I finally got to meet Art, the owner of Art's Specialties. I had hoped to get over there for the wine and smoked fish tasting that he had on Saturday, but I was traveling. I was so bummed. I heard it was nice.
I found myself in there with another Maynard friend on Sunday afternoon, looking for something I could make for dinner. I got some Italian sausage (really delicious, and not like any I've had before) and some spinach and asiago stuffed ravioli. Also delicious.
While I was there, I decided to buy a bottle of wine. It just so happens that the one I picked up happened to be one of the wines he had sampled on Saturday. He suggested a wine tasting, and like that he had three bottles of wine out for us to try. It was great. I loved my purchase and left with a few other things, too.
If you haven't been in yet, stop by. They are open late by Maynard standards, so though you can stop in during the day (yes, even on a Monday), you stop in after work if that works for you.
