Their shop is in Fairhaven but they also have the Purple Space which is a warehouse on the water (literally on the water) where they do their club pick ups the first Thursday, Friday and Saturday of every month. The space is fun, welcoming and unique and every month we look forward to attending to pick up our wine and, of course, taste the month's selections.
Now, we have been doing this for quite some time but haven't really grasped the concept that it's right after work and we are hungry! Our usual M.O. is heading over to the Space to meet up with our darling friends, the other half of the 'Peens'. We taste, we laugh, we schmooze, we laugh, we taste, oh, and we laugh. A lot. Yes, they are that funny. But by the time we're done, we are absolutely starving and always say we should have brought snacks with us.
So this month around, after dramatically proclaiming that we will not be hungry! I decide to pack a picnic dinner for our night out. But what to make? Something that could be versatile enough to go with the unique wines of the month.
Oh also, something easy and something that would travel well., i.e. travel and emerge from picnic basket looking fresh, delicious and tempting. I decided to go with one of my favorites that I haven't made in a while: Falafel, tabouleh, hummus and pita.
Now, I didn't have time to make the pita on my own, but I did make everything else. And it was delicious. And it looked pretty. And it went well with the wine. And there was hardly anything left over.
