On the road again…
If you happen to find yourself between San Francisco and Santa Barbara, consider dropping by Paso Robles for a wine excursion in California’s Central Coast.
Start with a really cute house.
Other than a mild ant issue, the Call-Booth House was a perfect spot to decamp for the weekend.
Larger and smaller options available from Paso Robles Vacation Rentals, many of them just blocks from Paso Robles’ oh-so-quaint downtown square.
Walk around downtown and stop into Firefly.

Just exactly I’ve been searching for!
…No, really. I was.
Of all the tasting rooms that dot downtown, Pithy stands out as a beacon of crisp modern design amid its more stodgy neighbors.

It seems that Pithy serves up whimsy more than anything: having fun with some of their blends, such as their “Elephant in the Room” red…
…to their home-crafted line of sodas.
And now that you’re (or was that just me) good and boozy from the very reasonably-priced tasting ($10 for 5 wines, $3 for 5 sodas), on to the food of Paso Robles..
Local, organic, seasonal, CSA-supporting Thomas Hill Organics rotates its menu so that all menu options are always the best of the moment.

…mmmm, so much cheese.
Let’s Be Honest: Wine is why you’re here.
Oh, By The Way: No matter what anyone says, if you’re leaving from LA on a Friday afternoon, the drive will most definitely take you more than 3.5 hours. Way more.
Accessorize: With anything from Firefly. (Their website is gorg.)
