Dreaming of California Wine

Sure, you can drink California wines just about anywhere in the world. What could be better than drinking the wine where its grapes are grown? I can't wait for the Wine Country Tour that Parkland is planning for September 30 through October 3, 2010. Details aren't quite confirmed, but I do know that we'll be staying in the heart of San Francisco and that we'll spend a whole day touring Napa Valley and/or Sonoma.

Keep watching this blog for updates. This tour can only accommodate 20-22 folks, so if you're dreaming of California wines like I am, get your name on the Tour list. You can call 217/353-2055. In the meantime, here's something to get you in the mood.

Broadway Bound

Just confirmed the 2 plays that our tour will be seeing in April. "Billy Elliott" which won a Tony award for Best Musical, and "A View From a Bridge," the revival of Arthur Miller's classic drama. Stars Liev Schreiber & Scarlett Johansson are getting rave reviews from many critics, including the NY Times. Read it here.
