Industrial Eats Deli top - extras to purchase

“Speaking” of the Central Coast – Industrial EATS

While I was at it, I also ordered a glass of Ampelos Pinot Noir which was served in a heavy tumbler. I had no qualms.

How I Get Great Photos! Ztylus Case for My iPhone 6s!

Smartphones may very well be the new Nikons. Or if you have an iPhone 6s Plus like I do, even Hasselblads! (inside photographer joke).

The Intern – Movie with Wine. ish.

While there is an eyebrow-raising scene or two with Mr. De Niro and Rene Russo in this movie, there’s nothing that sets him up as a romantic lead. He’s too sweet, nice, and cheek-pinchable.
More Olive Oils

Big Horn Olive Oil Company – EVOO & Budget Clash

The flavors are amazing; they have small tasting cups that you can use to sample. That's how I ended up spending so much money. It's a plot.

Sideways 3, Chile

If this book is ever made into a movie, Chile’s tourism department will be swamped with Americans who will want to go on the new Chilean wine trail.
Jalama-Cargasacchi Pinot Noir

2010 Jalama-Cargasacchi Pinot Noir – Jewelry in a Glass

Like many of the other wineries in the Ghetto, his vineyards are located in what can arguably be termed the middle of nowhere.
The Day Job

Bottle Shock – Not the Movie!

I spent a lot of days doing little at home other than vegging on my recliner, drinking copious amounts of water (we had an incredible heat wave and I touched little other than water and juice), and watching TV. The good life.

The Anomaly of Donati Family Vineyard

I met with Mitch Bakich, a handlebar-mustachioed young man who is the Managing Evangelist of Donati. I was able to taste through all of their available wines and despite the screaming shrieks and agonized protests of the Budget™, walked out with at least half a case.

An Evening at Jaleo

So what do you do when you've had the opportunity to visit one of the best restaurants in Vegas and do a review, but you're with your main squeeze? You punt.
The Mirage, Las Vegas

The Mirage Hotel and Casino – A Rant

It doesn't seem too much to ask for clean sheets without holes, a fridge that I can use, room TV service that's dependable, and stable Internet. Either that or cut the price of a stay. I can get better service (fridge and all) at any Courtyard, and at a far lower cost.
