Visiting In-Laws

you love your in-laws, but sometimes they can drive you up a wall.  They’re in town for 3 days - today is day 3, and you are starting to go insane.  You need to get away fast, so you devise a crafty plan: “why don’t we all go wine tasting today” you suggest…
 


 

Saturday 8/25

11:30am

Arrive at Shadow Springs with your crew.  While your mother-in-law is distracted by all our fun gift stuff, your phone starts to ring.  You tell everyone, “ooh this is my boss I better take it” and step away. Really, the phone call is from your buddy waiting for you out in the parking lot.  After a few minutes, walk back over to your extended family and say, “looks like there was a problem with our TPS report this week, I’m gonna have to sort this out.  Why don’t you all just go ahead without me, and I’ll catch up later - Chuck told me I could use his office”. Before they have a chance to protest, turn away and yell something into the phone.  You did it, you’ve escaped.

12:00pm

Jump in your friend’s car and sneak over to WRC Distillery for the 12pm tour & tasting.  Lucky for you, our NC distillery lobbyists managed to add a rider onto the 2017 Brunch Bill now allowing you to purchase up to five bottles per year on-site.  You may need more than just one to get through tonight.

1:00pm

Time for lunch.  Odds are, your unsuspecting in-laws are over at the Shilo General Store eating lunch and admiring the beautiful Amish furniture.  You should probably just grab a sandwich from the local Subway.

1:30pm

Continue your vacation by circling back to Shadow Springs, where you and your friend can take a load off and drink some wine slushies in peace.  Pro tip: ask for a mixture of the two flavors on tap.

3:30pm

Finally, it’s time to say goodbye to your friend and rejoin the rest of your family over at Windsor Run.  The world looks a little brighter now, and you’re ready to tackle the final stretch before your in-laws head out of town tomorrow - sanity restored.
