My wonderful wife and I recently celebrated our 3rd anniversary in San Francisco and The Napa Valley. Of course, I couldn't make the trip without contacting the local crew




Just a few pics to take you along for the ride:

Early flight=


San F was beautiful




My lovely wife enjoying a lunchtime cocktail at The Slanted Door


Not so pleased that I had to do a wrist-shot


Drinks at Absinthe




Sebo Sushi






Although the majority of my Golden Gate GTG pics were crap, due to poor lighting and cameramanship, I'll show you everything worth a dang:









Grandfather and grandson (thanks again, Kevin )






I couldn't believe when I was handed this. I still can't. WOW!!!!!








And after all of that, there was only one sub-par group shot that I had to run through several filters to make even close to legible Great group! I really can't say enough about how real and kind they were!




More alcohol



Breakfast of champions


And the line to get it


Boats



The Comstock Saloon







Ya can't go to SF and not see this




A nice dual wristshot over our final SF drinks



We head North, to where the beer flows like wine




Napa Valley, aka: The Garden of Eden

















Michael Chiarello's Bottega








Iron Chef Morimoto's












A trip to Napa would be a COMPLETE WASTE without 






Oddly enough, this was on the patio of the restaurant we met up at


A squid, but close enough


A truly special piece 


Thanks, bro!


My Graceland










The Baconater



A treasure I picked up






A true blessing from every angle!

We are certainly considering a move


Thanks a ton to the GG Ristis, to Micah, and to my perfect wife. 

Also, thanks to you for taking the time









May the force be with you........................Always!

I am slowly turning her! She is now ultimately pumped for GTGs! You must admit, it is hard to not love Ristis

She needs a Rad and then it's Game Over!
