We are doing another mix & mingle in October at Alton’s where they have 40 wines by the glass! We’ll meetup here and have some drinks and socialize while enjoying the excellent service. Alton’s will be putting out a wonderful spread of appetizers and cheese for us to taste and they have an excellent menu for dinner as well. Click here for menu

We will be mingling in the bar area that holds more than 100 people. They have an excellent cozy, fine dining atmosphere and often host wine dinners as well. Come check it out with us! This is not a wine tasting, just a casual meetup with each member being responsible for their own tab.

Alton’s Kitchen and Cocktails is a new restaurant in Cornelius that opened in February in the former Charleston Chops and Mia Famiglia space, in the Jetton Village III retail center.

Alton’s features such offerings as Tuna Poke with Avocado, Traditional Maine Lobster Roll, BBQ Shrimp and Cast Iron Beef Medallions. They also have a Happy hour special daily called “The Peninsula Special” from 4pm-6pm that is a 3-course meal! I’ve tried the Filet mignon and twice baked potato and I highly recommend both! Delicious. Wednesday they have a 1.5lb Lobster dinner special too!

Entrées cost $9 to $23, with $6.50 house specialty martinis, a selection of wines by the glass or bottle and bottled and draft beers from around the world.

A small-plate menu will be available for bar patrons.


Wine Tasting at Wine Maestro in October in Lake Norman   Leave a comment

Chillin’ on the Patio at The Wine Maestro – Oct. 7, 2010 7pm

279 Williamson Road, Mooresville, NC 28117 to rsvp!!!

Since the Davidson meetup for this first week in October is full, we thought we would add another fun Wine tasting for Thursday in Mooresville!!! Only $10 for this tasting. Let’s meet up for some wines and music on the Patio!

The Wine Maestro is a really fun and trendy place that just opened up last year in Mooresville, right in the shopping center off Brawley School Rd. and Williamson Road.

Jamie puts out a wonderful spread of goodies and you can enjoy 4-5 tastes of wines for only $10! Members will enjoy the wonderful music on the patio by Don Berg (70’s & 80’s). You can also spend time shopping inside — the store is full of fabulous wine gifts, bottles of really hard to find wines, wine clothes, kitchen equipment, and more! I can’t ever seem to get out of here without buying an armful of wines and gifts.

The staff is friendly and extremely knowledgeable. They introduced me to the Molly Dooker wines that just came out and I LOVE them! I bought 3 bottles! Tell them what you like and they will point you in the right direction.

I pulled together some interesting photos of the last year and decided to share….
Some photos are of Lake Norman stuff and the Wine Club, and some are just of me and the Family.

This is snoop dogg and her owner, John. They are riding the Kawasaki standup together. Now, if you knew how hard it was to even get up and keep up a stand up jet ski, then you would appreciate this move!

West Marine – Cornelius NC – Lake Norman Boating Supply   Leave a comment


30 am!

I took this picture at 5:30 am!

2 really good friends of mine work at this store and we frequent it a lot for boating supplies all year long! I wanted to pass this information to my friends and clients!

Yes, we have a West Marine location in Cornelius NC Lake Norman!!! Their slogan is “We make boating more fun”. There are over 340 locations in the USA. This is the “go-to” store when you have boat questions and lake questions as well. 

If you are looking to buy stuff to fix your boat, watersports, fishing gear, boat engine supplies, sailboat, navigation, wetsuit apparel, or anything that you can use on a boat or PWC in the water, then you need to visit West Marine!


The staff is extremely friendly and they can order almost anything you need since they have tons of catalogs for supplies from fixing your boat to tubes or accessories. We have bought everything from numbers for the skis to the chemical that you dump into the onboard toilet.  

Recommendations:  My friend Justin is the Assitant Manager at West Marine and he recommended that we join a program called “West Advantage”. This program saves you a ton of money if you purchase lake and boat items frequently throughout the summer. It’s already paid for itself! We also signed up for the Boat U.S. Towing services and trailer towing (in case of emergencies). I have seen a lot of folks break down on the lake and it comes in handy to be able to call someone on your cell phone to come tow you in!


I send a lot of my clients to this store because of the extremely helpful and friendly staff, they KNOW boats and Lake Norman, and also because they have Lake Norman maps, Lake Norman Boating Rules pamphlets, and tons of things to make your boating outings safe and more fun!

Want to tie up with us this summer? Call me or email me! We love the lake and usually go out every Sunday!
