The 3rd Corner Wine Shop & Bistro

We met up with Palma and Brad and Shannon in Palm Desert Saturday night to have wine and appetizers at a brand new wine bar there, The 3rd Corner Wine Shop & Bistro. Here is the announcement I found on the Palm Springs Life Magazine website.

What a neat place! Not only do they have a huge selection of GOOD wines (remember I am a wine snob), but the bar area is darling! And if you buy wine in the wine shop, you can take it right over to the bar (or the bistro) for a shockingly low corkage fee of $5. This is my kind of place!

We sat in the bar area and ordered several appetizers to share. Our wine guru Shannon picked out a couple of pinots, and several of us chose glasses of white wines to start. Great by-the-glass selections too - that's a definite plus in my book!

Here is Palma with Sean, the personable bar manager, who made sure we had everything we needed:

Palma has blogged about our evening here so you can see the traditional food photos.

All I can say is Wow! We loved the place! In spite of the summer heat, I wish we lived in Palm Desert so we could go more often!

PS - In case you are wondering why my outside photos look so similar to Palma's, it's because she took my camera outside to snap some shots at the same time she took hers. They were just so pretty, I hated to leave them off my blog post.
