Celebrate a Birthday

At A French Delight... Normally I don’t care much about celebrating my birthday. I like to celebrate every day, so what difference does my b-day make? I had planned to blow it out at Seattle’s Canlis restaurant for my big 6-0 last year, but Covid shut that plan down. Deep Cove Chalet So when this [...]

Onesta

It's National Rosé Day!!! It seems that there's a National Something day every day of the year. But since it's National Rosé day on June 12th, I thought it would be an excellent time to run a post on one of Napa's best Rosé makers: Jillian Johnson DeLeon.

Seared

A Native Son Who Knows His Grill… It's not often when you get to talk to a Napa or Sonoma native professional. It's not surprising really. A lot of top pros want to come here to make their bones.

Lucy Restaurant & Bar

Valentines can't buy her… I've never been a big fan of Valentine's Day. Seems you just get over spending a lot on Christmas when you got to turn around and blow a bunch on a silly, made up holiday like Valentine's Day. Not that I'm against romance, not at all. If you asked any of [...]
