Happy Birthday Andy! (Exploring Skaneateles)

Festivity, Food, Travel

I am a firm believer that every birthday, no matter how “unexciting” the age reached, is worth celebrating  and should be fun and inspirational. After all, every birthday marks another year on this earth.

To celebrate Andy’s birthday (which is today) he and I decided to spend Saturday in Skaneateles, NY, taking in the sites and exploring a town yet unknown to us.

Below is a recap of the awesome day we had with information on the given venues:

WINERY Our first stop, and one of our main destinations, was Anyela’s Winery. Overlooking a beautiful view of the finger lakes region, I would highly recommend this destination to anyone. The staff was friendly, the ambiance was refined and the wine was delicious. A basic tasting was only $5.00 so if you are in the area, why not?


PUB After visiting Anyela’s, we felt like having another drink. Doing a quick Google search, the Lakeside Pub sounded promising. Making our way along one of the main streets in the town, we followed the crowd and found ourselves in what is apparently the hot spot of Skaneateles.


BURGERS Lastly, we visited Johnny Angels Heavenly Hamburgers for lunch. A burger joint with a price range similar to that of Five Guys Burgers and Fries the burgers were absolutely delicious. Andy ordered the Angel burger…



and I got the Poached egg burger…


Even if you’re not a carnivore, the menu boasted a wide variety of salads and gourmet sandwiches.

If you are ever in the area, this is only a handful of noteworthy locations in this beautiful town. I know that we will definitely be returning in the near future to explore the rest of what this location has to offer!
