  • Tolosa Winery in San Luis Obispo
    I remember one of their very first wine dinners, years ago, a small party of 20 people seated al fresco under the grape arbors on the grounds of the the old Mission in downtown San Luis Obispo CA.  The founders were there with their new release and talked about the long journey to that tasting, including divining the right name – Tolosa.  Naturally, the Mission...

  • California Farmers Market – SLO style
    There is nothing as beautiful as a ripe organic tomato.  Unless it’s the bright lights of the Las Vegas Strip.  I mean, truly, it is a really difficult choice.  Luckily, in my life, I don’t have to choose.  Right now while Vegas is blistering hot – and few places can blister like Vegas – I’ll take my cool days and chilly nights among the...

  • Blazed and Confused in Las Vegas
    Rex Reviews The kickoff show of the Blazed and Confused tour in Las Vegas was a huge success and a lot of fun. The lineup was amazing and the artists performed way better than I was expecting. I have seen Stephan Marley before at a festival but don”t really remember it, so it was basically like watching him for the first time again and he was very entertaining....

    San Luis Obispo County California – a little piece of paradise As you can tell by the photos, this ain’t Vegas.  Back on the Central Coast for July, we celebrated this little piece of paradise on the planet with a Bar-B-Q on the patio in San Luis Obipso (known to natives as SLO) and followed with fireworks on the beach by the Pismo Pier. A perfect day...
