Few, what a week. The old day job had us in five states and seven cities over the past four days!

Now it’s time to think about the weekend, read on for what’s going on here in the Napa Valley…

Saturday, July 24th

  • At 8pm at the newly renovated and re-opened Uptown Theatre in downtown Napa, Toad the Wet Sprocket will perform. Doors open at 6pm and tickets are $37 and $47 per person to see this 4-piece ‘folk-pop’ band of Santa Barbara, CA high school cronies. Call 707-259-0123 for more information
  • From 4pm – 8:30pm the Great Chefs of Napa Valley Series will continue at Cedar Gables Inn on Coombs Street in Napa.
