Winter provides just a few opportunities to indulge in our wanderlust. We go on a few excursions and we try to spend weekends doing something fun, but getting out of the house when it’s cold and miserable is not our favorite pass time.
Our anniversary is the end of February, so we try to do an overnight stay somewhere not too far away so our 15 year old can stay home with the dogs but we’re close enough to get home if something happens. Carbondale is about 45 minutes from our house and has a vibrant downtown – lots of restaurants and fun things to do.
We got into town about noon, just as Marble Distilling Company was opening for the day. Our bartender (John Paul, I think his name was) was great and as we were the only ones there, we got lots of attention. I had a Cosmo or two, Todd tried a hot chocolate drink with their espresso-infused vodka called Moonlight ExPresso and tried their young whiskey. I tried their different vodka selections. We also had their cheese & charcuterie board, which was great nibbles to go along with our drinks.
