Cheers and happy 4th y’all! Let’s all lift a glass to this great nation. I know the perfect place to do that: Potomac Point Winery. It’s right outside of DC in Stafford, VA. The wine flows a plenty and it’s ridiculously good! This is Rachael, the food and wine manager. (and that has to be one of the coolest jobs around) Not only is the wine good at Potomac Point, the food is too. With the picturesque scenery and a delicious taste testing tour,
you’ll never want to leave this place.

With the 4th just around the corner, it’s time to get your Betty Ross on! Carhartt Women’s Tomboy Hooded Vest is perfect for sporting your American pride. All you need is scrap fabric, paint, and thread. Stitch up a storm and you have your outfit for Independence Day. Whatever your holiday activities may be, this is a great outfit. It’s ideal for fishing, boating, bbq-ing, etc… My favorite thing about this vest is the media port to deal with those headphone wires easily.

Carhartt is proud to be an American company. Just check out the store in Woodbridge, VA. Its military theme pays respect to the 3 nearby bases. The store is full of Carhartt goodies and rare collectables. It’s cool to see a retail location that reflects the community so well.
