The Valley

A few weeks ago for Jazzy MacFly's birthday we, {Coco, Paige, Justine, Lindsey, Lauren and myself} headed up to Napa Valley to spend the weekend indulging in the best restaurants, wineries & bar's the valley has to offer. Our abode for the weekend was in St. Helena at a beautiful house {thank you Faith!} with the most picturesque garden and bamboo forest that makes for a lovely setting to sit outside. We enjoyed the nearly perfect weather which resembles a Mediterranean climate whilst snacking on delicious cheeses + wine. It truly is amazing how lucky we bay area folks are that such a destination, whom people travel from around the world to see is basically in our backyard. Per usual, we documented the entire trip in hopes to share our memorable weekend with you too :) 
 Cheers!

Enjoying the garden + vino. 
We dined at Pat Kuleto's Martini House. 
Our friend Ruth, and no stranger to Gigi Ouf THE BLOG met us for dinner. {See her BFF Friday post here.}
New friend Buster showed up and Ruth taught us some napkin tricks! The bikini! Or Bow?
Espresso Martini's at the Martini House...a must.
I called this girl Justin Bieber and had to buy her a shot of patron to make up for it...oops. Look at the resemblance here
Mike took care of us all day in Wine 25, the limo. 
{H&M dress, Steve Madden stud shoes,Michael Kors purse,Michelle watch, Tory Burch sunnies, vintage earrings, strap from my Marc Jacobs bag necklace & borrowed blazer.}
Cade, where you will find the best Savvy Blanc & views of the valley, in my opinion. 
Enjoying our "Sex in the Valley" Martini's & a little Bocce Ball at Solage in Calistoga. A resort worth visiting solely for the beautiful people watching.
Educating myself at Ma(i)sonry. 
Wines + art + furnishings + a historical setting. A Yountville experience you cannot miss.
Not Captured :
*Our dinner at Farmstead, the hamburger is literally to die for. 
*Brunch at Tra Vigne and Lunch at the Tra Vigne Pizzeria.
*Shopping at Dragonfly - a treasure to be discovered. Think the dressing room scene from The Sweetest Thing
*Our night out at Ana's Cantina & the Calistoga Inn.

Oh, and check out Rick's How To on the "Sex in the valley" cocktail {don't mind our giggles + commentary...}
