The stock market has been on a wild ride lately. What’s behind this volatility? And, as an investor, how concerned should you be?
First of all, good economic news, such as low unemployment and higher wages, may have actually helped cause the large sell-off in stocks. That’s because a strong economy may lead to inflation and higher interest rates, which are not always good news for stocks.
Another factor behind the sell-off: Investors sold stocks to take profits gained from the long bull market – and when many people sell stocks at once, prices can drop fast.
Still, we’ve had big, rapid sell-offs in the past, and the market has generally recovered fairly quickly – past performance is not a guarantee of future results but as an investor, you may find that patience is a virtue.
Also, the country’s economic fundamentals are still quite strong, and corporate profits are rising – and since these two factors often drive stock prices, the prospects may be good for the financial markets.
In any case, review your portfolio to make sure it’s still appropriate for your needs. Even severe short-term price drops shouldn’t change your long-term investment strategy.

Well here we are… welcome to 2017 everyone! We’re back for another year of straight chillin’ at your friendly neighborhood wine bar. Normal programming starts up again with the first wine club release of 2017. Join us tonight the 9th from 6:30 – 8:30 for bites, sips and good vibes. Per usual, the tasting is $5 for members and $15 for the general public. Katie has picked out some winners and we’re excited to share with you!
Speaking of Katie, January 2017 marks the first in her series of wine 101 classes. Join her Tuesday January 17th to taste your way through 6 wines that exhibit “tipicity” for their grape or region. She’ll demystify wine terms and discuss how to identify a good bottle of wine without breaking the bank. This class will make you feel at ease next time it’s your turn to pick the bottle! Tickets are $40 — buy them HERE.
Lastly, thanks for a great 2016. We’re excited to cheers and grow with you in 2017.
As part of our Sunday Funday Campaign, we’ll be showing movies in the Sidebar on Sunday Evenings. We’re starting the series off with a soft launch of Halloween themed movies, this Sunday, the 9th: bring a lawn chair or snag a comfy seat on the setée. Buy a bottle, eat some popcorn and call it an evening! Movies will start at 6:30.
If you’ve been in the shop lately, you’ve probably noticed our handcrafted mid-century modern furniture collection. Gold Leaf has partnered with a local furniture design company and we are proud to stock their gorgeous pieces! The company, Four Studio, recently reduced their lead time—now when you order a piece, you’ll only wait 6-8 weeks until the custom chair or sectional is delivered to your door.
Check out Four Studio’s online catalogue HERE or visit our WEBSITE to find the perfect fit for your home. You can also stop by the shop to look at upholstery swatches in person (pet- and kid-friendly options available!) and to see for yourself how well-crafted and comfortable the line is.
We’ve got some fun events coming up for you. First off, Yoga-Mosa Returns! Saturday June 25th starting at 9:45 am. Join the Lovely Jules for an hour yoga sesh and then hydrate with anti-oxidant-rich mimosas! Buy your tickets HERE.
Then, Monday the 27th we’ll be welcoming Romina of Old World Wines to taste us on four wines from Hungary and Greece. Guaranteed, very few of us will be able to pronounce the name of the grapes correctly, but they sure are fun to drink and it’s fascinating to learn their History. Do as Plato did and drink Agiortiko! $16 ($5 for wine club members) for the tasting and themed snacks. Tickets available at the door, we’ll see you there 🙂
Then Tuesday the 28th, Art with Rachel returns! Paint yourself a masterpiece like the one above. $25 for the class and it’s No-Corkage Tuesday so you can grab a bottle and paint your heart out! Sign up for the class here!
Also, don’t forget to join us this week for BAR WEEK. We’re offering half off glasses of local wines and $3 guajillo pork empanadas. #eatlocal.
Finally (for now) Walkabout returns July 8th. You know, keep it on your radar.
Then, on Monday March 14th, we are dropping our March Wine Club.. This month will include exciting offerings such as Oregon Pinot Noir, San-Diego-made riesling from the famous Kick-On Ranch in Santa Barbara, Gavi di Gavi, and Carignan from the Rousillon. The tasting starts at 6:30 and is $5 for members and $15 for non-members. Per usual, complimentary bites will abound. So, join the club and the fun: we’ll see you there 🙂 (Read more about the perks of memership and sign yourself up HERE.)
Next up is the South Park Walkabout! March 19th from 6 – 10 PM, the streets of South Park will come alive with the sounds and smells of small business! We, here at The Rose, will be offering 20% off local bottles of wines to-go and, per usual, be slinging (limited amounts of) empanadas on the sidewalk (minus empanadita, our trusty empanada cart, which was stolen during business hours!)
Lastly, we wanted to let you know that, thanks to your support, The Rose has been noticed by San Diego Magazine as one of the top brunch and date-night spots in San Diego! Woot Woot! Thanks for yelping, enjoying and telling your friends. We you :))

That’s it for now. Look forward to information on the next yoga-mosa, Easter brunch and a four course dinner from the canyon slated for early April.
My holiday season started Thanksgiving week and it didn’t slow down from there. You can read about my adventures at the blog here. Now that the holidays are over, it’s time to take a deep breath and prepare for a brand new year. Taxes are just around the corner, we are electing a new president, and the much talked about El Niño is finally here for much needed rain. For those of you who succeeded with a handmade holiday in 2015, Congratulations! It was so great to see so many students in November and December learning how to sew for the first time. And for those of you who have “learning how to sew” as your new year’s resolution, we have our class schedule updated here and look forward to seeing you in the studio!
