A Wine Vino Artilce for Your Viewing

Things To Do In The Napa Valley When You Are All Wined Out.

Those of you who have read my articles before know how crazy I am about the Napa Valley. It is absolutely GORGEOUS!

And that takes nothing away from the other wine growing regions of California, they are great too. I just happen to really like the Napa Valley and its wines. Over 3 million people come to the valley each year to savor wine, relax and get away.

So, after an intense day or two of tours and tastings, what do you do?

If you pack too much into your trip, you may want to just sit back and relax a bit and do something other than just more wine tasting.

Well, the Napa Valley has you well taken care of!

Hiking trails, museums, art galleries, discount outlet malls, golf, tennis, horse back riding, historic buildings, historic state parks, spas, ballooning and much more.

Take an afternoon and visit historic Robert Louis Stevenson state park.

Do a round of golf at Kennedy Golf Course (one of several courses).

See the history of the Napa Valley at the Napa Valley Museum.

In Calistoga you can visit the Calistoga Geyser and relax in a delightful hot geyser spring spa.

Don't want to travel all the way to Calistoga from Napa? There are several excellent spas in Napa, Yountville and St. Helena.

Or, you can combine a bit of wine tasting with art. Visit the Hess Collection to see their art gallery and savor their fine wine.

Artesa is "the jewel of the Napa Valley", sitting high on a hill, looking out over the Carneros region towards San Francisco, just 10
minutes from downtown Napa and feels like you are miles away. Here's a secret - after your tasting, walk out on the back porch and
see gorgeous vistas of rolling hills. On a clear day you can see almost all the way to San Francisco. Artesa is built into the top
of a hill. It has wonderful fountains. It really is a jewel.

Cuvaison is another winery with art.

Looking for spectacular architecture? Visit Chateau Montelena, Darioush or Niebaum Coppola.

Copia - The American Center For Wine Foods and the Arts is an educational look into the history and culture of art, food and wine.

There is just so much you can do that you don't need to spend all of your time doing tours and tastings.

The single most important thing to remember? Relax and enjoy your stay. There is lots to do in Napa and it will still be here when you come back for another visit.

25 Things

God damn you all for passing that meme all around Facebook. You know the one. 25 random things about yourself. After I got a bajillion of them, I finally decided to break down and do it myself. Perhaps a little too honest, but fuck it. No shame in my game. Enjoy. Or suck it. Whichever. I'm convinced I have ADD because I have to be doing multiple things at the same time (i.e., emailing while watching tv while listening to music) and get distracted very....OOOH SHINY! I went to jail and ended up

Pete Doherty Grace/Wasteland album review

Mon, 02 Feb 2009 03:35:31 -0800
I’ve been waiting in the wings for awhile now for Pete Doherty to release a solo album, and finally that day has come. For me, his best performances have been the times that I’ve seen him play on his own with just an acoustic guitar and his voice. However, with debut solo album Grace/Wasteland, there’s a mix of some of the acoustic Pete Doherty that is endearing and raw and also songs filled with the colorful musicianship of a full band. With all that’s been written in the media about Pete D
