3rd Corner

“I’d rather have a bottle in front of me, than a frontal lobotomy.”  — Tom Waits

3rd Corner

One of the Wine Harlots favorite hang-outs is the 3rd Corner in the Lumberyard in Encinitas, California.  It’s a wine shop and restaurant combined.  They have a full-bar (optimal when you have beer or spirits only friends!) and a delicious menu.  The ambience is fantastic.  It’s like being at your bohemian-sophisticated friends house.

One of the Wine Harlots pet peeves is being priced-gouged on wine.  The 3rd Corner gets it.  They are winos at heart and truly have the customers’ best interest in mind.  My favorite concept is that you can purchase a bottle from the retail section, and drink it at your table for a $5 corkage fee.  No kidding!  On the retail side, through the end of June they are offering a 15% discount on mixed cases and a 10% discount on six bottles.

The music pairing for while you’re en route is the Emiliana Torrini album Love in the Time of Science. Have a tremendous time (we always do!) and tell ‘em the Wine Harlots sent you.  Cheers!
