Travel Theme: Mountains

So I spotted a picture of a beautiful mountain on one blog, and it brought me to another blog about  Travel Themes.  I loved the idea of a travel theme, so I had to participate.  Here is my contribution.

Now please remember I am a Midwestern girl; so anything larger than an anthill is a mountain to me.

Visitors

Two of my best friends from back home are visiting for the weekend. So what is on the menu of fun this weekend? LOTS!

Friday will see us touring Alcatraz and Fisherman’s Warf. We are then heading over to the Ferry Market Building for macaroons at Miette. YUM! Our dinner reservations are at Wexler’s, which has become one of my favorite restaurants in San Francisco. As for post-dinner entertainment, I would really like to head back to The Hidden Vine for a final glass of vino.

Saturday will see us heading up to Napa for some wine tasting. All of us have been to Napa/Sonoma a few times, so we are going to visit a few of our favorites. We will start at Elyse, and then over to Groth for their Open House, Stag’s Leap after lunch, and finally Sequoia Grove to finish out our Cabernet adventures. Dinner is planned for Bouchon, which I have never been, so I will have to give a review. And since we will be so close to Bardessono, I might have to stop in for a post-wine tasting drink.

Sunday will see us brunching somewhere before my friends leave. That is still being planned, as I hate brunch. And yes, I know brunch is a HUGE thing to do on Sunday mornings in San Francisco. But I never know what to order – breakfast or lunch? I always feel like I am being cheated out of a meal.

So what are your plans this weekend?
