Make It a Pleasant Afternoon 

Time to wine and dine

With last weekend came the unofficial start of summer — and the official beginning of the winery season. Because you've spent every dry weekend day so far this spring tending to your yard (those three days were tough!), you owe it to yourself to take at least one afternoon off to actually enjoy the outdoors. Mount Pleasant Winery (5634 High Street, Augusta) can help you break your all-work-all-the-time cycle. Its expansive patio and sunny hillside (here's hoping!) are perfect for relaxing, the wine is deliciously lip-smacking during warm-weather days (cross your fingers!), and Butch Wax & the Hollywoods are going to play all of your favorite old-school songs from 1 to 5 p.m. Admission to this lovely afternoon costs $5, and if you need directions or more information, call the winery at 800-467-9463 or visit And note: Picnics are welcome here, but outside beverages aren't.
