Well, me and the Mr will definitely be there, wherever there is. Although if we don't find a host maybe we can pull together a small group at a restaurant or something.

That could work. There are some nice no corkage restaurants in LA.

Unfortunately I'm already driving from San Fran to LA and flying out that Sunday from LAX, so I think San Diego might be a stretch for us this time around:-(

Are you sure?


I mean, you aren't going to do a cross country bicycle ride while baking goodies?

Undecided at this point. Looking for someone to host (hint, hint).

Perhaps time to think of a restaurant as an option at least to hold us over until someone offers to host. If it weren't Saturday I'd look at getting a larger air B&B closer to people and host there (with permission from the owner of course). I could do that for a Friday night if people were interested, but Saturday unfortunately we'll be wanting to stay closer to LAX. I think my plan is to be down that way starting sometime 9/8. And by down that way, suggestions on where we might want to stay (city wise anyway), I know you mentioned maybe a trip to Stone Mark (which my husband would love love love).

Looking into some ... need to call and verify corkage.

Hope you have better luck there than I did down here for a Saturday pulling-of-the-corks when Otolith visits.
Did get Top of the Market to discount their normal corkage from $25 to $15 however.

Looking like Tony P's in Marina Del Rey. $12 corkage, plus view of marina.

5pm sound good? Or 6pm?

Rest are all $15. Sadly, Upstairs2 no longer has agreement with The Wine House downstairs, where any bottle purchased there was free corkage.



Edit: 6pm it is!

Well, you missed a Schug PN and a Woot Cellars Revelry. Along with fine dining with a wonderful view and great people.
