Weekend Rewind Special: Napa, April 13-17
My Christmas gift from Joe this year was a trip to Napa, California. Yes, I am spoiled. We took off last week, stopping in San Francisco for Mexican food, and then driving up to Napa, where we stayed at the Elm House Inn, which has to be the best Best Western in the entire world: not only do they offer an impressive breakfast spread every morning, complete with homemade Belgian waffles, but the staff is exceedingly friendly and helpful, AND they serve fresh baked coconut chocolate-chip cookies EVERY DAY at 6 o’clock. They are in the running for best cookie I’ve ever had.
Basically, we spent our vacation drinking really good wine, taking in gorgeous scenery, enjoying perfect weather, and eating delicious food. Oh yeah, and also getting engaged.
Here are a few pictorial highlights from the trip:
The wine cave at Jarvis, one of the coolest tours I’ve taken.
Delicious steak and whipped potatoes at Ad Hoc

The best pork chop I’ve ever eaten…twice (got it last time we went also)–Bistro Don Giovanni
My perfect antique ring, from Eerie Basin, an antique shop in Red Hook, Brooklyn
I’d like to go back now. What are your favorite vacation destinations?
