Need a date night idea?
Look no further.
Last night after the gym, Bryant and I got this spontaneous feeling. We hopped in the shower, threw on some nice clothes and decided to go out on a date. Since it was National Drink Wine Day, we decided to head to The Village at Meridian to hit up a wine bar and restaurant called Bodovino.
This is unlike any wine bar I have ever been to. Once you get your glass, you load money onto this card that has a chip and you get to fill ‘er up! It is like having a beer on tap, only better. It’s wine AND you get to fill it up yourself! A self-serving wine dispensing machine may sound too good to be true and you really have to see it to believe it. Bodovino at The Village offers 56 wines in self-serving dispensing machines along with bottled wines, draft wines, craft beer, and a full-service cocktail bar along with a complete menu from appetizers, main dishes, to dessert. This place truly has it all.
There are three sizes to choose from and prices vary. You can try a taster, a half glass, or full glass if you find one you really love. We enjoyed the taster method because it allows you to try so many wines from all over the world. About $30 later, we were feelin’ good and ready for some food!
If you are wondering where we ended up eating, it was not at Bodovino, although we definitely will next time. Please no judgement or questions about what I am about to tell you (I’m only telling you because Bryant is making me). Our spontaneous spirits ended up taking up to China Grand Buffet. Yes, you read that correctly. Our classy wine tasting night ended in a Chinese buffet. And you know what, we absolutely LOVED it.
