Women Who Wine™ "Uncorked Conversations" at Eat Greek Midtown 6.21.17

Let's talk about sex baby, while enjoying some wine and good company (yes, I'm singing).

Hi ladies, excited to host another Women Who Wine™ “Uncorked Conversations” event. The last “Uncorked Conversations” Cuban–inspired food and wine pairing with guest speaker Nikki Novo at Off The Mile restaurant was wine-tastic. Check out the recap and photos here.

Although talking about sexuality can be uncomfortable, it's a conversation worth having. Women's sexual health, like men's, is important to overall emotional and physical well-being. A fulfilling sex life improves your sleep quality and reduces stress (cheers to that). But achieving a healthy and satisfying sex life takes mindfulness and open communication with your partner.

About Eat Greek

If I ever go missing, you can either find me at a wine shop or Eat Greek Midtown. A true gem, Eat Greek is one of my favorite restaurants in Miami. Having visited Greece in 2013 (dying to go back) and loving Mediterranean cuisine, Eat Greek is authentic and affordable. A casual spot adorned with murals of ancient gods and herb gardens. The varied menu includes: Greek salad, Tzatziki, souvlaki, gyros, to lamb chops all flown in from Greece (hungry yet?). With several locations throughout Miami, Billy, the owner and my friend has poured his heart out into all his restaurants and is ready to give you a Greek experience like no other (Greeks do it big, so get ready!).
