Wine bags for the crafty set
Sorry, but that brown paper bag doesn’t quite cut it at BYOB restaurants like Black Hogg in Silver Lake.
Not that you need to go in for an expensive leather wine tote disguised as a man purse. That’s definitely overkill.
How about these tongue-in-cheek wine bags from the Nest Vintage and Handmade in Anaheim? Made by Nest’s Lisa Rios, they’re suitably crafty for the neighborhood, labeled with wine-friendly words such as HOORAY!, CHEERS!, WINO and, er, LUSH. Which are you?
And for hiking refreshment, they’ve got some winsome whiskey flasks too, emblazoned with mustaches, whales, bicycles, octopi. Claim your preference.
Nest Vintage and Handmade, 423 s. Brookhurst St., Anaheim, (916) 4MY-NEST (469-6378), www.nestvintageandhandmade.com. Wine bags and flasks, $18.
