Free Art and Performances in the City - Yerba Buena Night

Yerba Buena Nights - SignsA couple of Saturdays ago, Mijo and I enjoyed a night of good entertainment featuring local artists. Did I mention it was also free, as in no cover charge, no entrance fee, no tickets, nada.  

We spent the Saturday evening around Yerba Buena on a free outdoor music and performances called Yerba Buena Night. We truly enjoyed it and we will definitely watch out for this next year. Thank you Yerba Buena community!

Play in the City - 1776 The Musical

1776 - programA month ago, my good friend Dinah asked me if I'd be interested in seeing a play slash musical at the American Conservatory Theatre. I said yes without realizing that the show was a day before my business trip.

I was having second thoughts on the day of the show because I haven't packed for my trip. I went anyway but I was rewarded in the process.

Pumpkin Fest in Halfmoon Bay - Pumpkin Patch, Arts and more Pumpkins

HMB Pumpkin Fest - Repetto PumpkinsThe cold air brushing my cheeks tells me that summer is definitely over. I feel a tinge of melancholy everytime summer ends. But that feeling of sadness disappears when I think about Halloween, pumpkins, Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Halfmoon Bay celebrated the Halfmoon Bay Art and Pumpkin Festival last weekend and it brought out the kid in us. I was suddenly reminded, Fall is not bad afterall.

Wine Tasting in Napa Valley - Honig Vineyard and Winery

Honig Vineyard and Winery - SignsAfter our third winery, Bob, Mijo, Bren and I decided to break for lunch at Tra Vigne in St. Helena. It was delicious. We did a quick tasting at Merryvale Vineyards since it is next to the restaurant.

Guess where we went after Merryvale? We went to Honig. I am glad we sampled their wines because they are good. Mijo and I will definitely go back and taste some more the next time we are in Napa Valley.

Wine Tasting in Napa Valley - MA(i)SONRY

Maisonry - DecorBob and Bren took us to Ma(i)sonry last year for the first time. Somehow. I couldn't find my pictures from our trip there last year. This is probably the reason why I never blogged it.

This year, we went back for another round of wine tasting and I made sure that I save the pictures, remember where I save them and blog my Ma(i)sonry experience. We always enjoy going there. Thanks Bob for taking us.
