poste.

This 4500sf space has retail, art installations, event spaces (three of them in varying sizes, in fact), and even offers wine tasting events along with wine & cheese pairing classes and celebrity chef private dinners.

Now for the completely unique thing about WP: they ship wine.  Anywhere in Texas, you can order wine and have it delivered to your door for a mere $5.  NOTE: This is extremely rare.

TX Whiskey

Fort Worth is now even cooler in my book … like, really a LOT cooler.  Not only do they have stockyards (complete with cows), Printcustom bootmakers, and a brewery that’s cookin’ up some really delicious frosty beverages, Rahr Brewing Company, but now they have a whiskey distillery.  Yes, you read that right … a whiskey distillery right here in DFW.  Be still, my heart, it’s true.

Two regular dudes (errr … maybe not so regular*) decided that Fort Worth needed some locally-made whiskey, so they got the money together and made it happen.  TX Whiskey was what came out of their dream.

This whiskey comes in one of the cooler bottles that I’ve seen, complete with a cork unlike any other (literally).  Each cork is made with a small circle of repurposed leather from boots donated by bookmakers and distillery visitors.  I’ve been keeping mine because … well, they just look neat.
