People always like to know about a great spot. You want to go somewhere where you know you can find a table, has a laid back vibe, a few nibbles and a great space. My goal in terms of going to a great lounge is knowing that no matter what day you choose, it's always perfect. My pick for this week (and any other) is Xai Xai Wine Bar. This bar recently opened and is NYC's only South African Wine Bar. I love that in terms of "nibbles" they have tapas and cheese plates which are perfect. If you're looking for something to do on Friday after work, Shandy Fridays just started. For those of you that aren't as familiar with this, it's beer and sprite together. I think this combo is great for those that aren't really into beer but would like to learn more about it. Of course when I went last weekend, I enjoyed their selection of Shiraz and loved the very earthy natural vibe.
