My friends, I must be frank. The past week has not been easy for me. My entire family, including myself, has been sick with the flu so I didn’t get to do any of my DIY projects during the week. Bummer. When I can’t get to my primer and power tools, my knees start to shake and my hands start to twitch. I start to go a little stir crazy. So finally, on Saturday, I was finally able to tackle some projects. I’m hoping to feature them this week, if all goes well. Good stuff coming.
Y’all remember last week’s look at wine tasting in Napa. Here’s another peek at just a few more stops on our weekend getaway.
Day Two began by with a spectacular luncheon at Thomas Keller’s Bouchon in Yountville. As many of you know, Mr. Keller is famous for his world renowned French Laundry restaurant, also in Yountville, with its nine course prix fixe tasting menu. It’s practically impossible to get into the French Laundry, unless you go online at the exact perfect time (at midnight Pacific Standard Time two months in advance). Don’t believe me? Read this dude’s suggestions. And even if you do get in, you’ll spend your kids’ college fund on one meal. But as I understand from my swankier friends, it’s pretty spectacular.
For the ‘regular’ folk, there is Bouchon in Yountville. (And also in Vegas.) It’s a little slice of Paris in the heart of the Napa Valley, from the menu, to the interior décor, to the waiters in little black vests, ties, and aprons.
And the food. Oh, the food. It’s ooh, la, la, off the charts.
