Okay, tabling Friday night for now, if people are around maybe we'll do something but ... Saturday we'll probably hit Vincent Arroyo first to pick up wines, and then maybe a place or two on the way down to Scott Harvey Harvest party, followed by Ty Caton after party at night. Sparky and I have also each signed up a team to stomp grapes at Scott Harvey and I know you don't want to miss that sight!

I was gonna suggest the 11th, but that's the weekend Adultcon is in LA, and I'm not sure I can tear Nostrom0 or Java away that weekend. Boys with toys you know ....

Hmmmm. Scott Harvey is having his first grape stomping contest at the vineyard in St. Helena, CA on Saturday, September 18th. 1:00pm - 6:00pm.


How far away are you? And is anyone interested in making a team (2 people: stomper and sweeper)? The winner of each heat will win a Jana or Scott Harvey T-Shirt along with a Magnum of one of our wines and the winning team of the final heat will receive a big 3 Liter bottle of wine.

Open to wine club members now, and general public on Sept. 1st.

If y'all are thinking about coming up, make it the 18th (we're talking Sept. right?). Scott Harvey's harvest party but also Sonoma Crush festival, Wellington and Caton are involved. Though there doesn't seem to be a one day ticket and I'll probably spend most of Sat. at Vincent Arroyo and Scott Harvey with mewalk, so not sure.

Probably too far away to host and enjoy wine country, takes me like an hour and a half, and you'll probably want to stay closer to Sonoma then you will Walnut Creek :P Either way, I'm fine hosting just seems silly. I already rsvp'd a team, lol, though I don't have a partner, was waiting for worstveg to confirm, she might be going to chicago, and if she wasn't coming I was going to spring it on Mel

Also the Ty Caton & Michael Muscardini special anniversary evening for wine club members (myself and 2 others free, $10 for each additional):

Saturday, September 18th, 2010
5:00 pm ~ 8:00 pm


So maybe host on that Friday (17th), and then we have the weekend in Napa/Sonoma? Could hit Vincent Arroyo again as well.

Wait, what? Nooooo! What time slot did you pick Sparky? I went for 3 p.m., so pick a different one and hopefully we'll be in the finals, lol. Though honestly I just wanted to stomp, and if partner wanted to stomp too we'd just be less efficient and have fun :P

Maybe, I guess can check interest. Worstveg may be out of town though and J'll be in Vegas, it'd be kinda funny if I dragged them to all these different things and once I finally host one neither of them are around

p.s. I also should check with roommates, one of them has a friend visiting at the end of the month and if she's sleeping in the living room it might make celebrations a little more interesting :P Not sure what dates though.

Nevermind on the 17th .... I may have Jury Duty then. Hopefully I'll finish earlier in the week, but it could drag out til Friday.

Thinking of flying out early Saturday morning to SFO, and then leave early on Sunday to try to get back for the LA Lobstah Festival.

Jet Blue is having their $49 sale.

That weekend is no good - except later on Saturday night and Sunday. That'd be Yom Kippur and I'll be fasting with little chance of wine drinking.

I nearly cried when I saw both Scott's and Ty's emails this week.

Oh, that sucks, also means worstveg is probably out since I don't think either of us realize about Yom Kippur.

We're scheduled for the stomp at 2 pm, so we have a chance (ha,ha,ha) to meet Kev in the finals at 5pm.


And how many want to go to the Ty Caton anniversary afterwards? Need a count for the RSVP.

I'd be up for Caton, but kinda depends if I can convince anyone to join us that day and how they feel. It'd be a long day to wake up early and drive out to VA from here, and then party all day.

Yipes.

Seems like most in Sonoma are booked. Or really expensive for the 18th.


$140 - Napa Valley Redwood Inn
3380 Solano Ave, Napa, CA - 7.9 miles


$149 - Travelodge Napa Valley Hotel Suites
853 Coombs St, Napa, CA - 8.9 miles


$149 - Chablis Inn Napa Valley
3360 Solano Ave, Napa, CA - 7.9 miles


$162 - Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites
5001 Main St, American Canyon, CA - 13.1 miles


And while Hotwire was offering $39, I think it was for Santa Rosa-Rohnert Park-Petaluma hotels. $143 for a 2.5 star in Napa area.

Kinda random coincidence but the Berkeley Wine Meetup group set the Scott Harvey party as one of their meetings, so I might be meeting more strangers there, and hopefully find a stomping partner.

Jury Duty is done (didn't get on one, phew!), so will drive up on Friday. Just not sure if driving all the way or stopping short. Skipping LA Lobster Fest, since my partner in crime is skipping it this year.

Will take you up on Saturday night (I like Free!!).
