I get to drink plenty of vino - a random $10 bottle recommended by the kid at the little wine shop down the street.
And - since wine isn't particularly good at quenching thirst - plenty of Pepsi Max on the side.
Bringing your own food means that you pare down to the very basics.
Beautiful weather means your husband grills (and reads a giant textbook while he's at it).
Steak and roasted green beans, mushrooms and onions?
Not a bad first night.
