The valley’s 400-plus wineries and bustling tasting rooms can make Napa a daunting conquest. On your next trip, keep it simple with 10 of our favorite spots, from the nationally renowned to the rare hidden gem.
If you're ever in need of a pick-me-up, sometimes nothing does it better than a bright bouquet of fresh flowers. The energy that flowers bring to your desk, your dinner table or your nightstand (and thus, your life) is unmatched by a cocktail, a batch of cookies, or new clothes–although those are awesome too. When we need a few stems, we head to Church Street Flowers for their expert hand in arranging (they've been doing it for over 25 years!) and gorgeous, ever-changing selection of flora.
Based on the overwhelming popularity of the summer series, SF Chefs is pleased to announce an expansion of the Dinner Party Project. Join some of our favorite chefs for a unique glimpse into their friendships, cooking styles and culinary visions. First up, Maximum Mina at RN74, featuring the San Francisco Michael Mina Group chefs.
Craving something new and different for dinner? We've got just the thing. Head to TRACE Restaurant in the gorgeous W Hotel downtown on November 16 for an awesome collaboration dinner between TRACE's esteemed Executive Chef Paul Piscopo and the vagabond taco-slanging team Jason Hoffman and Justin Close, otherwise known as The Taco Guys.
Gabrielle Medina and Sophana Tann's story started when they were little kids. The Medina family moved into the Tanns' building, and the two families became next-door neighbors. As a child, Sophana played with the Medina boys, and one day they invited Sophana into their house–that's when Gabrielle and he first met.
Initially, they were just friendly neighbors, but as time passed, Sophana started to develop true feelings for Gabrielle. He couldn't tell at the time if she felt the same way, but everyone joked that they would be together when they got older.
In another tasteless election year full of half-truths, back room compromises, and diluted promises, wouldn't it be great to sit down and enjoy something pure and righteous? While many would argue it's akin to a religious intervention, we're talking about enjoying a dose of one hundred percent pure joy via a bottle or two of Layer Cake Wines.
It doesn't get much better than watching world-class film talent flicker across the silver screen amongst the gorgeous, rolling hills of Napa Valley. That's why we're excited for the approaching Napa Valley Film Festival, which kicks off on November 7th and doesn't stop until November 11th.
One event we can't wait to attend is the Food Arts panel series, from November 9-11.
