We are fortunate to have many guests of our B&B  that are true fans of the Finger Lakes and come back year after year.  Many come as groups of friends and hold "planning parties" over the Winter to plan for their trip.  Usually to plan which wineries they want to hit, what great restaurants they want to return to and so on.  This is a great way to beat the Winter blues and gives reason to raise glasses in celebration.   I have been fortunate enough to hear tales of these planning parties and so I have learned what are critical parts.

Good Friends - I hear they are essential, and I can't pick your friends for you, so you are on your own there.

Good Wine - See the Finger Lakes winery reviews to help you choose some for the event.

Good Music - I'm always partial to Jimmy Buffet and Van Morrison for these kinds of things, but there is a local talent (who also blogs about Finger Lakes wine as the Finger Lakes Weekend Wino) who has put together a pretty good and a bit comical collection of songs about the Finger Lakes.  The acoustic basis is easy to listen to and songs like "I want to thank Dr. Frank" and "I've been to all the Finger Lakes Wineries" will just make you laugh and smile.  Others will bring back memories of the great imagery of the Finger Lakes.

Good Food - Enough said.

 Mix together in a room...and plan away.  Have fun.
