How We Conquered Paso Robles Wine Festival

You have three choices for Paso Robles Wine Festival: 1) go to the main event in the park 2) avoid the crowds at the park and go to some wineries or 3) don’t do anything. Well, number 3 simply wasn’t an option for us and we’ve done the main event in the park four or five times. This year we decided to hit up a couple of wineries… Read more…

7th Annual Warbirds, Wings, & Wheels

Back on May 9th we decided to take Sammy (our 2.5 year old son) over to Estrella Warbirds Museum for the 7th Annual Warbirds, Wings, & Wheels event. Annie and I have been a couple of other times in past years to check it out but we thought Sammy was of the age to possibly enjoy it. Read more…

Interesting Wine Tasting Room Data

I don’t remember who sent the tweet out on Twitter but I saw the Wine Business link there, or you can use the YouTube link to the video…either will do. Some of what was discussed was obvious and common sense to me (yet so many wineries still screw it up) but there was some very interesting data in here as well. I STRONGLY urge all wineries with tasting rooms to check this video out and reassess your business. Read more…

Paso Robles Water and the New Rules

I live in Paso Robles. Prior to May 15, 2015 we had a three day per week irrigation (landscape watering) rule and Mondays were a mandatory no landscape water day. Well, things are changing. They are tightening down once again in Paso. Read more…

Where to Eat: Thomas Hill Organics in Paso Robles

Are you noticing that we eat a lot? I am…and I’m okay with that. Another recent dining experience was at Thomas Hill Organics. Although we’ve been there many times this time was a bit different for me. There menu seems to have changed a bit and in my opinion, they seem to be pushing the “unique” factor. I don’t mean anything bad by that, being unique is great. The menu just seemed a little more “big city” than Paso. Read more…

Podcast: Random Thoughts with Bill and Rob

I was recently invited to be on the Random Thoughts with Bill and Rob podcast. If you have never heard of it you must be living under a rock. Actually, you’ve probably never heard of them because they just recently started their podcast, they are roughly 19 or 20 shows in. Read more…

Lunch at Villa Creek Restaurant

It felt like we hadn’t been to Villa Creek Restaurant in a while so on a recent ‘date day’ (just means we had a babysitter) we stopped in to see what was happening on the menu. We ordered the guacamole, chips, and salsa because it’s really freakin’ good. The salsa has this great smoky characteristic to it. I could drink that straight up through a straw. Read more…

Where to Eat: Buona Tavola in Paso Robles

Here’s yet another establishment that we had been to many times in the past and truly enjoyed but somehow it slipped off our radar or…we got lazy. Buona Tavola in Paso Robles is an Italian joint on Spring Street, a couple blocks from the downtown park. It is a quaint (small but very comfortable) fine dining destination well worth the visit.

Q&A with Loo Loo Farms in Paso Robles

I don’t know about you but I dig farmers. Prior to meeting Annie I never really thought about it. I’m pretty sure there was no farm producing the Mexican Pizzas or Nachos Bell Grande from Taco Bell. Taco Bell was my farm. However, Annie got me into food. Real food. The stuff that not only tastes good but is good for you. Read more…

Breakfast in Paso Robles

We have never been big go-out-for-breakfast people but recently we’ve been getting into it. It’s kind of fun to get up on a Saturday or Sunday morning, grab Sammy, and go out for a good breakfast and hopefully mimosas. So what are all the breakfast spots in Paso Robles and which is your personal favorite? Read more…
