The Poor Porker opens in Lakeland

November 8, 2015

Last night was a memorable evening. Not just because I got to go out with my handsome husband, but also because we were invited to a grand opening in Lakeland. Hard work pays off.

Dinner at Red Door Wine Market

August 13, 2014

Tonight we decided to head over to Lakeland to have dinner at the Red Door Wine Market. I heard about the Red Door Wine Market through Fit Niche.

Was I worried about bringing my kids? Yes and no. Yes, because I didn’t want to bring them to a “bar” but I knew that my kids would find something in their menu to eat. So, I felt confident we’d be ok. Besides, we were headed there at 6 pm so I knew there wouldn’t be too much of a drinking crowd.

Walking up to the restaurant, it is very unassuming place. It’s a little old house with a white tent outside. On this day, the tent was hosting a lot of runners. So we walked right by them to get a sit inside. Can I just tell you, how much I love the decor? It’s a really comfortable setting with wooden floors and original art on the walls. Again, nothing fancy but definitively nice.
