Local Love: Con’ Olio Oils & Vinegars

18 May

I suppose it was rather appropriate that I visited Con’ Olio on the Sabbath (Sunday, for any heathens reading) because it was a teaser of what foodie heaven would be like.  So now, I’m taking it upon myself to spread the gospel of gourmet olive oils and vinegars.  The minute I walked in, I wanted to let out a loud squee!, but thought the better of it; after all, this wasn’t some boy band concert at the Erwin Center (but if you’d like to join me in extolling the virtues of ‘N Sync versus New Kids on the Block, email me! [note: I do not condone this boy band activity-B]).  Housed in the Arboretum shopping center next door to Nine West, this charming little store has walls lined with silver canisters that are filled with infused olive oils and vinegars. Customers are free to sample every single one. Did I mention squeee!?

gimme more!
