I've been up in Napa Valley since Friday afternoon, and just got back a few hours ago. Friday evening, we took the Wine Train from downtown Napa. The ride lasts from 6 to 9:30 or so with dinner and plenty of wine choices. Dave, Miriam, Miriam and I had a great time on the Train. In the return trip, we where sitting near the live pianist and where able to make some lively requests other than the classic or jazz stuff, like Knocking on Heaven's Door. LOL A waiter and waitress had excellent voice and sang some too...and Miriam #2 got up and sang once too. We where all buzzing off all the wine, and just where laughing our heads off at times. That was a lot of fun. After that, we headed over to Sonoma to meet up with some other friends. It was cool...but remember this in case you head up...Sonoma has no night life to speak of, ok. We got up late on Sat and after lunch headed up hwy 29 to hit up a few wineries for a tour and some tasting. The tour at BV was interesting. The wine tasting was actually more fun that I thought it would. After going to downtown Napa at night, we headed back to the hotel before 12am to get our sleep. The trip was a lot of fun and I can't wait to go again, though, maybe more prepared next time, but it was great just being spontanious up there too.
