I had an awesome girls weekend with two of my sisters and my stepmom. We went to Napa Valley! So beautiful, one of my favorite places to hang and relax and if anyone comes to visit California - a must see!
So we didn't go to Napa until Saturday afternoon, and I was able to get my long run in before we left. My stepmom is a little dingy, and she forgot she was suppose to pick me up on the way to get Amy...and she forgot her purse...she had me a little worried about her. She is doing a raw foods cleanse right now, and I just think it isn't working too well for her brain function. But anyway... the show was Saturday night and it was pretty good - a lot like being at a Janis Joplin concert, but without the smell of pot. The girl singing sounded EXACTLY like Janis, so that was pretty cool.
The first store we hit was the "Wine Stop" that is located in The Train Depot - where we did a wine tasting (at about 10:30am) and bought a case of wine. We had a very pleasant, funny server named Tom, who actually owns the shop. We even met the guy who buys all of Michael Jordan's wine for all of his restaurants and personal collection (at least that is what he told us) - he was a pretentious ass, but entertaining.
So we walked, and shopped, and ate lunch in Calistoga which was tres fun.
We finished off the weekend with a wine tasting at Cakebread Cellars. My stepmom is actually a granddaughter of a Cakebread, so we thought that was the best winery to stop at...we didn't know we needed a reservation! but luckily we were able to get in.and the wine was fab, so we bought a second case to split...
