@fring Indeed - looking forward to meeting you and delivering the Tercero this weekend. Just missed the Stewart Cellars but I need to take a break for the next few weeks, the storage unit is full - 3 cases added in the last month…
just working on a few CT entries prior to posting, as we can’t edit for long after the post.
They will show up in the ‘what are you drinking’ thread, or perhaps ‘gatherings’.
Moreno Valley…‘Meh’ I know should never left San Diego!!
But wait I found my ‘split-a-part’ and she likes wine, a Win-Win…29 years and counting!! (Got’go…don’t drink my 1/2 of that 2008 Wellington Victory!!!)
@ScottW58 Just saw this… I’m 40 minutes from Carlsbad, an hour from San Diego. LV is 4+ hours. Am I missing an inside joke?
N.B. we also have a place up in Big Bear, which halves the time and distance…
For the San Diego group, I snagged a 4-pack.
Only need a single, so three are up for grabs.
you can PM me with interest/info over at ww with the same username. Or, find some other creative way to contact me.
@rjquillin I haven’t found it that bad, actually; it’s about 40-45 minutes door to door. 30 minutes on a good day with no traffic.
Although my perspective may be a bit warped, as before I was down here I was living in Fullerton and commuting to downtown LA, which was hellish whenever I had to drive it (back then I usually took the train, which would make it about a 50 minute one-way trip, but whenever I drove it would take about two hours each way with the traffic).
@jawlz It’s the ‘no traffic’ caveat that puts you commuting at either 05:30 or 19:30.
I have the same issue 52/805 from Lakeside <-> Mira Mesa. I don’t miss LA either; Tujunga <-> Hollywood, Paramount Studios.
@CorTot@i8dacat@klezman@rjquillin Dim sum sounds good to me. We like NBC in Monterey Park, they have the carts that circulate instead of placing orders on paper. We go there for a lunar new year banquet every year and may have 4 - 6 seats available on Saturday 1/25. Depending on the banquet choice, it usually runs $50-$60 per person for 8-10 courses. If anyone is interested, let me know.
I am back in Temecula for the winter. I am happy to host another gathering out here. The new place is even better the the last one. Other Temecula people, give us a whisper, my wife and I are always looking for people to hang out at a winery with.
@radiolysis We have bought a place out here now. It has the most incredible view overlooking the valley and it is on 11 acres. We plan to be out here during the winter and maybe a month in the summer as well. Thank heavens for portable jobs.
