Have you ever scrolled through Facebook and found the ONE EVENT that you've been waiting for so you can finally cross it off your bucket list?  Ever since I was little, I've wanted to stomp grapes at a vineyard thanks to an episode of "I Love Lucy".  If that's been on your dream list, I've got some good news because that vineyard event is happening near Rochester, Minnesota in September.

The 'I Love Lucy' episode was funny but this blooper of a reporter will make you laugh and cry!

I told a bunch of my co-workers that I wanted to stomp grapes and they immediately started laughing and telling me about the Grape Lady video.  I looked like a space cadet because I had no clue what they were talking about.  They filled me in real quick and showed me the video below.  Now, I'm just hoping I survive this whole experience.

Stomp grapes at Four Daughter's Vineyard and Winery in Spring Valley, Minnesota!
