Nothing says “celebrate” like the sound of a champagne cork popping and it is my firm belief that every celebration, big or small, merits a bottle of bubbly. Even if what you’re celebrating IS opening a bottle of champagne, on a Tuesday, because you’re an adult and you would like some champagne. If it is a truly special occasion, a new job, a birthday, or a dear friend’s engagement, there is one champagne that I always turn to and that is Veuve Cliquot.
I adore everything about Veuve Clicquot from the rich history as the first woman-run champagne house in the early 1800’s to its modern and provocative slogan- “let life surprise you.” So when I heard that my favorite champagne was coming to town to help my favorite local hotel celebrate their second birthday, I was tickled pink!
Quirk Hotel transformed their ever-charming rooftop bar into an outdoor picnic covered in baskets full of flowers, lawn games, and of course, buckets and buckets of Veuve Cliquot.
Special thanks to Quirk Hotel and Jim Woods of Moët Hennessy! Our crew of champagne enthusiasts had a perfect afternoon celebrating above the Richmond skyline. Hope this becomes a yearly tradition!
