Salad special at Vineyard Cafe & Wine Bar -- including local farm ingredients

I had this salad yesterday for lunch at Vineyard: heirloom tomatoes, mixed greens, pickled rhubarb slices, goat cheese and sautéed shrimp with a light vinaigrette. The tomatoes and rhubarb came from organic farmers at Sunday's Hyde Park market. It was yummy.

And if you go to Vineyard today (Weds.), it's half-price wine day! Bottles AND GLASSES are all half the listed price. They have an excellent, lengthy list and you're sure to find something pleasant.


  1. I think my mother would enjoy that special. She enjoys a glass of wine but hates paying restaurant prices for it.

    What's the Vineyard's address and hours? Maybe you could add a link to the Vineyard's website or, if that doesn't exist, its listing in a restaurant directory or other third-party site.

    Tech tip: If you don't want to clutter your prose with this information, try turning the first use of the word "Vineyard" into a hyperlink for said site.

    Said site can found with a quick google search. (Unless there's another Vineyard Cafe in Cincinnati, it's )

    Hyperlinks can be done point-and-click with Blogspot's interface or you can code it in manually. This webpage describes both ways:

    Personally, I love peppering my blog posts with hyperlinks. It allows me to only write what's exciting while still giving my readers easy access to related information.

    If you don't want hyperlinks, you could also do a list of website addresses at the end of your post, under the heading "For futher info:"

    PS By passing on this advice, I am in no way trying to sound like a know-it-all. The fact is, I am still trying to figure out a way to make my Wordpress blogroll display the most recent posts from other blogs. Which your Blogspot blogroll already does.

  2. Thanks for the tips! Next time I get back to this blog, I will take your advice.
