I can't wait to visit Blowing Rock, NC in the future - such a beautiful town!
Thursday Dinner - Pig Roast in the parking lot of the Mountainaire Inn. There was a lot of fun, a lot of food, and a lot of wine! Check out the fireplace mantle design - we love going to this inn because the owner is just so creative with her decor. My mom and Bob have become friends with the owners over the years and they were invited guests to the festivities!
My husband and brother used the IPhones to measure the "vortex" phenomenons - like the water that flows uphill. There is absolutely nothing great about this place except that it was built so that your eye deceive you. IPhones checked the actual angles and no water was flowing up hill....
By way of further explanation, the vortex is a room built on a steep angle; as a result, gravity takes over and you feel like you want to fall down in the room (no different that standing on a steep hill).
Friday - Ceremony at the Mountainaire Inn, Blowing Rock. The ceremony was held outside the cabin where my mom and Bob stayed.
The reception was held at another incredibly beautiful hotel (sorry - forgot the name). We had a fantastic wine dinner (did you get the impression yet that our group loves their wine!).

Definitely recommend visiting the Green Park Inn in Blowing Rock to see if the chef includes any of the dishes taught in the Chocolate and Wine Cooking Class. Pork tenderloin covered in coffee grinds and drizzled with a dark chocolate sauce was a "to die for" meal!
