Assuming I didn't want to spend a night in Point Reyes, would I be best staying 2 nights in Healdsburg (Wednesday and Thursday - taking in a few wineries), then driving back to San Fran on Hwy 1 past Point Reyes (maybe stop for lunch at Nick's) on Friday? Alternative, as mentioned above, is stay in Healdsburg Wednesday night, drive down to Carmel Thursday morning, spend the afternoon there, stay one night at Bernadus then drive back North to San Fran on Friday. Thanks...

Looks pretty cool and Jetsetter has a sale on it...
How about this: - Friday night : arrive in San Fran, stay at the Monaco (?) - Saturday: take in a Giants game (I'm a casual baseball fan, but am told it's the nicest park in the country). Maybe go over to the Ferry building (Slanted Door or Hog Island) - Sunday morning: drive to Yountville - Sunday/Monday/Tuesday: take in some wineries (Hess, Schafer, Phelps. Del Dotto, Arroyo, Anderson's Conn Valley, Charbay (for spirits) and others are on my list, but I'll keep it to 2-3...
Guys, I'm planning a Nor Cal trip for next April and would appreciate some insights. The focus of the trip will be food, wine and sightseeing. Here's what I know so far: - we'll be arriving late on a Friday night (prob in San Fran) and leaving the following Sunday (8 full days) again from San Fran - would like to spend 4 nights in San Fran (either Friday - Monday or Friday/Saturday and the following Friday Saturday). The reason for this is I was planning to take...

All, I'm looking to add to my shoe collection and I think a burgundy/oxblood oxford is next on my list (my current collection is listed below). My initial thought was C&J but unless I'm missing something, they don't seem to stock anything in that colour range. I would welcome any specific suggestions you guys have, as well as pics of your own burgundy/oxblood shoes. Currently own: - black C&J weymouth (wholecut) - brown AE park avenue - brown Borrelli split-toe...
Great meal at Globe Bistro last night. It's definitely become one of my go-to spots in the city for consistent food and service. As an added bonus, on Sunday nights, they offer half off their wine list (except the "reserve" section, which are typically $120+). Had a very good Grange Diana Block '07 Pinot Noir for $37.50! Food was good, we sampled a few apps, the gnocchi and the ribeye. Desserts were a definite highlight, including ginger creme brulee and their take...

I think George is my favourite high-end place in the city now that the old Splendido is gone. Consistently great food, great cocktails and a good (not...
