Tipsy Tarot
This week's pairing is with the Vintage Wisdom Oracle paired with Château de Berne Inspiration Rosé. The oracle cards are created from  vintage French postcards and artwork to bring a touch wisdom to the soul. The rosé is produced in Provence with notes of berries and pomegranate. French wisdom and French wine are the perfect pairing.

The cards are coming through with faith, choice, and beauty.

Time to remember the “bigger picture”. When you are frustrated because you aren’t getting your way, stop for a minute and find your faith. A delay doesn’t always mean a denial. There are things that have to fall into place. Sometimes the universe is setting you up for something even bigger.

When you are faced with a decision have fun with your choices. Don’t let them stress you out. Having options is a privilege. The only thing that you have to remember is "to thine own self be true".

It’s a good time to be grateful. Take time to reflect on all the things that are beautiful in your life.

Long story short:

Keep the faith, the universe has your back. Everything is working out in your favor. It’s good to have choices. All you have to do is remember your truth. There is so much beauty in your life. Give it up for gratitude. The universe will respond in kind. Blessed be!

CMX Cinemas

Going to the movies has been a big thing for as long as anyone can remember. However, for a while going to the movies wasn’t fun. The cost went way up and the food was “meh”, so people would just wait until a flick made its way to cable. Finally someone had the brilliant idea to add reclining seats (what took them so long) and make the food options better. Then came CMX Cinemas who wanted to take the movie and dining experience to a whole other level by making it a luxury experience. This is what we’ve been waiting for.

For the past few years in select cities, CMX Cinemas, has been serving up VIP movie experiences through their CMX CineBistro, a luxe dine-in and seat services, CMX Market Cinema, gourmet grab and go movie experience, and CMX Cinemas, upgrades traditional theater with classic concession.  The latest CMX CineBistro opened in New York City on the Upper East Side.

The six story cinema houses six auditoriums with the most current flicks including one that will be set aside for independent movies. The food and wine menu are created by chef, Isaac Stewart. All of the cocktails are hand-crafted with some featuring local ingredients so they are designed for the theater’s specific location.

I was invited for a preview of the experience. A welcome glass of bubbles was ready as I  arrived. The friendly and attentive staff were there to assist. We had a selection of two movies. I choose The Greatest Showman which seemed fitting for a night of food and cocktails.

Once you hit the door of the theater there is someone there to take you to your seat. That’s where you will find a menu and reclining chair waiting for you. It’s recommended that you get to the theater for enough time to take your seat and place your order. Once the movie starts you will have to go to the bar and get things yourself so that the waitstaff doesn’t disturb viewers during the movie. 

I had a glass of red wine, though I also grabbed a cocktail from the bar so that I could have the wine with my meal and the drink as I starred at the delicious Hugh Jackman for a few hours. I kept seeing big bowls of popcorn going by so I ordered one as well.

The food at CMX is seriously for the grown and sexy. You get real plates and silverware. Your wine or cocktail will arrive in a real glass. Nothing fake or faux about them.  My meal was quite good. Do yourself a favor and get the popcorn. It’s delicious and it comes in a big ‘ole bowl so you can get all cozy with it in your reclining seat.

If you aren’t in the mood to see a flick, you can still kick it at the bar to enjoy many of the classic cocktails that the mixologists. It’s worth stopping by the bar to enjoy the ambiance.

The CineBistro is a great date place. If you use it as a first date, it may be hard to top yourself. When you want to impress your partner this is where you take them. As for the sexy and single people, take yourself out for this luxury experience, because you deserve it. In other words when you want to do a movie and dinner with an experience, the CineBistro has your name written all over it. See you at the movies!

La Vie Pompette

Witch On Wine:

*Thanksgiving is right around the corner which poses a most important question, “what wine should you pair with your turkey”. Feel free to say “hmmm”.  I vote for a nice "Crémant”, because it’s a sparkling wine that goes great with everything. However would some of the big time somms say? One says Beaujolais, while another says Sparkling Apple Cider. So many pairing options so little time. Enjoy the suggestions, but always go with what makes your palate happy.

 *If you want wine suggestions for the holidays or something just to sip, feel free to check out my reviews on Vivino. You might even be able to get the wine sent to you , nice and easy.

Sorceress on Spirits:

*Smirnoff is here to help you get into the holiday spirit with vodka filled ornaments for your tree.  There are four limited edition glass ornaments to choose from. Why  not collect them all? Though as the day progresses, glass ornaments filled with happy juice may hard to hold onto.

Charming Cheese:

*As we all know, there’s a new study that comes out every week. Most times they are a real bummer, because it’s all about how a yummy food is bad for us. Well, a study just came out that says eating cheese could be the keep to helping people live longer. Cue the confetti. This is the best news ever. Basically, it’s being said that eating cheese may not be as negative on the cardiovascular system as thought. So, eat cheese..pair with wine and live to be 100 years old.

Kitchen Magick:

*One of the most antiticpated side dishes on Thanksgiving is sweet potatoes. Since I’m from Texas, I’m all about putting marshmellows on mine.This year, I’ll be firing up my Crock-Pot to make a Sweet Potato Casserole. It will give off the smell of cinnamon and spices for a touch of kitchen magick.
