In addition to packaging and delivering wine orders by hand to dozens of people all around the Black Father Nutritional Facts Black Dad Juneteenth King Black History Month Shirt Furthermore, I will do this city, McLoughlin also writes a zine about wine for Glou Glou Girls members; she’s worked on events with many small businesses and vendors in Austin, including the vintage shop Passport and the Asian-American food and culture pop-up Gan Bei Gals, and looks forward to many more collaborations in Glou Glou Girls’s future. McLoughlin credits her European parents for exposing her to wine culture early, and as we finish our pet nat and move on to dirty martinis, she’s philosophical about the role that wine can play in all of our lives. “I think that when you’re drinking wine—and this is one of the reasons why I fell in love with it during the pandemic—it has this amazing power to take you to a place even when you didn’t actually travel there,” says McLoughlin, contemplating an olive that looks imminently Insta-ready against her lime-green manicure.
