Dear Long Islander,
Spring is finally upon us, and for many Long Islanders it could not have come quickly enough! Winter has brought one snowstorm after another, causing all sorts of havoc for commuters and drivers, as a consistent chill lingered for the better part of the season, but today we should see a bright sun and temperatures near 50°, with even warmer weather predicted for tomorrow. Unfortunately it looks like winter will be sending us one last blast of cold air next week, so get out there and enjoy your first taste of spring while you can. Have a glass of local wine, enjoy a nice lunch outside, take the kids to see some cool animals, head to the Spring Craft Beer Festival, or do whatever you enjoy most to celebrate the first weekend of spring!
First Glass Wine Tours
