Local Tourist: May Was a Good Month!

Posted May 31, 2018 by shooting in Cincinnati, Personal / 31 Comments

It’s that time of the month already! Every last weekday of the month, Dara from Not In Jersey and I share all the local tourist things we did: places we went, things we saw/ate, etc. If you want to join us, please link up at the bottom of this post! We’d love to have you. For your calendar, the next Local Tourist dates will be: Friday June 29, Tuesday July 31, and Friday August 31.

Looking Back On May – Local Tourist Style

Mother’s Day was Sunday, May 13 and my parents, sister, and I went to Vinoklet Winery, Restaurant and Vineyard. We’d never been before but I came across their Mother’s Day brunch online and we thought we’d check it out. It’s such a beautiful place! We took a few photos outside (you can see one above) because it was so gorgeous. As for the actual brunch, I have to admit it was only okay for me but everyone else seemed to really like it. I’d be curious to go back and check out the actual restaurant. I think brunch style was a bit difficult to pull off – the room was kind of small and my meat got cold. The dessert, on the other hand, was quite tasty!

After eating we went outside to take the above mentioned photos but to also check out some various vendors and craft booths that were set up. I immediately checked out the ladies who were selling LulaRoe because I’ve been wanting more of their Perfect T’s. Thankfully, I found one in my size that was really cute (I don’t always like the patterns). It was a fun day and my whole family did agree we should go back.

  1. Looks like you had a wonderful time! The view is lovely and I’m glad you got a Perfect T you liked. Good food, a lovely venue and shopping sounds great πŸ™‚

  2. That sounds like a great place to celebrate Mother’s Day! I love going to wineries and I think it’s even better that this one had a brunch!

  3. Oh I love your pic! Looking good Lauren! πŸ™‚ oh a Winery/ Restaurant/ Vineyard! Is there anything better than food and wine? I THINK NOT! πŸ™‚ Sorry to hear brunch was just ok but maybe next time it will blow you away πŸ™‚ I would think with that beautiful weather they would have outdoor sitting!

  4. Looks like you had a fabulous Mother’s Day! I love wineries and the one you’re at looks beautiful! Glad to hear you enjoyed your time! πŸ™‚

  5. We have done Mother’s Day at a winery before and it is always so pretty, especially if it is a nice day outside. The photo of you with your mom and sister is a great one!! I love brunch! Sorry it wasn’t perfect, but at least the finishing dessert was tasty!


  6. That sounds like a fun day, although that’s a bummer that the brunch was just okay. Brunch is one of my favorite things to eat out, so I’d be disappointed if the food wasn’t very good. I love that picture of you with your mom and sister!

  7. That is so lovely! I just found a local winery that had a massive back gazebo with a wood burning stove. The owner’s mother made homemade pizzas in it and they are so delicious. Of course I couldn’t go there for mother’s day – I mean come on…make his mom make me pizza! I imagine he probably hired someone else to do it LOL!

    Aww how fun, and great pic! I agree some of the LuLaRoe designs are not quite for me either. Glad you found one that worked!
