Right behind yoga, a tall glass of wine is our next favorite way to unwind after a long day at work. We never know what curveballs might come our way, so we're well aware of the importance of having a stocked bar. Back in college, when we were on a student's budget, it was Two-Buck Chuck that took the edge off those late-night cram sessions.
